Who doesn’t LOVE pancakes?! I have used many different recipes over the years that claim to create the perfect pancake but this one adapted from one of Jamie Oliver’s is the easiest and most effective I’ve ever followed. If you are a fan of the fluffy pancake as opposed to the crepe then this recipe is perfect for you! These are a great treat for any occasion and are perfect for this bank holiday weekend. You can always half this recipe if you are not making these for a group of people.


6 Large Free Range Eggs

230g Plain Flour (I used gluten free flour)

2 Heaped Teaspoons Baking Powder

280ml Milk

2 Pinches Salt

This recipe will make 9 LARGE pancakes

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 10ish mins

Difficulty: Easy (if I can do it so can you)

  1. Separate the egg whites from the yolks and place the yolks in separate bowls.
  2. Whisk the eggs and the salt until the mixture has formed stiff peaks (I used a hand mixer to save time and my arms LOL) but if you don’t have a hand mixer then it will take longer.
  3. In another bowl mix together the egg yolks, baking powder, milk and sifted flour, beat together until mixed well.
  4. FOLD the egg white into the mixture, being careful not to lose too much air. This is what makes the pancakes fluffy.

If you are used to the normal pancake mixture this will look A LOT whiter than your usual mixture but TRUST me its worth it.


Pre- heat your non stick frying pan I used a few sprays of my coconut spray just to grease the pan for the first one, spoon the mixture into the non-stick frying pan on a MEDIUM heat after a few minutes you will notice little bubbles popping to the surface and this means its about time to flip the pancake.

I placed mine in a stack to keep them warm before serving, because this is such a simple recipe you can really get creative with your toppings.

Things I learnt while making this recipe that I wanted to share with you guys so you didn’t make the same mistakes. Sharing is caring! Once you have flipped the pancake in the pan once don’t press down on it with your spatula this will make it less fluffy. Don’t be scared that its rising a little bit in the pan.

Keep an eye on them once they start bubbling it really does mean they are ready for flipping, I had a burnt one because I made this mistake.

This is by far the best pancake recipe that I have followed and would HIGLY recommend it, Let me know what your favourite topping is to have on your pancakes

Please TAG ME in your creations, would LOVE to see what toppings you choose.

    I can’t wait to try making these! I was just wondering what toppings you would recommend? Is the sauce you use a jam? Or some sort of compote? It looks delicious.
