Mum’s Special Pancake Recipe


No one should ever really need an excuse to eat pancakes, but if you are in need of one then here it is – IT’S PANCAKE DAY! A day where eating pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner is deemed completely acceptable (my idea of heaven).

Ever since I can remember, pancake day has always been a day where my mum would have a tower of pancakes at the table ready for the whole family to scoff down within a matter of seconds.

My mum is no baker but she certainly can make the ultimate pancakes. I thought considering the fact that they are this good, it’s only fair that I share her recipe with you all. (However, getting a recipe written down proved to be quite difficult due to the fact that she does not like to measure anything!)

A little different from the standard pancakes on the market – these pancakes already have the sugar incorporated into the pancake batter meaning they taste scrumptious and you don’t need to bother with fillings if you don’t want to.

The following ingredients are enough to make around 8 pancakes (depending on the size).

You will need –Pancake Ingredients

  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 55g sugar
  • Frying pan with a little oil
  • Toppings of your choice

Step 1: Pour all the ingredients into a bowl adding the milk slowly whilst mixing. Start off by stirring with a wooden spoon and once the mixture has loosened, continue to mix with a whisk (using a electric mixer does make life easier here and gets rid of any lumps). If the mixture is too stiff to beat, add a further splash of milk. The batter should be quite runny once the ingredients are fully incorporated.


Step 2: Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and then wipe with oiled kitchen paper.


Step 3: Using a ladle, pour a fair amount of the batter into the middle and swirl the pan to get a thin layer. After about 30 secs, the bottom of the pancake should turn golden, at this moment flip the pancake over. Leave for 30 secs and then serve/stack on a plate.


Step 4: Repeat with the rest of the batter, remembering to wipe the pan with oiled kitchen paper before making each pancake.

Step 5: Lather with golden syrup, honey, lemon and sugar or Nutella and dig in…it’s best eaten warm.

Now I’m off to scoff up some pancakes coated in Nutella….I think a pancake coma is on it’s way!
