Step 1: Combine and sift the flour, baking powder (optional) and salt into a mixing bowl.
Step 2: Beat the egg in a separate mixing bowl then add the olive oil and milk and mix together well, then add mixture to the bowl with the flour and whisk to combine the wet and dry ingredients to form a smooth batter. If you prefer a thinner pancake, add a little more milk to the batter.
Step 3: Heat a medium sized frying pan and add a tablespoonful of butter to melt over a medium heat.
Step 4: Once the butter has melted, use a ladle and drop a dollop of the batter into the centre of the pan such that it will spread out into a disc as it cooks.
Step 5: When the edges of the disc start to dry and bubbles appear, flip the pancake to cook the other side and cook till done.
Step 6: Serve hot with some butter and honey drizzled overtop.
Step 7: You can also add some chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
