WHAT a great way to beat the back to school blues pups! Grab a mate and get cooking!
You will need a grown-up to help
2oz plain flour, a pinch of salt, 1 large egg, 5fl oz of milk, For the cheese sauce - 1oz of butter, 1oz of plain flour, 8fl oz of milk, 3½ oz of grated cheese. To top -3 spring onions, 3oz of good quality smoked ham
How to make
Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Whisk together the egg and milk in another bowl then, slowly pouring the liquid into the dry ingredients, whisk together until the batter is smooth. Set aside.
For the cheese sauce, ask a grown-up to melt the butter in a small pan, then whisk in the flour. Cook for one minute, then gradually add the milk whisking continuously. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to a simmer for one minute until the sauce is thick and smooth. Stir in half of the cheese and season with black pepper.
*Don't use the hob yourself!
To make the pancakes, your grown-up will need to heat a pan until very hot, drizzle in a small amount of oil and tip the pan to swirl the oil around. Ladle in about two tablespoons of batter mix and immediately tilt the pan from side to side to get a thin, even layer of batter to cover the base of the pan. Cook for around 30 seconds until the underside is golden then flip or turn with a pallet knife.
As soon as the pancake is turned scatter over some ham, spring onions, with some cheese sauce then top with a scattering of the remaining cheese. Once you've topped the pancake the underside will be done. Fold the pancake in half then slip it out of the pan onto a warmed serving plate and keep warm under some foil while you make the remaining pancakes. Yummy, what a treat!
