Step by Step Directions
Note: This is a summary of the instructions. The full ingredients and instructions are shown in the recipe card below.
Mixing the pancakes in the Thermomix is simple. Add all the ingredients and mix for a few seconds on speed 5. Between mixing, I like to scrape the bottom of the Thermomix bowl to dispel any lumps.
Heat a teaspoon of butter in the pan over medium to high heat. You only need a small amount to grease the bottom. It should be hot enough that the batter sizzles when it hits the pan.
Pour some batter into the hot pan, and when bubbles appear on the surface, flip it over so it's golden brown on both sides. It will take approximately 1 minute on each side. It's up to you how big you want your pancake.
Lemon & sugar - a sprinkle of caster sugar with a squeeze of lemon.
