This is a very simple recipe that makes fluffy pancakes.  The original recipe said to use plain flour.but I wasn't happy with the results.  Changing to self raising flour gave the pancakes the lift they needed

1 cup of self raising flour
1 cup of milk ( full cream or skim )
1 egg
knob of butter

Whisk the flour,  milk and egg in a medium bowl..
Heat a medium frypan to a medium / hot temperature..
Add the knob of butter and spread over the base with a spatula / lifter..
Pour approximately 1/2 a cup of batter to the centre of the frypan..
Move and tilt  the frypan around so that the batter spreads a little.
When bubbles form and burst in the batter, turn the pancake over and cook the other side
Serve with your choice of butter,  maple syrup,  jam,  icecream,  cream,  lemon,  sugar or a savoury topping.

Makes approximately 6 - 8 pancakes


  1. This is the same recipe I use, with a dessertspoon of sugar when we want sweet pancakes. It's so simple to remember and produces great pancakes :)

  2. Sounds great Wendy, I follow the "Easy pancake recipe" from the Taste website and it's great too! Pancakes are very economical, fill hungry bellies and are enjoyed by all. Love your posts.

    Kind regards

  3. We make pancakes almost every weekend. I do a double batch so easy school breakfasts. I cook apples with brown sugar and cinnamon on top. So YUMMY!.

  4. if you add a teaspoon of vinegar to the milk you will get even better results
