Perfect Pancake Pursuit

I am on the pursuit for the perfect pancake recipe... Pursuit is a bit of an overkill but I couldn't come up with another P verb... [Stacking of pancakes while cooking is a must!]

Pancakes for breakfast, on the weekend, has become a bit of a family ritual of late. I am still to find the ultimate recipe though. Most times I try new ones from the net: the criteria for the recipes need to be 2 things: simple ingrediants with a simple method. Who wants to cook anything if it is too complicated?

Basic Pancake Recipe From


  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 25g butter, melted


  1. Whisk milk, egg and vanilla together in a jug. Sift flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Stir in sugar. Make a well in centre. Add milk mixture. Whisk until just combined.
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Brush pan with butter. Using 1/4 cup mixture per pancake, cook 2 pancakes for 3 to 4 minutes or until bubbles appear on surface. Turn and cook for 3 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining mixture, brushing pan with butter between batches. Serve.
