Traditional English Pancake Recipe

Pancake Day aka Shrove Tuesday  in the UK and Ireland, is the day for eating traditional pancakes which are thin and crepe-like;  the true pancake of this day.
Making pancakes is so quick, easy and cheap, 
but make sure you prepare plenty, they are always very popular.   
225g (8 oz) plain 
Pinch salt
2 large, fresh eggs
600ml (2½) cups milk
2 tsp melted butter plus extra melted butter for cooking
How to Make It
Makes 12 pancakes
Sieve the flour into a large baking bowl, add the salt. 
Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the eggs. 
Beat well until smooth and lump free.
Add half the milk and the 2 tsp of butter, beat well. 
Add the remaining milk and stir.
Leave the batter to rest for 15 minutes.
Lightly grease a pancake pan or frying pan with a little melted butter. 
Heat until very hot and add a ladleful of batter so it evenly and thinly coats the base of the pan. 
Cook until set and lightly golden.
Using a spatula or if you are really brave try tossing the pancake in the air,  and cook on the other side for approx 30 seconds.
Slip the pancake from the pan onto a warm plate.
And Serve HOT
To Serve
On Pancake Day, pancakes are traditionally eaten sprinkled with sugar and a squeeze of lemon.
 However, serve as you like with jam, Golden Syrup, honey, chocolate spread; 
whatever takes your fancy.
