Pancake Recipe – Ingredients

  • 1 cup of self raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons of caster sugar (optional, if you prefer sweet pancakes over more savoury)
  • 1 cup of milk (at room temperature is best)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1 egg (at room temperature is best)
  • Butter

For a healthier recipe, you can substitute white four for wholemeal flour, or use half coconut flour (which is full of fibre) or other flours. Of course, you can reduce the amount of sugar you use too.

Pancake Recipe – Method

  • Combine flour, sugar, milk, vanilla essence and egg into a mixing bowl. Do not over mix for best results.
  • In a large frying pan, heat until hot. If a few drops of water sizzle right away, your pan is ready! Lightly grease with butter.
  • Using a ladle or measuring cup (1/4 cup is good), pour the mixture into the pan, holding them down close to the pan.
  • After a minute or two you should notice bubbles and the pancake edges drying. It's time to quickly but gently flip them over! A flat, wide spatula is best. Cook until golden.

Enjoy these delicious pancakes while you can – with maple syrup, butter, jam, honey, berries, lemon juice, sugar or whatever your tastebuds fancy!

  1. I used wholemeal self raising flour, left out the sugar, & added a mashed banana. I made them for my 11 month old & they were a big hit!
