So I have told you how great my mother’s pancakes are or if you don’t know check out my post Saturday Morning Pancakes, so I thought I would share with all of you her recipe. They are simple and easy and the batter can be made the night before so you just have to cook them the next morning. They taste nice if they have been sitting and relaxing overnight too. They taste great with any toppings sweet or savoury, so if you like bacon on your pancakes this recipe works well for that too. These pancakes can be made small or large. Medium size pancakes, I think, are the best.
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 2 eggs
- 30 g melted butter
- ½ cup caster sugar
- 1-2 cups milk
- Pinch of salt
- Melt butter in microwave for a few seconds
- In a bowl mix self-rising flour, caster sugar and pinch of salt together
- In a small bowl, crack your eggs in them and give them a quick whisk
- In your dry mixture add your whisked eggs and butter and bring together
- Once this is starting to come together start adding the milk, start with half a cup at a time and continue until the mixture is holding together and isn’t to think but not to runny
- Heat a pan for your pancakes and either spray with canola oil or add a bit of butter to the pan to stop the pancakes from sticking
- Using a ladle, pour in a ladle full of batter into the greased pan
- Wait until bubble start to form on the top and sides of the pancake and then flip over
- Another minute or 2 for the other side and then flip it out of the pan and onto a plate or wire rack to stop them from going soggy
- Enjoy hot or cold
If you have any left after breakfast place in a container or on a plate with tight cling film and place in the fridge if it is hot or in your pantry.
Can be served with any topping; butter, lemon, cinnamon, Nutella, banana, strawberries, blueberries, bacon.
Also note that blueberries can be added to the batter before pouring into pan to cook.
I suggest using the caster sugar in the batter, but if you don’t want to use half a cup you can use less, or you can instead substitute in maple syrup, golden syrup, honey, vanilla extract, or cinnamon, just to give the pancakes a taste or they will be bland.
I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do.
