Classic Pancakes


Pancakes are my absolute favourite breakfast pick.

This recipe is a complete no-brainer. You could either make a stack of large ones or several tiny ones, whatever suits you. And you’ll find that you always have the ingredients at home!

(Makes 5-6 large pancakes)

You’ll need:

1 cup all-purpose flour (maida)

1 teaspoon salt

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 tablespoon brown sugar (Even white sugar works, however I prefer brown sugar because of the sweetness of the maple syrup later on.)

1 cup milk

1 egg

1 tablespoon softened butter


1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

2. Add the milk, egg and butter and beat lightly until the batter becomes smooth.

3. Heat a non-stick frying pan and melt one teaspoon of butter. Pour 3-4 tablespoons of the pancake batter onto the pan. Flip the pancake until both sides are brown.

4. Repeat step 3 until the batter gets over.

5. Stack up your pancakes and pour maple syrup all over. (Or you could put the syrup in a separate bowl in case you like to dip every bite into it!)

The fun part about making pancakes is that you can have it whichever way you like! The options vary from maple syrup (my personal favourite!) to chocolate syrup or even any fruit compote! I savoured mine with a fresh raspberry compote! You could even add a bowl of chocolate chips or fresh blueberries to the mixture.
