  1. Place the flour and salt into a bowl and add the eggs. Mix the water with the milk and pour about half onto the eggs. Whisk together till it starts to become smooth. Add the rest of the liquid and whisk until smooth.
  2. Set aside for 20 – 30 minutes to allow the flour to absorb into the liquids.
  3. Take a small fry pan and rub a small piece of butter around the surface. Use a ladle to pour the liquid into the fry pan. Tip the pan from side to side to cover the bottom of the pan.
    The pancake should be fairly thin so don’t use too much of the mixture for each pancake. Allow to cook for about a minute until all the liquid has set.
    Gently shake the pan and it should come loose. You may need to use a spatula to release the edges if it sticks.
    You can either turn the pancake with the spatula or traditionally it is tossed.
    The cooked side should look ‘lacy’ and brown.
  4. Cook the second side for another minute and tip the pancake out onto a plate.
    Continue to cook the pancakes and stack them on top of each other. This helps them to keep warm.
    Sprinkle with sugar and drizzle with fresh lemon juice. Roll up the pancake and serve.
