  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1 cup of milk (semi skimmed or full fat*)
  • 1 egg (free range works best!)
  • Optinal* A tiny knob of butter if your pan isn't non-stick.


  • A whisk or wooden spoon
  • A mixing bowl
  • A pancake pan or crèpe pan
  • A sieve
  • 2 cups of equal sizes
  • A spatula


  1. Pour your flour into the first cup till it is even with the top then sieve it into the mixing bowl and poke a hole in the middle.

  2. Pour your milk into the second cup till it is even with the top then pour it into the hole in the middle, it will go out of the hole a lot but that helps it to mix in just a little bit easier

  3. Crack the egg into the middle, making sure that none of the egg shell has been dropped into the pancake batter, then wash your hands.

  4. Whisk or mix it all together until it is has the consistency of a thin cream, then it is time to turn on the stove to a low heat.

  5. This is the time where you will have to put in your little knob of butter if your pan isn't non stick, you may want to add some butter if your pan is a little old too.

  6. Pour approximately one fifth of batter into your pancake pan then swirl it around till it covers the whole surface area of your pan by moving the pan around,

  7. After about 30 seconds flip the pancake over if you can or just take your spatula and use that to flip it over, then wait another 30 seconds, repeat this process until your pancake is golden brown on both sides, be careful not to overcook! Repeat this with all your pancakes, then its time for toppings!

  8. Tip: you can leave you batter in the fridge for one day if you want to use it again tomorrow!!!
