1 cup unbleached, (preferably unenriched) all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 and 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1/2 tsp baking soda
Mix your flour and sugar in a bowl, and set it aside. In another bowl, mix your buttermilk, egg and oil and then add that to the flour, baking soda and sugar. Mix everything up until the lumps disappear.
Using a cup from a measuring kit, measure out 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake into a hot, lightly buttered skillet. Cook each pancake until the top is covered with bubbles and is able to be flipped over without breaking.
