Basic pancakes

Serves Makes 16

Prep Time 5 min

Cooking Time 15 min


  • 80g self-raising flour
  • 40g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • ½tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 250ml buttermilk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Cooking oil spray


  1. Sift the flours and bicarbonate of soda into a medium mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk and egg to the mixture and stir until a batter forms.
  2. Spray a medium heavy-based, non-stick frying pan with oil and set over a medium heat. Drop heaped tablespoonfuls of the batter into the pan, 2–3cm apart. Cook for 1–2 min until small bubbles appear on the surface. Flip and cook for a further 1 min or until lightly golden.
  3. Repeat with the remaining batter, stacking the cooked pancakes on to a plate and spraying the pan with more oil between batches, if needed. Serve immediately or cool and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

TIP To freeze, cool the pancakes, then transfer to a freezer bag, seal and freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw, then heat to serve.
