Easy Pancake Recipe

Do you love pancakes like we do? Well, keep reading and we will give you one of the easiest, and nicest fluffy pancake recipes we use.

Over the years we have tried a wide variety of so-called easy pancake and pikelet recipes, only to find that many of them were dead flops! We were promised fluffy pancakes, easy pancakes, and even healthy (ie. no egg, sugar or flour) pancakes, but in the end, we have come back to a favourite few which we find are easy to make and taste great.

Whether your ‘thing’ is lemon and sugar, honey, maple syrup, ice cream or jam, this easy pancake recipe is sure to please all the family. Give it a try, and leave us a comment below to let us know what you think.

Easy Pancake Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Category: dessert, breakfast, snack

Yield: 20

Serving Size: single pancakes


  • 3 cups of milk (we used full cream)
  • 4 cups of self raising flour
  • Half a cup of castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Half a tsp of Bi Carb
  • Half a cup of choc chips
  • Half a cup of dried fruit
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Oil or butter to fry with.


  1. Use a bowl to whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Then sift the flour and bi carb into a separate large bowl and add the sugar
  2. Pour the liquid mixture into the bowl containing the dry ingredients and whisk until all the mixture is combined
  3. Heat the frypan and brush the oil or butter onto the pan or griddle (we use a large electric frypan which can cook more at a time and maintain a steady heat)
  4. Use a ladle to add equal amounts of the pancake mixture into the pan (with the large pan we are able to cook three at a time)
  5. Sprinkle a small amount of choc chips and dried fruit onto each pancake as soon as you ladle it into the pan
  6. Keep checking the underneath and when cooked, use a large spatula to carefully flip each one over to cook the second side
  7. Before adding new mixture, use a brush to add some more oil or butter to the pan to ensure none stick during the cooking process
  8. Place the cooked pancakes onto a plate and either eat immediately, or cover to keep warm until all are cooked.


We find this mixture easily feeds 4-6 adults, or 4 adults and a few little ones. To cook less, try cutting the mixture in half (though we often find that cold ones seem to disappear somewhere during the day anyway!).
