EASY DOES IT: Pancakes


Since today is Pancake Tuesday, I thought I would share a delicious and easy pancake recipe that is fast to get on the table and better tasting than any convenience pre- packaged mix.


  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) milk
  • 50g butter, melted


Step 1: In a bowl mix flour and sugar.

Step 2: Beat in the egg and then milk at little at a time until batter is smooth and lump-free.

Step 3: In a hot pan or flat grill, brush butter over cooking surface and pour 1/4 cup measures for each pancake.pancakes-1536x1024

Step 4: When large bubbles form on the surface, flip over and cook until lightly golden on the other side.

Step 5: Serve and top it up any way you like it..
