    Serves: 1

    • 65g plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

    1. Combine milk and vinegar or lemon juice and let sit while you prepare other ingredients.
    2. In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt. Mix well. Make a well in the centre and add the butter or oil, egg white and milk mixture. Stir till just combined.
    3. Heat a large frying pan over medium high heat. When you flick water on the pan and it immediately sizzles, the pan is ready. Add a bit of oil or butter for frying, then ladle in the batter, making three pancakes.
    4. Cook pancakes till bubbles appear on the surface and edges start to look dry, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook till golden, about 1 to 2 minutes more.
    5. Serve straightaway with your favourite toppings!


    You can change the flour used to make these pancakes a bit healthier. I have used the same weight in spelt flour and it has worked a treat. You can do 50/50 plain and wholemeal, as well. Another nice combination is half plain flour, half fine polenta (cornmeal). Enjoy!
