DIRECTIONS

  • Sieve the flour and salt into a basin, and make a well in the center.
  • Beat the egg slightly and mix with the milk.
  • Pour the egg-milk mixture into the flour gradually, and beat to make a smooth batter.
  • Grease a 5-inch frying pan with a little butter.
  • Heat the pan until the fat shows a faint blue haze.
  • Pour in enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan.
  • Allow the pancake to brown on the underside; turn over with a spatula and brown the second side slightly.
  • Remove to greaseproof paper.
  • Make the rest of the pancakes the same way.
  • When the pancakes are cold you can spread all except one with strawberry jam and whipped cream.
  • Keep enough whipped cream to decorate the top one.
  • Pile the pancakes one on top of another to form a"layer cake" with the plain pancake on top.
  • Sprinkle with grated chocolate and decorate with halved glacé cherries and whipped cream.
