2 large eggs
250ml (1 cup) milk
300g (2½ cups) self-raising flour


Put the eggs and milk into a medium bowl and mix together with a balloon whisk until fully combined. Add the flour and mix in until the batter is smooth.

Heat a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat and spray with cooking oil or add a blob of butter.

Pour about 60ml (¼ cup) of the batter into the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until bubbles appear on the top. You can cook them one at a time, or in batches if you have a griddle pan or a larger frying pan. Using a large spatula, flip over and cook on the other side for 1-2 minutes until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 10 pancakes.

Serve each pancake immediately, with your favourite toppings (see below for suggestions).

Topping suggestions: Try these delicious topping combinations: butter and maple syrup, lemon and sugar, berries and yoghurt, fresh fruit and whipped cream, or even chocolate hazelnut spread or speculoos spread (cookie butter).
