Recipe: American Pancakes

Today I come to you with a recipe, and a yummy one at that! I am totally kicking myself for not taking more photos when J and I made these American Pancakes a few weeks ago, I didn’t even think about blogging about them at the time! Nonetheless, here is how you can make these beauties…


  • 135g of self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of caster sugar
  • 130ml of milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespons of melted butter


  1. First up, you want to sieve the flour and baking powder into the sugar. Sieving will ensure you end up with super fluffy pancakes!
  2. In a seperate bowl, mix together the butter, milk, and egg.
  3. Next, mix the wet and dry mixtures together, and beat until a smooth batter is formed.
  4. Finally, on a heated pan, melt a bit of butter and spoon some of the mixture on – the mixture will be super thick, but it’s meant to be!

You can serve the pancakes however you want, Jamie and I went sweet with lots of Nutella and some fresh strawberries for the benefit of the doubt! They were so delicious and I know we’re going to be whipping up another batch soon!
