The Best Pancake Recipe

My Favourite Pancake Recipe.


With Pancake Day (or Shrove Tuesday if you’re a stickler for tradition) heading our way next week, I thought it might be the perfect time to remind you of one of my favourite pancake recipe posts from the archives which is super easy to follow. We love an American style pancake in our house but you can follow the more traditional recipe below for more pancake flipping fun.


You will need…

For American Style pancakes

140g self-raising flour, sieved

200ml semi-skimmed milk

1 large egg

Pinch salt

1 tsp caster sugar

30g butter for frying


For British Style pancakes

120g plain flour

200ml milk

75ml water

2 large eggs

Pinch of salt

30g butter for frying



Here’s what to do…

  1. Whisk the flour, egg, salt and sugar together in a bowl adding the liquid slowly until thick and smooth then leave to stand for a few minutes.
  2. Heat a little of the butter in a large frying pan until melted, and add spoonfuls of the batter cooking for a few minutes each side until just golden… for larger thinner pancakes in more of a traditional Brit stylie, use one dollop of batter and spread around the whole pan.
  3. Serve immediately with anything from sugar, chocolate spread, jam and honey for the traditional pancakes or beef it up with berries, fruit, Greek yoghurt, and maple syrup or cream for the American style.
