Pancakes are nice treat for breakfast, brunch or as a dessert. This is a super easy recipe to make and can be filled with sweet or savoury fillings.

Prep time:   5 minutes
Cook time:   4 minutes
Servings:   depends on pan size

125g plain white flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1.5 cups of milk
butter for pan

1. Sift dry ingredients
2. Make a well in the middle and add eggs and half the milk
3. Keep adding milk until a nice thin batter is made (you may not need all the milk).
4. Add butter to pan (I like to use a fair bit, say a heaped dessert spoon)
5. When butter is bubbling pour enough batter to cover the pan
6. Once bottom is brown, flip and cook the other side

Serve hot straight out of the pan. I like to serve my pancakes with a little whipped cream, fresh berries and maple syrup.

      Good easy recipe thanks! 125g of flour is equal to 1 cup...just in case you're like me and use measuring cups and not scales. I like to serve my pancakes with an easy fruit salad...chop up your available fresh fruit into bite size pieces and add a small splash of fresh orange juice, toss and serve next to pancakes.
