Serves: 4 Preparation time: 5 mins Cooking time: 15 mins



  • 100g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • Filippo Berio Mild & Light Olive Oil for frying
  • Lemon juice and caster sugar to serve


  1. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl, add the eggs and beat well with a balloon whisk until smooth.
  2. Gradually add the milk, whisking all the time until a smooth batter is formed. Leave to stand for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan; add 2-3 tbsp of the batter to the pan, tilting it so that it coats the base of the pan evenly and thinly.
  4. Cook for 2 minutes or until the base is golden. Flip or turn over the pancake and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Make a further 7 pancakes in the same way. Serve with lemon juice and caster sugar.

Mild & Light In Colour Olive Oil

This Olive Oil is a healthy substitute for other cooking oils. With its high smoke point it is the ideal choice for frying, stir-frying and baking. The light bouquet allows the natural flavour of food to come through.
