This pancake recipe is the one I used all the way through my childhood and still do. They are always ready to be rolled up with all your favourite fillings.


  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon


  • STEP 1
    Whisk together the flour, milk, eggs, salt and cinnamon until smooth.
  • STEP 2
    You can leave the batter in the fridge from this stage to be used in 2 days time. Or You can heat up a frying-pan with a little nob of butter if wanted but I usually don't.
  • STEP 3
    Pour in 1 ladle of the mix and spread it around the pan by tilting it. Cook for 2 mins on either side or until golden. Serve with your favourite fillings and enjoy!
