Morning y’all.

I kid, I’m no American.


But guess what? Apparently, these pancakes are. This morning I woke up and decided to whip up a breakfast treat for my family. After scouring through the internet for the BEST PANCAKE RECIPE, I decided to use Nigella Lawson’s recipe for American Breakfast Pancake. Nigella is a renowned chef, so I trusted that her recipe would produce extraordinary results.

ImageTo be frank, I was slightly disappointed. The flavour was okay, though it lacked something…..perhaps it needed some vanilla extract or cinnamon..perhaps a tad bit more sugar. Nevertheless, the flavour was acceptable, and the pancakes turned out A-OK!

ImageOfcourse, I didn’t eat them. I had a bit of a taste, but did not ingest it. (Well, obviously I had to taste it if not how would I have known it needed something extra???) People always say how weird it is for me to make and bake all sorts of goods yet to refuse actually eating them. Well most of the time I make stuff for others to please them, to make them happy, and perhaps to make me feel a sense of worth…

Anyways, I had a real good time making these delicate discs of goodness. You can definitely serve it up with all sorts of scrumptious toppings such as honey, fruit, yogurt, cinnamon…..Well those are the kind of healthy stuff I suggest, but if you choose to go anti-healthy, then go on. Swirl on some maple syrup, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, or whatever the heck your heart desires!!



  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 2 large eggs (beaten)
  • 30 grams butter (melted and cooled)
  • 300 ml milk
  • 225 grams plain flour
  • butter for frying


  1. The easiest way to make these is to put all the ingredients into a blender and blitz. But if you do mix up the batter by hand in a bowl, make a well in the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar, beat in the eggs, melted butter and milk, and transfer to a jug: it’s much easier to pour the batter into the pan than to spoon it.
  2. Heat a smooth griddle or pan on the stove.
  3. When you cook the pancakes, all you need to remember is that when the upper side of the pancake is blistering and bubbling it’s time to cook the second side, and this needs only about 1 minute, if that.
