Easy American Pancakes

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 servings



  • Sift the self raising flour (200g) into a large bowl
  • Add the caster sugar (50g)
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs (2 eggs)
  • Add the eggs and milk (250ml) into the flour and sugar and whisk until you have a smooth batter - it's very important when attempting pancake art that there are no lumps, as this will clog the bottle. If there are any lumps pass the batter through a sieve to remove them.
  • Heat a large frying pan to a medium heat and add the pancake mix (in whatever shape takes your fancy).
  • Cook until bubbles are starting to form on the top and then flip and cook for another minute until the pancakes are golden brown.


NOTE - I don't grease the pan as I use a non-stick pan and so it isn't necessary. However you may wish to use a little butter or vegetable oil to stop the pancake sticking - for pancake art I'd recommend vegetable oil as butter is likely to burn and spoil your image.
