Lazy weekend Pancakes

My family love pancakes as a real treat on the weekend, and even my 8 month old daughter likes to get in on the act now, with them cut up as finger food. They are wonderful with a drizzle of maple syrup and a dollop of cream. This has to be the easiest recipe to remember as it’s one of everything. I like to ring the changes with chopped banana, blueberries or raspberries stirred into the mix. This is a thick mix and makes a fluffy thick pancake, American style.

Lazy weekend Pancakes.

1 cup self raising flour ( I like wholemeal as it’s a little bit healthier)

1 cup milk

1 egg

1 pinch baking powder

1 pinch salt

Whisk quickly  together all the ingredients in a jug or bowl to make a thick batter and leave to rest for half an hour.

Heat a frying pan on a moderate to high heat and add a knob of butter until it foams. Using a ladle pour out some of the mix in the pan, I usually aim for 6-8cm diameter pancakes, and a ladle usually does 2. Wait until large bubbles start to form on the top of the pancake and flip over to brown on both sides.

Serve in a stack with maple syrup, and any extras you desire.

  1. My wife and I love making pancakes! We often have them on a cosy Friday movie night. Excellent treat food. Love them with bananas, fresh cream as well as lemon, and chocolate – not necessarily all at the same time 🙂
