Recipe: American Pancakes

Whilst I make all sorts of pancakes for the family – my favourite are good old plain American style pancakes. This is a great recipe and really easy. Serve with golden syrup / maple syrup / blueberry syrup or chocolate spread!


200g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg

300ml milk

25g butter


Mix the dry flour, salt and baking powder and whisk in the milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla until smooth.

Ladle small round blobs into a hot, non stick pan and cook for about 1 minute until the pancake is bubbling. Flip and cook on the other side for a few seconds until browned. You can keep them warm in the oven while you make more.
