Perfect Pancakes

Hello guys,

My favourite time of day is breakfast and I loveeee going out for breakfast or brunch as the food is always so much better than what I have in my cupboard. Sometimes I do like to try and impress or mix things up a bit, still keeping it simple. My life is about keeping things simple. This recipe for pancakes is so easy, but creates the perfect fluffy American pancakes.

Whatever your pancake topping preference is, these pancakes are sure to be a hit either as a solo adventure, with friends or with fussy children. They just feel so indulgent and like something that I didn’t make.

* 3 large eggs
* 115g plain flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
*140ml milk


1. Separate your eggs and egg whites. Mix the egg whites using an electric whisk to get firm peaks
– you know this has happened if you the mixture doesn’t move around in the bowl and the egg whites stand up if you put a dab on your finger. The ultimate test is if you are confident they are firm to lift the bowl upside down and if it’s true, they won’t fall out (GOOD LUCK!)

2. Meanwhile mix egg yolks, flour, baking powder and milk to a non-lumpy consistency.

3. When egg whites are firm, combine with egg yolk mixture. Ensuring not to over mix because you will then lose all your air and they will not be perfection then.

3. Heat up a frying pan with oil or frying spray until hot. Reduce the temperature and transfer a few spoonfuls to the pan. Depending on how big you want your pancakes, add more or less mixture.

4. Cook for a few minutes on either side until golden brown. I can never master the flip, just a spatula girl myself.

5. Once you have your stack – choose your topping. In my picture I’ve gone for golden syrup and a mixture of fruits. Other favourite toppings are chocolate spread, lemon and sugar or freshly whipped cream with fruit.

Let me know how you get on and what your topping preference is.
