Step 1
Preheat the barbecue, with the hotplate in, for direct cooking. 

While the barbecue is preheating, whisk the milk, egg and vanilla together in a jug until just combined.

Step 2
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda and sugar. Make a well in the centre of the dry mixture and add the milk mixture and melted butter. Whisk until well combined.

Step 3
Once the barbecue is preheated, turn all burners to medium. 

Melt a little extra butter on the hotplate to grease. 

Step 4
For each pancake, spoon a ladle of the mixture on to the hotplate. Make sure a gap is left between each pancake.

Step 5
Close the lid and cook the pancakes for 1 to 2 minutes. Open the lid and flip the pancakes. Cook for a further minute.
