Pancake Recipe

As pancake day is tomorrow, I thought I would share my favourite pancake recipe.  I love pancakes.  They’re something I enjoy all year round, not just on Shrove Tuesday.  My husband doesn’t like them, so it means when I make them I pretty much get the whole lot to myself!  Obviously now Oliver is around he will enjoy one too, but I still get plenty to myself.

I enjoy both american style pancakes and traditional pancakes  Generally if making american style I would top with golden syrup or maple syrup.  Although they are also great with a raspberry coulis or bacon!  When I make traditional pancakes I usually stick with the classic, lemon and sugar.  However I do really love them with Nutella, and with a bit of banana added in they are just delicious!  I’ve never tried a savoury pancake, I’m a bit scared to try them, to me they seem like they should be sweet.  I have given Oliver one with cream cheese, which he seemed to enjoy.


  • 110g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml milk and 75ml water (combined)
  • 2tbsp melted butter


  1. Place the flour in a bowl and make a well
  2. Crack the eggs in and whisk together
  3. Continue whisking whilst gradually adding the milk and water combination
  4. Add the melted butter and whisk this in
  5. Melt a small amount of butter in the frying pan
  6. Add about a ladle full of batter to the pan and swirl until the bottom is coated.
  7. Cook for 30secs – 1 minute either side until lightly browned and serve

I have added a pinnable recipe card if you wanted to save the recipe.

What’s your favourite pancake topping?
