Servings: 12



  • An egg
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups self-raising flour

In a jug, put the egg, milk, and vanilla together and whisk them together. Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl and stir the sugar in. Proceed to making a well in the centre and pour the milk mixture. Whisk until just blended. Heat a large non-stick frying pan or griddle over medium heat. Spread some butter on top, or grease it. Using a scoop dispense ¼ cupful of mixture per pancake, cook 2 pancakes for 3 to 4 minutes or until you see bubbles on the surface. Flip and cook for another 3 minutes. Repeat this process with the remaining mixture, making sure to brush the pan with butter between batches. Serve with some maple or chocolate syrup.
