Pancakes (makes approx. 15-20 depending on size)

225g 8 oz Self-raising flour

55g 2 oz sugar

1 tsp heaped baking powder

5 tbsp sun flower oil

1 egg

250 mls milk approx. (depending on thickness desired)


Mix all wet ingredients into a large jug, then sieve all dry ingredients into the wet and mix well to make a smooth batter.   Leave to thicken approximately 10 minutes.  Pre heat the griddle / pan and lightly rub with a little sunflower oil.  Using a large tablespoon pour spoonfuls around the surface of the griddle or simmering plate.  Cook one side till bubbles appear then flip over and cook the other.

Keep warn in a clean tea towel and serve with maple syrup, honey or your favourite topping (I love fruit compote – see here for recipe – and Greek yoghurt).
