Woke up this morning and thought hmmmmm pancakes. Googled American pancakes and threw these together with Nutella and golden syrup over the top. 

1) sieve 100g self raising flour into a bowl, add a dessert spoon of caster sugar and a dessert spoon of oats.

2) beat in 1 egg, pouring in small amounts of milk til the mix is a gloopy consistency.

3) wipe a frying pan with oil and heat, but not too hot. Ladle in the batter, and flip when little bubbles form all over.

Makes 4, serve with gooey sugary things! 


When I was little my dad used to make the best ever pancakes. They’re big and thin and tasty. The recipe is also barely a recipe!

In a bowl whisk 1 cup milk, 1 egg and just under 1 cup of plain flour. The mixture should be quite liquidy. Butter a frying pan and put on a medium heat. Transfer the mixture a ladle at a time and flip once til golden.

Serve with Nutella, banana and syrup. Sod healthy pancakes today. Be naughty and enjoy it.

  I whipped a batch of these up this morning in 15 mins. The leftover batter is in the fridge ready for tomorrow morning 😍

Whisk in a bowl:

2 small-medium mashed ripe bananas 

1 cup self raising flour

1/3 cup oats

1 dessert spoon chia seeds 

1 cup milk

1 egg 

I wipe a teeny bit of butter over the frying pan to stop them sticking. Flip over when you start to see little holes forming on top of the batter.

Serve up with blueberries, syrup, honey, Nutella, whatever you fancy. 

Happy Tuesday!

Why just have a yoghurt for breakfast when you can put it in pancakes?! It is the weekend after all. I would have garnished these with fresh strawberries… but I polished off my punnet too quickly! Still just as tasty with blueberries.

1) in a bowl whisk up 1 cup plain flour, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 pot of activia strawberry yoghurt, 1/3 cup of milk.

2) wipe a frying pan with sunflower or veg oil using some kitchen roll – otherwise the pancakes just swim in oil.

3) use a ladle to pour the mixture into the frying pan. Flip after 15 secs once the batter looks cooked.

These would be great plated up with strawberries and cream… note to self: don’t eat all the strawberries when planning to make strawberry pancakes.

I probably eat pancakes way too much so I’m having to make them as healthy as possible. These ones have no added salt or sugar. I added vanilla soya yoghurt for a bit of flavour and texture, so the only sugar in them is the sugar in the yoghurt. If you’d prefer absolutely no sugar then leave out the yoghurt.

1) in a bowl whisk: 1 cup semi skimmed milk, 1 egg, 1 dessert spoon of vanilla yoghurt.

2) once whisked, add 1 cup plain flour and 1 tsp baking powder. Whisk together to form a batter.

3) put a little oil in a small frying pan, add 3/4 of a ladle to the pan. Flip after 30-40 secs, transfer to a plate when they’re done or golden brown.

Serve with whatever toppings you fancy, I went for juicy blueberries. 

Last 2 weeks have been bonkers at work and I’ve finally got a day off today. Ergo I tried my hand at blueberry pancakes based on this Lakeland recipe.

1) mix wet ingredients: 1 egg, 1 cup milk, 2 big dollops of natural yog, 1 tbsp of melted butter.

2) separate bowl, mix dry ingredients: 1 cup wholemeal flour, 2 tbsp sugar (I missed out salt cuz I didn’t have any, can you believe that?! Shop later…)

3) combine wet and dry, whisk. I folded in frozen blueberries but I reckon they’d work better with fresh and just adding them once you’ve cooked the pancakes.

4) pop on a plate once done and guzzle like you’re in ‘murica!

Yes, I did nosh the entire plateful in the pic. It’s been a long week…
