  • Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it's melted, add a small ladle of batter. Remember - these are American pancakes so will be very thick and stay in a small circle in the middle of the pan. Wait until the underside begins to brown and small bubbles form on the top of the pancake, then flip it over and cook for a minute or so, until golden brown.
