• 1 cup Self Raising flour
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 1 teaspoon butter (melted)
  • 1 ¼ cup milk
  • Non-stick cooking oil


Mix Self Raising flour, eggs, milk and butter in a bowl. (If you wish to make sweet pancakes add a tablespoon of sugar). Let the mixture sit in the fridge overnight or for one hour before cooking.

Place a frying pan over medium heat and spray with non-stick oil. Pour in ¼ of the batter and tilt the pan to coat the bottom evenly.

When bubbles appear in the batter, then turn over the pancake and cook for a further 10 seconds. Spray the pan with oil each time you cook another pancake.
