if you dont know how to make a good pancake here’s how:

This recipe will make about 12 pancakes!


  • a flat bottomed frying pan,
  • a sieve,
  • weighing scales
  • a mixing bowl or jug
  • and a big spoon or two.


  • 140g/5oz plain flour
  • 200ml/7fl oz whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 25g/1oz unsalted butter, melted, plus a little extra for the pan


  1. Sift the flour with a pinch of salt into a medium-sized bowl and make a well in the middle. Mix the milk and 100ml water together. Break the eggs into the well and start whisking slowly. Add the milk and water in a steady stream, whisking constantly and gradually incorporating the flour as you do so.
  2. Whisk until the batter is smooth and all the flour has been incorporated.  Set the batter aside to  rest for 30 minutes, then whisk the melted butter into the batter.
  3. Heat a pan over a medium heat and add a little melted butter. Using a ladle, pour roughly 2 tbsp of batter into the pan and swirl it around so the bottom of the pan is evenly coated. You want to  use just enough batter to make a delicate, lacy pancake.
  4. Cook the pancake for about 45 seconds on one side until golden. Then, using a fish slice or if your feeling confident toss the pancake to flip the pancake over and cook the other side for about 30 seconds until it freckles.
  5. Slide the pancake out of the pan and either serve immediately or stack on a plate with baking parchment in between. Continue until all the batter is used up.


garnish with traditional maple syrup or nutella or maybe you will incorporate some fruit, unleash your creativity!
