Recipe: American Style Pancakes

IMG_3104This recipe is the classic for American Style pancakes, which are more luxurious than the thin, wrap around, British idea of pancakes. I love having them with Maple Syrup and Ice Cream 🙂


  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 1 Heaped Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Level Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tblsp Caster Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 30g Butter or Margarine
  • 300ml Milk


Combine all ingredients in a plastic jug.
Using an Electric Hand Blender, blitz until smooth.
Add more flour if too runny, more milk if too thick.

Heat a non-stick frying pan to a medium heat. pour in some mixture, size the pancake as you wish… When bubbles form on the upper side (20 seconds ish), flip the pancake over and cook for about 20 seconds on the other side – you’ll soon get the hang of it…

Serve with maple syrup / ice cream / crispy bacon / anything you can think of!

This is NOT an LCHF recipe lol
