Pancakes for breakfast are a real treat, especially in our family because we aren’t morning people.
We knock up a batch of our pancakes more as a tea-time treat, especially on rainy days.
This pancakes recipe makes delicious dense pancakes; almost crepe like. If you’re after fluffy pancakes, this pancakes recipe is not the one to try.
I love this pancakes recipe because it produces a texture that fairs well as finger food for younger children. (Less fluffy crumbs to clean up? Huzzah!)
Our favourite family pancakes recipe
Serves: 8 (we may as well make as many as we can as we can freeze the leftovers for another time).
Ingredients: 500g plain flour; 6 eggs; 2 tbsp oil; 1L milk; 2 pinches of salt
- Place all the ingredients except the milk in a large bowl and mix till blended.
- Slowly add milk and continue stirring. The texture of the pancake batter should be smooth and runny.
- Melt some oil or butter in a small pan. Get the pan really hot before pouring the batter in.
- Pour some batter into the pan and tilt the pan around until it is covered with the pancake batter.
- Once the batter is in the pan, turn the heat down to medium.
- Cook the pancake over a moderate heat until you can see the top of the pancake is just setting, then flip it over and cook the second side for about 30 seconds.
- Serve with your favourite topping. We love maple syrup. You could also try lemon and sugar, melted chocolate or some fruit.
