Hi my name is Jo Wheatley, some of you may know me as the winner of 2011 Great British Bake off. Since finishing GBBO I have started up a Home bakery school from my house in Essex (the class dates are listed in masterclasses) and I've now written 2 books 'A passion for baking' on general release & 'Home Baking' available exclusively in Sainsburys and where I also write my monthly column for their lovely foodie magazine. I would love to hear from you with any questions you may have and I promise to answer if I can! (for a quicker response Facebook or Twitter me) Love JoX

I find this really simple method the easiest way to make pancakes, just use a cup (any sort of cup, tea,coffee,mug as long as you use the same for the flour and milk) of plain flour, a cup of milk and about 3 eggs about 20g melted butter a pinch of salt, whisk them all together, I cook mine on the cooler AGA hotplate with a reusable mat, but they come out just as fab in a large non-stick frying pan brush with a little light oil, ladle some of the batter into the pan or onto the mat, wait until the pancake has a dry appearance then flip over and cook until golden.
For the filling a favourite of my family for dessert
Spread a tablespoon of nutella over the pancake, heat a little knob of butter in a frying pan
Spoon a scoop of Vanilla ice-cream into the centre, fold into a parcel and pop into the frying pan to seal the parcel, place on a plate throw a few flaked almonds into the pan and toast the sprinkle over the pancake serve immediately
