Recipe by Beesa

I grew up making these pancakes with my Mum every Saturday morning. It's now become one of those comfort foods so I thought I would share. I have tried adding different things to this recipe and discovered it is really good with Cardamom as well, but either way they are great pancakes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix floor, baking powder, salt, sugar and cardamom.
  2. combine egg, milk and shortening; the amount of milk to use will depend upon the thickness of pancakes desired (like thick butter milk works well).
  3. pour into flour mixture and stir just enough to moisten the dry ingredients.
  4. do not beat!
  5. preheat griddle and medium to low heat.
  6. for ease, pour mixture onto griddle with soup laddle.
  7. flip when pancakes are covered with bubbles.
