These good old-fashioned pancakes make the tastiest, fluffiest and most nostalgic pancakes you will ever try.Ā  This recipe has been in my family for generations – and it has never failed! It’s so easy, my 8 year old cousin made it on his own without any problems. So, with that said, you should ace this!

pancakes 5



  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt



    1. Beat the eggs, adding the sugar (I use an electric beater, but you could use a standard whisk or a blender instead). Add 1/2 cup of milk and the butter.
    2. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add this to the egg mixture.
    3. Gradually stir in the remaining milk to, to form a smooth batter. Once the ingredients are well blended, stop stirring. Over-stirring could result in the pancakes not rising (they would then be crepes).
    4. Grease the frying pan with butter.
    5. Pour mixture into the pan in small quantities (or according to how big you want your pancakes to be!)
    6. Start on a medium-high heat, and then turn the stove plate down to a low heat. You may need to adjust the heat with each new batch.
    7. Let the mixture cook on one side until the top starts to bubble, then flip it over with a spatula and let it cook until it’s a golden brown.
    8. Serve with butter, syrup, ice-cream or any other topping of your choice!andris-romanovskis-267865
