Makes 12 thick pancakes

75g sugar
1 tsp baking powder
4 eggs
500g milk

Mix the dry ingredients together, whisk in the eggs. Then the milk, finally the melted butter. The mix is quite thick, if you like a thinner pancake, add more milk.  Get your frying pan hot and then pour in your pancake mix, cook for a couple minutes, then turn and cook until ready, serve as you like.  With a little lemon and sugar or with fresh fruit and ice cream.
