American Pancakes

Delicious or No ?

Fluffy, light american pancakes. Quick and easy to make and they taste delicious.

The advantage of the pancakes is that they are much lighter than a cooked breakfast (which serves more as brunch than breakfast) and they’re really quick to make, ready in just 10 minutes. They’re also made with ingredients I usually have in the house so I can decide to make them on a whim. I love them served with fresh fruit and drizzled with maple syrup. I like to make my pancakes quite small and dainty, but you can make them bigger if that’s your preference. 


  • 200g Self Raising Flour
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 250ml Milk (I use skimmed but any is fine)
  • 2 Eggs


  1. Sift the self raising flour (200g) into a large bowl
  2. Add the caster sugar (50g)
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs (2 eggs)
  4. Add the eggs and milk (250ml) into the flour and sugar and whisk until you have a smooth batter.
  5. Heat a large frying pan to a medium heat and add the pancake mix.
  6. Cook until bubbles are starting to form on the top and then flip and cook for another minute until the pancakes are golden brown.

Tips:  I don’t grease the pan as I use a non-stick pan and so it isn’t necessary. However you may wish to use a little butter or vegetable oil to stop the pancake sticking.
