Simple Pancake Recipe.

You know when you get a craving for something particular and can’t get rid of it? That’s what happened me – all throughout January, I have had the biggest craving for pancakes with lemon and sugar. Simple but very effective.


I have a small kitchen here in our Dublin apartment so need to set myself a limit on how many pots, pans, baking tins etc I can have. This means I don’t have a large flat frying pan, never mind a crepe maker. But, what am I do to? I can’t have fat, fluffy pancakes with lemon and sugar!

Thankfully, my parents have a large frying pan so my mum and I made pancakes for our tea when I was last at home. I seriously can’t wait until Shrove Tuesday to do it all over again. I’ve popped the recipe for simple pancakes below – I’ll share a savoury one come February too though as I think they make such a great, simply evening tea.


right, you need:

100g plain flour

pinch of sea salt

1 large egg

300ml whole milk

2tbsp caster sugar

So simple, bang everything into a bowl and whisk until you have a smooth batter.

Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes.

Get a flat frying pan and heat it on the hob – you want it hot hot hot!

Melt some unsalted butter to grease the pan slightly and pour your batter in and you’re away.

Definitely a really simple tea time treat 🙂
