    1. Before you go, tip the flour, sugar and cinnamon into a bowl and mix thoroughly to distribute the cinnamon evenly. Transfer to a rigid container and seal.

    2. To make a batch of pancakes, tip the yogurt into a bowl or jug and add the egg and milk, then mix with a fork. Rinse the yogurt pot and dry well. Measure a scoop of dry mix into a bowl, make a well in the centre, and add the yogurt mixture. Beat together to make a smooth batter.

    3. Heat a frying pan with a knob of butter. Spoon tablespoons of mixture, a little apart, into the pan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface, about 2-3 mins. Flip them over and cook until firm to the touch, then transfer to a plate. Add a little more butter and continue to cook the pancakes until all the batter is used up. Serve with toppings of your choice.

    Save yourself the time and the effort- these pancakes weren’t edible. I prepared the dry mix before hand at home, as suggested. Then while on the camping trip carefully added the remaining ingredients, to make pancakes. It produced a thick, gluey mixture that looked like porridge and tasted disgusting. Far too chewy (chewy pancakes!) and just not palatable. A big waste of time and effort, that generated a lot of washing up and no food, a real disappointment for a campers breakfast.

    Quickest and best pancake mix I have ever made without buttermilk. I love this as I will usually have all the ingredients at home anyway. I topped with yogurt and granola.

    These were nice! Made them 2 times now for my 2-year old (who is a picky eater) and he really liked them. The 2nd time I substituted the self-raising flour with whole wheat flour (and added baking powder) to make them somewhat more healthy. These came out allright and were even more fluffy :-)

    Made this for a Sunday brunch, and whilst nice I personally would increase the cinnamon as did not really taste it. It would also be helpful to have a weight of dry ingredients available as I had no small yogurt pots and so had to estimate, resulting in rather thick pancakes!! Served them with a rhubarb and raspberry compote which was really tasty.

    Just add more milk til you're happy with the consistency
