A delicious way to serve pancakes

- Sift the flour and add the salt. Mix in the eggs, then the milk and water mixture. Add the butter just before using the batter. Pour the batter into a squeezy dressing bottle or a jug.Heat a 20cm diameter non-stick frying pan until hot, drizzle a little oil over the centre and wipe it around with a piece of kitchen paper.
- Squeeze or drizzle a little batter in a circle around and then drizzle the mixture all over the middle of the pan to form a lacy pancake.
- When cooked, flip over and cook for a further minute.
- Separate the pancakes with layers of greaseproof paper.
- Serve the lacy pancakes with the berries, a dollop of cream and a dusting of icing sugar.
