  1. Beat the eggs in a large bowl, then mix in the milk.
  2. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
  3. Lightly beat through the flour & baking powder to ensure there are no lumps. Add the flour slowly - the mixture should be thick & runny but not too gloopy.
  4. In a colander, rinse the whitebait and pick out any river stones or other debris.
  5. Drain, and mix into the egg mixture until well combined.
  6. Heat a frying pan on medium-high heat, and once heated, add the butter/olive oil.
  7. Drop in dessert-spoonfuls of the whitebait mixture, and cook until the pattie is set (& starts to go golden on the underside). The whitebait will normally have gone white at this stage.
  8. Turn, and cook on the other side until golden.
  9. Keep warm in the oven until ready to serve, in my house they get eaten as fast as they are cooked!
