    I use a fab Jamie Oliver recipe, I was usless before these

    You need to heat your pan with a little oil at gas 9, I always do this before I start

    3 Eggs
    115g Plain flour
    285ml milk
    dash of salt
    throw egss and flour in and whisk add salt the add milk and whisk really well
    transfer to a jug and leave to stand for 1/2 hour.

    You need to leave oven at gas 9, pour batter between tins and back in oven for 15 mins with out looking at them ( they will sink) if you want them a little crispier turn down to gas 4 for further 5/10 mins

    they should go huge

    good luck xx

    Make up pancake mix, get a cake tin (one of those for fairy cake sized ones) and put a bit of butter in each bit. put the cake tin in teh oven untill teh butter melts, one butter has melted spoon in some mixture into each bit (not sure how much) then put into oven to cook. Not sure how long though :lol:

    I only managed this for the 1st time myself the other day.

    The trick is equal parts:

    I use a ramekin as a measure and use
    1 x ramekin flour
    1 x ramekin milk
    3 x eggs(fill the ramekin)

    Salt and pepper to taste

    Beef suet as your fat....a bit in the bottom of each cup or in the bottom of your cake tin (dependent on what style you're going for). Into the over the heat through.....once it's melted and bubbling whip it out, stick in the mix as quick as possible and straight back in the oven. Try not to let either the fat or the oven cool at all.

    In the oven at 200 and cook until golden all over and risen. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR while they're in!
    Hope they work.....best of luck!

    100g plain flour
    pinch of salt
    1 egg
    1/2 pt of milk (or use half milk, half water)

    Put a little bit of fat (butter/veg oil/dripping) into each dent of a fairy cake tray and put in the oven on
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica][SIZE=-1]230ºC, 450ºF, Gas Mark 8 for about 10 minutes, so the fat is really hot.

    Mix all the ingredients together getting as much air as possible in and leave to stand for about 10-15 mins.

    Pour in batter in the tray, the batter should make a fizzley noise when it goes into the oil (this means the oil is hot enough - it's a good thing!) and put in the oven on top shelf for about 25 minutes. Don't open the oven until they're done or they won't rise properly.

    Self raising is what I use (it's a cheat and makes it a little more stodgy but it WILL rise if you use it....if only a little! :rofl:)

    Enjoy with jam!!!!! :happydance::cloud9:

    Yep will still taste the same.....self raising just has an agent in it which will cause it to rise. but it can make it a little cakey...but taste exactly the same.

    I will admit I could not tell you my recipe for the life of me, I just throw it all in the bowl, mix it up and it magically is just the right quantity for the amount of people I'm cooking for... I'm useless with recipes, I just guess everything!

    But yes, self raising will do, but they won't be light and crispy, a bit doughy and soft... but it's all the same once it's smothered in tasty gravy!

    my recipe is
    4 oz flour
    1/2 pint of milk
    4 eggs
    salt and pepper (optional)

    flour in bowl add in eggs,salt and pepper, then gradually whisk in the milk, leave to stand for 30-60 minutes

    Heat some oil in the tin for a good 10-15 minutes on a high heat, then pour in the mix and leave to cook-tbh i never look at the time i just look through the glass on the oven and when its done i take it out-maybe 20-30 minutes for a big one and 10-15 for little individual ones!

    the eggs make them rise spectaculalry!!

    i had to give my mate the recipe months ago as her boys had eaten mine here and wouldnt touch hers after that!! :rofl:
