Perfect Pancakes

Cookies in Use
Everyone loves pancakes. Well don't they ? We all adore pancakes and hardly a week goes by without a batch being mixed up in our little kitchen. Lilly aged three and a half, now knows that eggs, milk and flour mean batter and she can make a mean pancake mix for daddy to cook. Just remember to get the clarified butter bubbling in your skillet or pan and you'll soon get the hang of just covering the bottom quickly with batter and whipping up a plateful of perfect pancakes.

Really Good Pancakes     for 8 pancakes

1 egg and one egg yolk
About ½ pint milk
4oz plain flour
1 tlbsp melted butter
a small pinch of salt
clarified butter

Place a large mixing bowl on a damp cloth to stop it slipping and moving . Sift in the flour and salt into a. Whisk in the egg and egg yolk and mix in the milk, pouring it in a slow, constant stream. When it has achieved the consistency of thin cream, stop adding any more milk and whisk in the butter.
Brush a hot non-stick frying pan with clarified butter. Using a ladle add a little batter to the pan whilst gently twisting the pan to swirl the batter in a thin coating across the pan surface. Cook for about two minutes then flip over. Cook for a further minute until crisp and golden brown, transfer to a warm plate and serve.

Location, Location, Location - definitely NOT the one from the Telly !!!!
Conrad Hilton the eponymous founder of the hotel chain that still carries his surname gave sage advice as to his success, " Location, location, location ". Now that may still be true to building a world wide luxury hotel chain but the Internet is changing how we all do business. You can zoom in on to the map to see Alderney, where The Online Cookery School is based and where I am very lucky to live and work.

I dream up recipes and menus, then try them out in my kitchen before scaling them up for commercial use in my customers businesses. When I am not consulting I am slowly transcribing over twenty years of recipes and tips on to this blog and my website
