These easy pancakes are so versatile and quick to make with this foolproof recipe taking just 7 minutes. Keep it classic with a sprinkling of sugar and lemon or alternatively you top with your favourite sweet or savoury flavour combinations. 

Method

  1. Mix the flour, salt, eggs and milk to form a batter. Ideally leave to stand for 30 minutes.

    • 120g Plain White Flour
    • Pinch of Salt
    • 2 Egg(s) (Free Range)
    • 300ml Milk (Whole)
  2. Grease an 18cm/7 inch pan with butter lightly. Spoon 2 tablespoon of batter in a heated pan for each pancake and swirl the pan so that the batter covers the pan. Cook for 1 minute each side.

  3. Transfer to a plate and keep warm while you cook the remaining pancakes.

  4. Serve warm sprinkled with your choice of butter, sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Enjoy!

    • 25g Butter (Unsalted)
    • 1 Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
    • 2 tbsp Billington's Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar

    Easy recipe, but delicious! I was in a good mood today but since I don't bake often, I didn't have things like self raising flour, turns out I had everything I needed and I can now enjoy the rest of my day after an amazing breakfast 😊
