Ingredients

  • 100g self-rising flour (about ½ cup and 1 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)
  • ½ cup low-fat milk

    How to make it   28 minutes

    Make the batter. Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the egg and vanilla extract, if using. Pour in a little of the milk, then beat the egg lightly until it is mixed with the milk and vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour mixture and pour in the remaining milk a little at a time. Before all the milk is added and while the mixture is quite thick, beat well to remove all the lumps, then gradually beat in the remaining milk to make a smooth batter.

    Cook the pancake. Preheat the broiler to the hottest setting. Melt the butter in a frying pan that can safely be used under the broiler (cover a wooden handle with foil). Swirl the butter around the pan, then pour in the batter and cook over a medium heat until the pancake is golden underneath. The batter should have risen and almost set on top. The surface will break into little bubbles.

    Finish under the broiler. Slide the frying pan under the broiler and cook for 1 minute. Scatter the strawberries evenly over the pancake. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar, then broil for 3 minutes or until the sugar has melted. Cut into four wedges, decorate with mint, if you like, and serve immediately.
