If you’re looking for a quick and simple recipe, with minimal ingredients you’ve come to the right place! This has been made time and time again in our household for a speedy breakfast, a filling snack or as a tasty dessert.

Ingredients (makes 5)
  • 4oz plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 250ml milk
  • Oil for cooking

  • Add the flour to mixing bowl and create a well in the centre then tip in the egg.
  • Beat the mixture continously with a whisk and gradually pour in the milk until smooth.
  • Heat a frying pan with a small amount of oil (approx 2tbsp) and tip some of the mixture into the centre, rotating the pan to coat the base thinly.
  • Cook for around one minute and then flip the pancake over.
  • Once lightly golden in colour slide the pancake onto a plate.
  • Serve with scrummy toppings!

What do you have on your pancakes?



  1. my kids love pancakes and this makes it so easy to make them from scratch

  2. I love pancakes, so do my kids, especially with golden syrup and ice cream!

  3. I miss pancakes!

  4. What sorts of toppings do you suggest? My husband likes lemon juice, but I'm a bit naughtier with maple syrup. I bet some kind of berry compote would be lovely too.

  5. Haven't had pancakes for ages.

  6. We usually have them for breakfast on a Saturday at the request of our 5 year old daughter

  7. Not long until Shrove Tuesday!
