Perfectly Simple Pancakes


Version 1

  • 1 Egg
  • 2 oz Plain Flour
  • 4 oz Milk

Version 2

  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 egg and 1 yolk
  • 300ml milk

Version 3

Same as version 1, but use self-raising flour to get a fluffier pancake.


  1. Make your batter.
  2. Heat up frying pan with a bit of oil and butter. Don’t let the butter burn.
  3. Pour batter into pan, covering about 1/3 of the surface area.
  4. Let batter spread out, tip the pan from side to side to get it moving.
  5. Bubbles should appear at the edges pretty quickly. When they reach the middle the pancake is done on that side.
  6. Lift and flip with a spatula or toss it in the pan if confidence is high.
  7. Cook the other side for about half the time of the first.
  8. Flip again to check it is done.
