    Serves: 2 

    • 125g sieved plain flour
    • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 250ml beer
    • 30g butter, melted

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pour in the egg, beer and melted butter; stir with a whisk just until blended - a few lumps are okay.
    2. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Coat with vegetable oil. Spoon about 4 tablespoons (60ml) of batter onto the hot surface for each pancake. When bubbles appear on top of the pancakes, flip, and cook until browned on the other side.

    Wonderful. Though substituted the egg with 1tbsp chia seeds previously soaked in water. I alao added lime grounded rind for taste and used lees sugar.  -  08 Mar 2014


    They're even better than normal pancakes  -  09 May 2012


    Okay - don't like it with the beer. Even tried it topped with cheese. But add Cream Soda to it - WOW! Now I use soda for the liquid with all my pancakes; even a mix recipe. Makes it very light and fluffy. Great idea! Diet soda works too.  -  17 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
