American Style Pancakes

American style pancakes


  •  250g Self Raising Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 heaped teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 375g Milk (weigh your Milk for accuracy)
  • 1 large Egg, beaten
  • 25g melted Butter & extra for cooking
  • Sunflower Oil for cooking

Based on Mr Paul Hollywood’s Blueberry Pancakes recipe, but i used any Blueberries i had on making wine. And would heartily recommend you do the same. Wine or pancakes, now there’s a question…

How to

Mix the Flour, Salt & Baking Powder in a bowl.

In a jug or bowl beat the Egg, add the Milk.

Melt your butter.

Pour the Egg & Milk onto the Flour mixture, add the Butter & whisk until everything is combined into a lovely batter.

Don’t worry about lumps as they will cook out.

Heat a little Sunflower Oil & some (plenty of) butter over a medium heat.

Add 1-2 tablepoons of batter into the pan – see photograph (3 pancakes at a time is easier)

Cook for 3 minutes, flip over and cook for another 3 minutes.

Eat as soon as they are cooked, ignoring anyone banging their knife & fork on the table and asking you to hurry up.

Maple Syrup. Golden Syrup. Bacon. Honey. Decisions decisions.
