As weekend breakfasts go, I think you’d be hard pushed to find a finer one than that of pancakes. It’s the ritual of whisking batter and melting butter and watching them puff up as they cook, as much as the eating, that makes them such a treat. I’ve been fiddling with my recipe for thick American-style pancakes for years now, and have, if I do say so myself, absolutely cracked it. It’s the extra egg white that makes these a total light-as-air dream. Top them off with some sliced banana and a drizzle of a light, floral honey (I bought this jar of Acacia honey in France last month, and am desperately trying to eke it out!), and then eat whilst dreaming up ways to make the most out of your weekend…

I N G R E D I E N T S  +  I N S T R U C T I O N S  ::

1 cup plain flour
1 cup semi-skimmed milk
1 whole egg, plus 1 egg white
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pinch salt
2 tbsp butter, for cooking
1 banana
Honey  {Acacia is my absolute favourite}

- Put the flour, milk, bicarb, pinch of salt, and the whole egg into a large bowl, and whisk until just combined. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg white until it forms soft peaks (about 2 mins of whisking, by hand), and then gently fold into the batter, taking care not to knock out any air.

- Melt the butter in a large non-stick frying pan, then pour it out into a small bowl for greasing the pan as you cook.

- To cook the pancakes, grease the frying pan then get it good and hot before pouring in three small puddles of batter. Wait until you begin to see bubbles forming on the top, uncooked side, before flipping and cooking for 20 seconds or so longer. Repeat until all the batter’s used up {I get about 10 pancakes from a batch of this size}.

    I’ve already had my breakfast, but I’m still craving pancakes right now, haha. These look PERFECT. I’ve never been able to make perfect American pancakes, but I’m definitely going to give this recipe a go.

    Oh wow, these look great – I could really do with some now after a wet school-run! In our house we always have Scotch pancakes with butter on them, but I definitely want to get more adventurous with them x

  • Giulia

    Honey is always the best with pancakes (you should try a Millefiori honey, it’s similar to acacia honey but it’s more sweet).


  • emily couture

    These Pancakes look so yummy! :)

    These look delicious, I have my own batter recipe that I make up in bulk to keep in a jar so I can just add some melted butter and an egg and quickly have a short stack ready to be topped with bacon and maple syrup (my favourite less healthy combination) but next time I shal try banana, I have a jar of local lime blossom honey sitting in a new honeypot on my counter just waiting to be savoured :)

    These look yummy. I’ve had several people tell me you absolutely have to add a beaten egg white to pancake batter for them to be fluffy. There must be something to it! :)

    If you want banana IN your pancakes, blend a banana with an egg and use that as the batter – soooo good :)
