American Breakfast Pancakes

american pancakesOk, so you don’t bake them but the ingredients suggest cake!

Since buying Nigella Express several years ago, these have been a staple in my diet!  These are my perfect weekend breakfast with turkey bacon and a drizzle of yummy maple syrup.  If I want something a little healthier then I chop up some fruit, warm through some blueberry conserve and pour all over.  I suspect the sugar content is sky high though!

They’re so easy to make and you can even make up a big batch of dry mix in a jar and use it whenever you want a quick and easy breakfast by just adding the milk and eggs.  You probably even have all the ingredients in your cupboards so you have no excuse not to give them a go!  Aunt Jemima box mix can go in the bin as of now!  Home made all the way baby!


  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla or caster sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 15g butter, melted and cooled – a few seconds in the microwave usually does the trick
  • 250ml milk
  • Extra butter for frying
  1. Put your dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Beat in the eggs, milk and melted butter.  (I usually add a little vanilla here for flavour)
  3. Put your frying pan on a medium heat and add a teaspoon or two of butter, pour/ ladle mixture.  It takes about a minute or so to fry and you know your pancake is done when you see little air bubbles then turn and fry for another 30 seconds or so.
Serves about 10 small pancakes, Nigella also suggests putting all the ingredients into a blender and blitzing for a minute or two!
