Why buy pancake mix when it’s so easy to make your own? You can’t really go wrong with these American-style pancakes. I’ve suggested some toppings but you can create your own – think of crunchy nuts, hot stewed fruits and sweet syrups, or even just sugar and citrus fruit. Kids will love getting involved and helping you to top them.

Method

  1. For the pancakes, sift the flour and sugar into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the eggs, milk and the 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Whisk to combine the ingredients. (Don’t be alarmed if there are a few little lumps, as it doesn’t matter.)
  2. In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt about a teaspoon of the butter until foaming. Working in batches, pour about 60 ml batter into the pan at a time – it should spread out to be around 10–12 cm in diameter. Cook the pancake until bubbles form and pop on the top, about 2–3 minutes. Flip the pancake over and cook the other side for another minute or two.
  3. Remove the pancake from the pan and transfer it to a warm plate (or store in an oven heated to low), while you cook the remaining pancakes.
  4. Wipe the pan with paper towel and repeat with the remaining butter and batter, until all the pancakes are cooked.
  5. Serve a stack of 3 pancakes for each person with the topping of your choice.
