Worksheet 14 Recipe for Pancakes

SKYPE class preparation 
You can learn lots of new food and cooking vocabulary by following recipes.  Recipes are instructions so we use the imperative ( notice there is no person at the beginning of the sentences).

How  to make delicious pancakes


  • 200g plain flour
  • 400ml milk
  • 2 large eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • Method

    Put the flour in a large bowl with a pinch of salt, make a well in the centre, pour in the milk and eggs, then whisk until you have a smooth batter. Add the vegetable oil and whisk again.
    Prepare the Frying Pan
    Take a large frying pan and carefully wipe the inside of the pan with some kitchen roll dipped in vegetable oil.
    Heat the Oil
    Heat the pan over a medium heat for about a minute, then add just under a ladleful of batter to the pan and immediately start swirling it around to get a nice even layer.
    Time to Cook
    Cook the pancake for about 30 seconds then use a palette knife or spatula to lift the pancake carefully and check that it’s golden-brown before turning over. Cook the other side for around 30 seconds and your delicious pancake is ready!
    You can make your pancakes sweet or savoury. 
    Look at some delicious suggestions.  ( I like mine with sugar and lemon!)

    Now prepare to tell me how to make a traditional dish from your country? You can use pictures or speak to me while you are preparing it!
