Breakfast Pancakes – American Style

A little treat for a weekend breakfast. We serve this up in various different ways, banana and syrup, bacon and egg, or sometimes even just a knob of butter with a fruit salad at the side.

However you decide to serve up these pancakes they are always a great treat for anyone to have for breakfast. Especially on pancake day!

I only started making these as a little experiment after going away to San Diego and having pancakes for breakfast for the first time ever. I was so excited by what I had tasted and experienced that I wanted to try and recreate it when we got back home. The first few tries were terrible, but I finally managed to get a recipe that works for me and now this is something that I do as a treat once in a while.


  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 300ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 30g of melted butter slightly cooled

How to Make

Firstly you need a large bowl to mix the ingredients in and a frying pan, make sure you have a plate ready at the side as you will need this to stack the pancakes on once they have been cooked.

  1. Add all the dry ingredients into the bowl, make a well in the centre.
  2. beat in the 2 eggs then add the milk and melted butter.
  3. mix well – I use my electric whisk to make sure there are no lumps.
    • alternatively you could add all the ingredients to a blender and blitz, unfortunately I don’t own one so do it the hard way.
  4. melt some butter in the frying pan
  5. add a small amount of mixture to the pan and fry on both sides (watch my video for how I do this)
  6. once cooked put onto a plate to the side and repeat until all mixture has been used.
  7. serve with toppings of your choice and a nice cup of tea or coffee.

This easy recipe is great for a little treat here and there and I usually make this when we have a big day planned or if we are celebrating something, like a birthday. I love to make this for breakfast on pancake day as they are ever so slightly different to the pancakes I make for desert.

I hope you enjoy making these – and please let me know what toppings you add to your pancakes for breakfast.
