"I prefer my pancakes almost a cm in thickness, less flour or more milk will give you a runny mix if you prefer, I make these all the time if I’m honest, quick and easy family pleaser. Oo I sometimes have them with bacon between two as a sandwich 😉Feedback would be much appreciated. Hope you enjoy."
Easy 👌
10 min
4 min
10 min


3 tbsp
egg (Large)
125 g
Self raising flour
125 ml
1 tbsp
butter (allow to slightly cool after melting)
maple syrup (for serving)


whisk, bowl, sieve, Table spoon , nonstick pan, offset spatula

  • Step 1/9

    • 3 tbsp sugar
    • 1 egg (Large)
    • whisk
    • bowl

    Beat the egg, slowly adding all of the sugar until the sugar and egg are one.

  • Step 2/9

    • 125 g Self raising flour
    • sieve

    Sift the flour into the egg and sugar mix, it should be really thick by now but don’t panic, all part of the plan.

  • Step 3/9

    • 125 ml milk
    • 1 tbsp butter (allow to slightly cool after melting)
    • Table spoon

    Slowly add half the milk then add the melted/softened butter and the rest of the milk. continue to whisk until the batter thins a bit, you should see the strokes of the whisk but the batter should still run. You can add less of more milk depending on how thick you prefer your pancakes.

  • Step 4/9

    • nonstick pan

    Allow the batter to rest for 5-10 minutes, towards the end of the rest, put a non stick pan on a low- medium heat.

  • Step 5/9

    Once pan is warm pour mix into the pan to the desired size, it should sizzle but quietly, this is important as these are easy to burn.

  • Step 6/9

    Be sure to keep the pans heat low- medium, you should start to see the bubbles rise in the pancake and if you shake the pan they shouldn’t wobble. Flip time.

  • Step 7/9

    • offset spatula

    Once flipped you can watch the mix in the side of the pancake firm up, each should take about 3-4 minutes that being 2 minutes roughly either side. Stack in a rack and continue until the mix is finished

  • Step 8/9

    • maple syrup (for serving)

    Add the maple syrup and enjoy, can also add yoghourts, jams or fruits, whatever floats your boat.

  • Step 9/9

    The most important part of all. Enjoy 👌🏽

  • Enjoy your meal!
