Fluffy American Pancakes

Tues, 2nd of February

Any excuse to eat a pancake is a good one, so this Pancake Tuesday why not start the day off with these thick and fluffy American-style pancakes? A perfect breakfast treat, pile them high and serve with delicious bacon, a syrup of your choice or butter. You will need a heavy-based pan for these—a cast-iron pan works well if you have one.

  • 2 cups (240g) plain flour

  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs (beaten)

  1. 1. Place the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl, stir and make a well in the centre.
  2. 2. In a jug, add the eggs to the milk and whisk to combine.
  3. 3. Slowly pour the milk and egg mixture in with the dry ingredients.
  4. 4. Whisk or stir together but don’t worry if there are a few lumps.
  5. 5. Heat the pan until very hot and then reduce to medium.
  6. 6. Place a little butter on the pan and add 2 large spoonfuls of batter to form one pancake.
  7. 7. When the top of the pancake starts to pop with small air bubbles turn the pancake over and cook for a minute more.
  8. 8. You can keep the pancakes warm in a medium oven or serve immediately from the pan. Serve with your favourite syrup or honey and butter. Enjoy!
