3. Put a teaspoon of butter in a frying pan and melt over a medium-high heat.

4. Once the pan is hot and the butter is melted, use a ladle to add around 2 tablespoons of batter to the pan. Tip the pan from side to side until the base is evenly covered with batter. Cook for 30 seconds or until the underside is lightly golden, then use a palette knife to flip the pancake. Cook for a further 15-30 seconds, then slide onto a plate.
