Pancakes Recipe

I’ve been making this recipe for years, so am really just putting it here on the blog so I can easily refer to it. Currently it is sketched down the margin as a modification to the buttermilk pancakes recipe in a Donna Hay cookbook. Hopefully, after this I can just look it up online!

Ingredients

  • 90g unsalted butter
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cup whole milk

Method

  1. Melt the butter (e.g. 30s in the microwave) and set aside.
  2. Sift the flour, sugar and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Make a well in the middle and crack the egg into it.
  4. Gradually stir in half of the milk to make a thick paste.
  5. Stir in the melted butter, the gradually stir in the remainder of the milk until the batter is smooth.
  6. Place a flat frying pan over medium heat to get warm, e.g. when butter sizzles.
  7. Use a 1/4 cup measure to pour batter onto frying pan. When bubbles appear, gently flip each pancake and continue cooking until browned on both sides.
  8. Serve with maple syrup (or whatever your favourite topping is).

Makes about a dozen pancakes.
