Who doesn’t Love Pancakes?

And this has to be the simplest and best pancake recipe there is. Good old Jamie Oliver does it again.

I like these a) because they’re easy and b) they are super light and fluffy. I also like the stack effect with the drizzle of your choice dripping over the edges. You can pretend you’re in an American diner, serve them with ‘caaaarffee’ (coffee – poor attempt at a joke) …. but they’re delicious whatever you serve them with!

After the last week of freezing cold weather, today the sun is shining and there’s definitely a feeling of spring in the air. It’s also half term here in the UK and although the kids have been at home for some time now, without having the home schooling timetable, it still feels like a break. Therefore, our pancakes can be made at leisure without rushing off to school today.

So enjoy your pancakes today, Happy Mardi Gras (love the idea of Fat Tuesday…and fat Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday)


  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 115g of Plain Flour
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of baking powder (don’t go over this – or you’ll have a funny taste)
  • 140 ml milk
  • Butter for frying


  • Whisk together the eggs, flour and baking powder
  • Whilst still whisking, add in the milk slowly until you have a lovely creamy batter
  • Add a small amount of butter to a small hot frying pan
  • Once the butter is sizzling, add a ladle of the mixture – you can make the pancakes as small or as big as you like, but I like to stack them up so opt for smaller saucer sized rounds.
  • After a minute or two – flip then pancakes over. They should be nice and golden brown each side
  • Stack up a few and drizzle with maple syrup, honey, cream, jam – whatever you fancy!
  • Enjoy!
