If you don't need all of it, don't worry. Step 5 Cover the mixture and allow it to rest for 30 minutes. If you need to wait for longer before using it, put it in the fridge Pancakes Step 6 Spray a non stick pancake pan with lo-cal oil Step 7 Heat over a medium heat then pour a ladle of batter into the centre of the pan. Tilt the pan so that you get a nice round shape, as thin as possible Step 8 Cook over a medium heat until the pancake slides easily and is nicely golden if you lift one corner Step 9 If you are feeling brave, toss the pancake. If not (and I've never managed) put a fish-slice under the pancake and turn it Step 10 Cook until the both sides are golden and continue making pancakes till all the batter is gone Savoury Step 11 To make simple savoury pancakes, chop the ham finely and fill pancakes with a mixture of ham, 30g of grated cheese and 1 tablespoon of creme fraiche. Place in a small baking dish Savoury Step 12 Top the pancakes with the remaining creme fraiche and sprinkle the cheese over it Step 13 Put the savoury pancakes in the oven at 160-170c and cook for 15 minutes until the top is golden brown Sweet Step 14 To make the sweet pancakes up, while they are warm, sprinkle them with caster sugar and squeeze lemon juice over, before rolling up and enjoying!
