Super Easy Pancake Recipe in Lifestyle


Pancake Tuesday is upon us again, so why not take some time to make your own delicious pancakes from scratch? 



  • 4oz/110g Plain Flour (this amounts to 4 heaped serving spoons)
  • 1/2 pint / 280ml Milk
  • 1 large egg
  • A pinch of Sugar
  • Vegetable Oil (for cooking)


1. Add a a few drops of vegetable oil to a frying pan and put it on a medium/high heat.

2. Sift the flour into a medium mixing bowl and make a well in the middle.

3. Crack the egg into the well you made in the flour.

4. Add the milk.

5. Add a pinch of sugar.

6. Whisk thoroughly until the mixture has a smooth and creamy texture.

7. Put one ladle of the batter into the heated frying pan and tip the pan so that the mixture coats the pan and forms a circular shape.

8. The pancake should start to cook immediately. As it cooks the edges should start to lift. At this point use a spatula to gently loosen the edges and flip the pancake. Cook it on the other side until it is brown on both sides.

9. Put the finished pancake on a plate and repeat steps 7 & 8 until there is no batter left.

10. Enjoy with some of the great toppings we suggest below!

  • And whatever else you fancy!
