  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp sodium bicarbonate baking soda
  • 115 g (1 cup) plain flour
  • ½ tsp grated nutmeg or to taste
  • Pinch of salt
  • 160 ml (¾ cup) milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Butter for frying


  • Add baking powder and sodium bicarbonate into a mixing bowl
  • Then add in flour, nutmeg and a pinch of salt
  • Next pour in the milk and break in the two eggs
  • Use a whisk (or fork) to mix the ingredients till they are combined into a thick batter.
  • Careful not to over mix and it is ok if you have a some lumps in the batter
  • Heat a frying pan on low medium heat and melt a small knob 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.
  • Serve with various toppings and enjoy.


Butter can burn very quickly so keep and eye on this when frying pancakes.
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.[br] Feel free to vary and adjust spices to your taste.
