Servings: 4

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp sodium bicarbonate baking soda
  • 115 g (1 cup) plain flour
  • ½ tsp grated nutmeg or to taste

  • Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  • Pour in the milk and break in the two eggs.
  • Use a whisk to mix the ingredients till they are combined into a thick batter.
  • Be careful not to over mix them and it is ok if you have a some lumps in the batter.
  • Heat a frying pan on low medium heat and melt a bit of butter in it.
  • When the butter starts sizzling add in about half a ladle of the batter mixture.
  • Cook until the top of the pancake is full of bubbles and the bottom is golden.
  • Then turn the pancakes over and cook till golden too.
  • Keep pancakes warm in oven till you have finished frying the rest.

Butter can burn very quickly so keep and eye on this when frying pancakes.[br]After frying the first batch of pancakes the frying pan might get too hot, which would burn the pancakes. I normally take the frying pan off the heat for about 30 seconds to cool it down before starting the next batch. If I don’t use up all the batter I store it in the fridge and use it the next day. You might need to add in a tbsp of milk and a pinch of baking powder. I some times add in cinnamon, all spice or ginger bread spice instead.

  1. There’s nothing like a stack of pancakes to make the world a better place 🙂 Love the look and sound of these, Bintu, and I could follow-up that banana sandwich with a stack of these 🙂

  2. What a lovely set of utensils and the pancakes look pretty good too. I so want pancakes after seeing so many posts, I am definitely going to be making some for breakfast.

  3. 5 stars
    Great stuff Bintu, pancakes looks superb! I too have my staple recipe for basic pancakes it’s time to dig it out and make some myself!

  4. Love the new stainless steel utensils. Perfect for measuring and weighing out all those ingredients for your delicious pancakes. Although I bet you can do it by eye by now. I have to try those coconut and cardamom ones. GG

    1. They are so nice. My kitchen does look much nicer with these Andrew James utensils in it.

  5. I love pancakes but have never consider eating them with pumpkins. It sounds delicious though! I have Andrew James’ pestle and mortar and bought one for my mum too. Very solid and is perfect for making pestos or crushing spices into a powder. Especially our beloved cardamom pods 😉
