Units Scale



  1. Add self-raising flour and baking powder to a large bowl (add sugar at this point if using, see note 1).
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the milk and egg. Add the butter and vanilla extract. The butter may go a little lumpy in the mixture as it cools, and that’s okay.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the flour and whisk until combined.
  4. Preheat a non-stick pan on medium-low heat. The low heat stops the pancakes from browning too quickly on the outside. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan if it needs it.
  5. Use an ice cream scoop to dollop the mixture into the pan. The pancakes will need to cook for 1-2 minutes per side. Place a lid on the pan halfway through cooking to help the pancakes cook through.
  6. Serve immediately with your favourite toppings. This recipe will make 8 pancakes.


Note 1 – This recipe does not include sugar. The pancakes are sweetened with toppings. Add 1/4 cup of caster sugar to your dry mix for a sweet batter.

MAKE AHEAD AND LEFTOVERS – Refrigerate cooked pancakes for up to 3 days. Freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw completely overnight in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave or eat cold.
