Here a basic recipe to get you started.
5 cups flour
2 tablespoons salt
4 tablespoons baking powder
Mix dry ingredients
Make round indent in dry ingredients
Add about two cups of water
Add about two cups of milk
Don't stir too much! This will keep it fluffy
Just want dry ingredients wet
Add about a centimetre of oil to your medium heated pan
Add large blob of batter to pan
Spread out batter in a circular pattern
using two forks
Wait about 5 minutes until it's golden brown on the bottom but turning it a few times so it cooks evenly and doesn't stick

Remove when golden brown on bottom
Let cool and then serve with topping of your choice. Great with jam, syrup, berries and hot tea
