  • 125 ml (½ c) flour

1 Sift the flour and cocoa into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Whisk the eggs, oil and milk together in a jug.

2 Gradually add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, whisking until it’s smooth and combined. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.

3 Grease a nonstick frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Pour 60 ml (¼ c) of the batter into the pan and swirl to cover the base. Cook for 2 minutes or until light golden. Turn. Cook for 1 minute. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
