  1. Combine flour and sugar in a large bowl, make a well in the centre and whisk in milk and egg until well combined. Use milk to adjust the consistency of the batter to produce the thickness of hotcake desired. (Thick batter produces thick hotcakes, thin batter produces thin hotcakes.) Rest batter for 5 minutes.
  2. Melt butter in a large frypan over medium heat and pour excess into the pancake mixture, briefly whisk to combine. Pour approximately 1/2 cup pancake mixture into frypan, cook for 2-3 minutes until lots of bubbles form on top. Flip hotcake and cook until puffed and set. Repeat with remaining batter.
  3. Serve hotcakes with your favourite yoghurt yoghurt and fresh fruit.
