Beat the eggs and gradually whisk in the milk.Gradually whisk the milk mixture into the flour mixture to prevent lumps from forming – the mixture should be smooth and runny. If it is lumpy, you can use a food processor or hand-mixer to get rid of the lumps; you can also pour it through a sieve.Add the oil in a thin stream – the batter will thicken slightly. Stir in the vanilla essence and let the batter rest for about an hour before you make the first pancakes.Heat a steel or cast iron pan. Pour in just enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan; tilt the pan to make sure that the batter spreads to the edges and then return the pan to the heat. Cook for about a minute and then turn the pancake over and cook for another minute. Keep the pancakes warm on a plate placed over a saucepan of hot water.Text and image source: Home magazineTo receive quick and convenient weekday recipes, join our Easy Weekday Meals mailing list, and for up-to-date trending food, restaurant and wine news subscribe to our Editor’s Weekly newsletter.
