Pancakes are great – cheap, easy, and you can fill them with pretty much anything. Everyone loves them, yet no one eats them all year apart from Pancake Day!

I ate mine with sliced banana, golden syrup and vanilla ice cream, but you could also have them with a savoury filling. Some great filling ideas are:

  • Blueberries and strawberries with whipped cream or mascarpone
  • Sliced banana with nutella and ice cream
  • Mushrooms, ham and cheese
  • Chicken and leeks in a creamy sauce
  • Bacon and brie
  • Blue cheese and leeks
  • Garlic mushrooms with cream cheese

Serves: six people.

Cost per person: £0.06 (price based on Tesco Value ingredients).

Ingredients:

  • 55g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 100ml milk, mixed with 40ml water
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Method

1) Sift the flour with the salt into a large mixing bowl.

4) Lubricate the pan with the oil then get it really hot, before turning it down to a medium heat. Spoon about 2tbsp of batter into the pan, spreading it around with a spatula. After around 30 seconds the underneath should be golden; flip it over and cook for just a few seconds on the other side.
