Fluffy pancakes

Serves: 2
Time: 20 minutes plus 10 minutes cooking
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients

135g (1 cup + 2 tbsp) Self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
175ml milk
1 egg
2 tbsp butter, melted

There’s no need to buy pancake mix for pancake day as these fluffy pancakes are so easy to make and something kids can enjoy helping with. We’ve made crepe type pancakes a few times, but neither of my kids seem to like them very much so I thought we’d try the American style fluffy pancakes instead to see if they liked them more. I think we’re on to a winner – Hannah demolished hers and them moved on to mine, which means I don’t think we need to wait until next year’s Shrove Tuesday before trying them again!

Method

Add the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl

Get your kids to weigh out the flour (135g), baking powder (1 tsp), salt and caster sugar (2 tbsp) and add them to a mixing bowl.

Add the wet ingredients

In a measuring jug, measure out the milk. Use the ml setting of your scale if you have digital scales. Then add the egg and get your kids to give it a good whisk. Melt the butter (2 tbsp) and add it to the milk mixture.

Make a well in the centre of your flour and slowly add the milk mixture. Whisk it together until you have a nice smooth batter.

 

Cook the fluffy pancakes

Heat some oil or butter in a frying pan then ladle a spoon of the pancake batter into the pan. As these pancakes are quite small, you may be able to fit a few pancakes in the pan at a time.

Gently heat them on one side for a minute or two until they start to bubble.



 

Turn them over, or get your kids to if they are bit older and can be trusted next to the cooker. Once you flip them, cook them again on the other side until they cooked through.

If you want to serve them in one go, pop the cooked ones in the oven to keep warm (although they are best served straight from the pan!)

Serve and enjoy!
