3 tsp white sugar
2½ tsp baking powder
2 eggs (beaten)
30 grams butter (melted and cooled)
300 ml milk
A little butter for frying
Blueberries and maple syrup to serve


  1. Sift the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder into a bowl and then make a well.
  2. Add the beaten eggs, melted butter and milk and stir in the centre of the well gradually drawing in the dry ingredients to create a smooth batter.
  3. Transfer to a jug.
  4. Melt a small nut of butter in a non-stick frying pan and allow to foam.
  5. When the butter is foaming pour in some of the pancake mix to approx. 10cm diameter.
  6. When the upper side of the pancake starts to bubble you can start to flip the pancakes and finish cooking on the other side. This will take a couple of minutes.
