Sift flour, salt or sugar (for savoury or sweet base). Add milk and mix until smooth. Finally add beaten egg and melted butter.

Here are some interesting ingredients to add to the batter: • Bacon, onion or chives. • Sweet corn kernels, chilli, coriander and lemon grass or lime zest. • Zucchini, parmesan or pecorino cheese. • Basil, tomatoes and rocket leaves. • Spinach, feta and olives. • Red or yellow peppers, olives, preserved lemons, or ground spices such as turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and paprika. • Preserved ginger and citrus peels. • Chocolate chips and candied fruits.
Simply select the desired ingredients listed, add to the basic batter, mix thoroughly. Follow the cooking procedure as given above.
