It's pancake day, here's a healthy start to the day

It’s Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day as it’s better known. Pancakes are fun and a delicious treat for any day of the week. .
1 egg,
1/2 pint milk,
4 oz whole wheat flour
Mix these all together and you will have perfect batter! You can do all the mixing in a plastic jug. Just start by measuring your milk, then whisk in the egg. Then put the jug on your weighing scales and measure out your flour, a bit at a time. Mix until there are no lumps left then you have the perfect batter mix!
To cook perfect pancakes, heat a frying pan up to full heat, pour in a tablespoon of olive oil and then reduce the temperature slightly. Pour the batter mix into the hot pan to make half-size pancakes. Once the liquid has disappeared, flip it over! Then wait for about 30seconds to 1 minute. Serve with honey and banana slices or blueberries. Oh my these are nice.
You can make this healthier by changing the type of milk or the type of flour. You could use soya milk or half buckwheat flour/half gluten free flour, or a whole-meal flour variety. Happy Pancake Day!
