    3. Using the same frying pan, add 1 tbsp of butter and melt before pouring in some of the batter mix.

    5. Slide the pancake onto a plate and add some of the garlic and onion before adding 2 tbsp of grated cheese.
    6. Fold the pancake in half and return it to the pan for another minute or two to melt the cheese.
    7. Repeat until you have used all the batter.
