Hey Lovelies, 

Sunday bakes are normally a post dedicated to a classic British dessert. We have had a right mixture and will continue to always do so lovelies, as I come to terms with loving all kinds of foods again. This week on the ward, we have been asked if we want to challenge ourselves to pancakes. I really wanted to but right now, I just can’t get my head over the idea of them and it is a scary thing. However, I know if I was at home, I would be the one making them, and I would very much enjoy doing so.

Baking has always been something I have loved. Whether it is cakes, puddings or even pancakes. There so, it was only right to make this Sunday Bake post a celebration of the little or big puddings that we will be enjoying on Tuesday. It is never bad to get the pancake party started early after all.

Below I have popped one of my favourite recipes for thick American style pancakes, which make a great Sunday morning, evening or whatever time you fancy meal. Enjoy lovelies…

  • 135g/4¾Oz Plain Flour - For Extra-Fluffy Pancakes Change to Self-Raising Flour But Still Use The Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 130ml/4½Fl Oz Milk
  • 1 Large Egg, Lightly Beaten
  • 2 Tbsp Melted Butter or Olive Oil (Plus, Extra for Cooking)
  • Toppings of Your Choice – Maple Syrup, Jam, Sugar and Lemon, Honey, Ice Cream etc…

  • Mixing Bowl (x2)
  • Sieve
  • Whisk
  • Microwavable Bowl
  • Fork
  • Ladle
  • Non-Stick Frying Pan
  • Plate
  • Spatula

  1. Start by sifting the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar in a large bowl.
  2. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the milk and egg, before adding in the melted butter. Whisk until mixed together.
  3. Add the milk mixture into the flour mixture and beat with a fork until it forms a smooth batter. Leave to stand for a few minutes.
  4. On a medium heat, add a small amount of butter to a non-stick frying pan. Once melted, add a ladle of batter. You can make two at a time by adding another if your pan is big enough. The batter mixture should be very thick at this point.
  5. Once the pancakes begin to bubble, turn them over (or flip them if feeling brave) and cook on both sides until golden brown and it has risen to about 1cm/½in thick.
  6. Repeat the two previous steps until all the batter is gone. To make sure the pancakes stay warm, you could heat your oven to a small setting, however, it is best to dish them up as freshly as you can lovelies.
  7. When you are ready to dish them up, simply add the topping of your choice and enjoy!

Don’t forget to share your flipping good pancake pictures with me lovelies, as I love to see what you have created!
