Kate's Canadian-style Pancakes!

Published Thursday, 05 September, 2013 by Kate

Fluffy, springy and my favourite recipe :) (serves~3)



  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder (don't use bicarb by accident whatever you do - else they end up tasting like pretzels!)
  • pinch of salt
  • 2-3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 2/3 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • excess oil for frying
  • maple syrup (to serve)


1. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl.

2. In a smaller bowl, beat egg and oil. Add milk and mix together (after this step, i usually put the pan on the hob to heat).

3. Pour wet mixture into dry and combine until smooth and beige in colour (should be thick but gloopy, not runny/doughlike).

4. Using a generous splash of oil in the pan, pour circles of mixture into pan (high heat). Fry until topside bubbles (~2 mins), then carefully flip and fry the underside (~1 min).

5. Serve with maple syrup and, if desired, bacon (also appropriate as a breakfast recipe).
