Basic Pancake Recipe


Recipe Info

  • Yield : 12
  • Prep Time : 30m
  • Cook Time : 20m
  • Ready In : 50m


  • 120g Plain Flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 20g butter, plus extra for frying
  • To Serve
  • 2 lemons
  • honey


Step 1

Put the flour in a bowl with a pinch of salt and make a well in the middle.

Step 2

Beat the eggs in another bowl (or jug) and mix with the milk and 200ml water. Pour into the well in the flour and stir together to make a smooth batter.

Step 3

Decant into a jug for easy pouring later. Rest for about 30 minutes. Melt 20g butter and add to the batter, then mix well.

Step 4

Heat some butter in a frying pan (preferably non-stick or cast iron) and pour a small amount of the batter into the pan, tilting to cover the base with a thin layer. Pour any excess back into the jug. Cook until bubbles start to appear and then toss, or turn using a palette knife. Cook on the other side for less than a minute, then remove to a warm plate while you cook the rest of the batter.

Step 5

Serve each pancake with a little sugar scattered over and a squeeze of lemon juice.
