Chef’s Corner: Easy fluffy pancakes in less than 10 minutes πŸ₯ž

My homemade pancakes have been a wee bit of a hit on Instagram and I’ve had a few requests for the recipe. So ta-da! I’m putting it together for you.

These pancakes are quick to make and will create joy any time of day, whether at breakfast or for late night cravings! πŸ˜‹

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar 🍚
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • Sprinkle of salt
  • Heaped tablespoon of butter
  • 1 egg πŸ₯š
  • Splash πŸ’¦ of milk
  • Oil for frying (I use rapeseed or coconut πŸ₯₯)

Method

  1. Put a bit of oil into a pan and put on a medium/high heat. Get that oil nice and hotttt πŸ”₯
  2. Heat the butter in the microwave for 20 seconds until it’s mostly runny (and stirrable!). Leave it to one side to cool down.
  3. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl (flour, sugar, salt and baking powder).
  4. Make a little dip in the dry mixture and crack the egg into it. Slowly mix the egg into the flour.
  5. Now the butter has cooled down a bit, slowly stir this into the flour mixture bit by bit.
  6. Once this is all in the bowl and mixed you will likely need to add a splash of milk to get it to the right consistency — you want it stirrable with no lumps, but still pretty thick.
  7. Now turn the heat down on the pan to a low-medium heat and leave the mixture on the side for two minutes — the pan will cool down a bit and your mixture will thicken slightly.
  8. Now spoon the mixture into the pan. I usually make lumps of about 7cm in diameter. After a few minutes the pancake will start to bubble on top. At this point, flip carefully over with a spatula. The top should be browning.
  9. Do the other side for a few more minutes and you’re done!
  10. Stack and top with preferred goodies — my favs are Greek yoghurt, strawberries and a splash of maple 🍁 syrup.

Enjoy!
