Yum : Pancakes


We had pancakes for brunch at Cath’s on Sunday morning.  I’m not sure what her secret recipe is, but here is the one that I use:


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (250 ml) milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup (150 g) plain flour
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • Caster sugar to serve
  • Lemons
  • Bananas
  • Maple syrup


  • Place the egg, milk and salt in a bowl and whisk lightly
  • Whisk in flour, a little at a time, until the pancake batter has the consistency of thin custard
  • Allow to rest for 30 minutes
  • Strain the batter if there are any lumps
  • Heat a heavy based pan over medium heat
  • When hot, brush the base of the pan with melted butter, then pour in just enough to coat the bottom of the pan lightly
  • Allow to cook until golden, then turn over the other side
  • Repeat until the mixture is used up, adding more melted butter as needed
  • Serve with lemon and caster sugar, or bananas and maple syrup.
