These are the easiest pancakes to make – you don't even need scales to weigh your ingredients. All you need is a cup or a mug. As long as you use the same cup for measuring both the flour and the milk, you'll be laughing! If you use self-raising flour the pancakes will be more American in style, lovely and fluffy and thick. Plain flour will give you thinner ones, more like European crêpes. Great with a sprinkling of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice (very old school!), or drizzled with maple syrup and served with crispy bacon. Try throwing a handful of blueberries into the batter mix if making American-style pancakes. I also love eating them with Rachel's coconut yoghurt, which is delicious. I've given you a recipe here for making your own similar tropical-flavoured yoghurt. It actually gets better if you let it stand in the fridge for a few hours, as the coconut will soften.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
