Now pour a little of the batter into the pan and immediately tilt the pan to spread the batter thinly and evenly over the base. Cook for 2 minutes or until the top is set and the base golden. Turn the pancake over with a spatula or if Cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until the base is golden. Transfer to a plate and interleave with greaseproof paper, keep warm.

Cook's tip:

If you are on a gluten free diet use oats which are guaranteed gluten free. Most are, but are often milled or processed in factories where flours and other grains containing flour are prepared.
