As it happens - pancake day!

Good evening all, 

Today, in Ireland and the UK, is pancake day. From what I can gather, the continentals don't especially eat pancakes today. The big pancake day for the Belgians is 2 February - le chandeleur. 
I'm going to try this recipe right now, letting the batter settle for an hour or so before making them up. I am going to stuff some of them with ricotta and spinach, cover with passata and a sprinkling of parmesan and bake in a hot oven for about 25 minutes. The remainder will be smothered in Nutella, sugar and lemon and whatever else takes my fancy. 
Pancake batter, from Saturday's Irish TImes. If the ricotta and spinach above doesn't grab your fancy, check out what Domini Kemp does with hers. 

50g melted butter
2 eggs
200ml milk
100g flour

Melt the butter in a frying pan. In a bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients with a little salt and add the melted butter. In the same pan, pour enough batter into the hot pan to cover it - fine is the key here. Cook for one minute on one side, flip it and cook for about 45 seconds on the other or until golden. 

I doubled this recipe and got 14 pancakes.
