American Pancakes


  • Ingredients:

    - 150g Plain flour

    - 3 tbsp Caster sugar

    - A pinch of Salt

    - 1 tsp Baking powder

    - ¼ tsp Bicarbonate of soda

    - 250ml Buttermilk

    - 1 Egg

    - A knob of butter

  • Toppings:

    - Natural Yoghurt

    - Blueberries

    - Maple Syrup


  1. In a big mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients bowl, then pour in the buttermilk and egg and mix very briefly with a fork or hand whisk – just barely combing the two, so the mix should still be a bit lumpy.
  3. Heat a heavy-based frying pan or skillet, then turn down the flame to its lowest setting and melt the butter. Pour or ladle the pancake mix into the pan to your desired pancake size, if cooking more than one at a time keep them well apart. When bubbles appear on the surface, gently turn over.
  4. To serve, stack the pancakes and top with blueberries, maple syrup, natural yoghurt, or your favourite choice of toppings.
