Pancakes -

How often do you eat pancakes for breakfast? Have you thought about other times and places you can eat pancakes? Pancakes shouldn’t be a breakfast food only, pancakes are fantastic because they are so versatile and portable. You can eat them for breakfast, morning tea, afternoon tea or dessert.

I like mine with jam and cream, other people I know like them plain or with just butter or margarine or maple syrup. There is no right or wrong way to eat these little beauties. You can make them and freeze them for school lunch boxes or you can eat them all straight away.

I know a lot of people that buy packets of hot cakes from the store to eat for a quick breakfast and I always wonder why they don’t make pancakes the night before instead. This quick recipe is so much easier than going to the shop and a lot cheaper.

This is a very quick to make recipe that will make at least a dozen small sized pancakes like the ones in the picture.


Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 10 minutes

Serves: 4



  • 1 cup SR flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • margarine to grease the fry pan



  1. Place the flour, milk, egg, sugar and salt in a jug and whisk to combine until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Heat a frying pan to medium heat and melt a small amount of margarine.
  3. Place 1-2 tablespoons of mixture in the frying pan for each pancake. Cook the first side for approx 2 minutes until bubbles start to appear on the surface. Flip the pancake and cook for another minute until the pancake is cooked through.
  4. Keep the pancakes warm while you repeat the cooking process for the remainder of the batter.
