Pancakes and chocolate sauce
These pancakes are a really simple treat for the kids at the weekend

110g plain flour, sifted

Pinch of salt

2 eggs

200ml low fat milk

75ml water

50g butter

To serve

Aldi chocolate sauce

Sieve the flour and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it. Whisk the eggs using a fork mixing the flour into the eggs as you whisk. Gradually the milk and water, still whisking (don't worry about any lumps as they will eventually disappear as you whisk). When all the milk and water has been added, use a spatula to scrape any leftover bits of flour from around the edge of the bowl and finally whisk once more until you get a nice smooth batter.

Melt half butter in a pan. Spoon 2 tbsp of it into the batter and whisk it in, then use the rest to grease the pan. If you think the pan is too dry just add a smidge more butter. Make sure the pan is really hot to start with and then turn the pan down to medium.

Use a ladle to drop the batter into the pan and swirl it around the pan from side to side - we like the thicker style pancakes, but if you prefer thin, just add smaller amounts of the batter (you'll get more out of the batter mix too). It will only take a minute or so for one side to become golden pan. Use a fish slice or if you’re feeling brave flip the pancake over! The other side will only need half a minute so. 

Stack the pancakes on a plate and keep them warm in the oven while you make more. 

To serve, the kids love chocolate sauce, and as this was their treat, that's what I provided
