Easy Pancake Recipe – Pancake Day

As we are fast approaching Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day we love pancakes and know they are super easy to make, but a few people are still not comfortable about making them. So we thought we would show you a super easy pancake recipe that requires no weighing and it takes minutes.

This recipe makes between 6-10 pancakes depending on the size of your frying pan.

What you need to make Pancakes

  1. A Mug or a Cup (to measure the flour and milk)
  2. Milk
  3. 2 Eggs
  4. Plain Flour
  5. Large Jug (to mix everything in)

How to Make Pancakes


  1. Pour plain flour into the mug / cup until almost full (as long as you use the same thing to measure the flour and milk you can use anything you like to measure)
  2. Tip flour from mug into large jug
  3. Pour milk into mug / cup until almost full
  4. Tip milk into jug with flour
  5. Whisk flour and milk in jug until
  6. Add the eggs one at a time and whisk into the mixture
  7. Put the mixture in the jug into the fridge and leave for about 30 minutes (this step is optional although helps develop gluten and small bubbles in the final pancakes)
  8. Put a knob of butter (or oil of choice) into a frying pan and put n the hob on a high heat.
  9. Pour just enough of the mixture into the frying pan to cover the base of the pan.
  10. Cook until the pancake moves freely in the pan and the top has changed texture from runny to sticky.
  11. Flip pancake and repeat.

DONE, turn out and serve with your topping of choice. Mum and I love Golden Syrup Reubs preferred chocolate spread.
