Basic Pancakes

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by KiwiMegan

From the Australian Women's Weekly 'Best Ever Recipes' book. There is no sugar in these pancakes. Also requires standing for 30minutes before cooking - but I'm sure it would still work without doing this.

This is definitely a mislabeled recipe. Following the recipe exactly as it is written yields crepe batter, not pancake batter. I added almost another 1/2 cup of flour and about 3 tablespoons of sugar, and they did taste good after those additions, but without a traditional leavening agent they were still very flat and definitely tasted crepe-y.


  1. 1. Sift dry ingredients into bowl. Add eggs, stir until mixture is smooth and free of lumps.
  2. 2. Gradually add milk, mixing to a smooth batter. Allow to stand for 30 minutes.
  3. 3. Heat pan, grease well.
  4. 4. From a small jug pour 2-3 tablespoons of pancake mixture into pan, swirling batter evenly around pan.
  5. 5. Cook over medium heat until light golden brown. Toss or turn pancake and cook on other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
