I've managed to get all the way through to my late 30s without making pancakes. It's been a great combination of hubby being really good at them, and me being lazy. 
The conversations have always gone "Mum, can we have pancakes?"
"Not unless Dad is making them... You know I always burn them!"
But today? I got conned into it. 
I used hubby's recipe. Difference is, I used coconut oil in the pan instead of butter.

Perfect colour, and no burning.

Simple sweet pancakes (makes a double batch)

  • 2 cups SR. flour.
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • Sugar to taste
  • A pinch of salt

  1. Mix eggs and milk together.
  2. Pour into flour in a large bowl, slowly incorporating with a whisk. Stir in the salt and sugar. Set aside.

  3. Heat a large cast iron pan/skittle. Melt 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in the pan, making sure to cover the entire bottom of the pan.
  4. Add the batter in 1 cup (a ladle) at a time.
  5. When you see bubbles through the batter, it's time to flip them. (As we've already discussed, I'm lazy. I use a spatula) Cook for a further minute or two in the other side, and serve up.
  6. Repeat until all batter is used (coconut oil and batter)

I made 12 pancakes from this. The girls like them with maple syrup. I like them with lemon juice and caster (superfine) sugar.

Just remember to eat them while they're hot!
