    About this recipe: In these traditional fluffy american pancakes I've swapped out the plain flour for self-raising flour for even thicker fluffy goodness.

    xocs Glamorgan, Wales, UK

    Serves: 5 

    • 135g self-raising flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 130ml milk
    • 1 large egg
    • 2 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil, plus extra for cooking

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a seperate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter or olive oil.
    2. Pour the milk mixture into the flor mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disapper with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.
    3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a meduim heat and add a knob of butter. When it's melted add a ladle of batter or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time. It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begind to bubble, then turn over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen abot 1cm thick.
    4. Repeat until all the batter is used up. You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven, but they taste best fresh out og the pan.
