Perfect Pancakes

After reading Pancakes, Pancakes by Eric Carle last night, the girls requested if they could have pancakes for breakfast the next day. Of course I said yes, didn’t think anything of it and went to bed.

So this morning, we had some lovely pancakes for breakfast which tasted and looked exactly like those from a certain famous fast food joint but made by yours truly instead. 😉

I was everybody’s best friend at breakfast, I had rave reviews from the girls and they wanted more. So I made another batch of pancakes for them to enjoy during their morning tea at school. It’s that easy to make. Trust me.

Another pocket friendly recipe. 😆


  • 100g self rising flour
  • 1 cup fresh milk
  • 1/4 cup of castor sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp fine salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbs cooking oil


  • Mix flour, sugar & salt with a whisk.
  • Slowly add the milk and whisk. Stop when there are no more lumps.
  • Add egg and vanilla and oil. Whisk lightly just enough to incorporate into the batter.
  • Let it stand for 10mins and heat up a non stick pan on medium.
  • Pour a ladleful of batter into the pan.
  • Flip the pancakes when you see bubbles forming.


  • Keep an eye on it for a few more seconds and remove from pan.

If you want a lighter looking finish, don’t let it stay too long in the pan.


Try it. Love to hear how it’s works for you. 🙂
