Easy peasy pancakes

Last weekend, I decided to make some pancakes for breakfast since I had the essentials (flour, milk, egg) in the fridge. I remembered reading about an easy pancake recipe on Karen Cheng’s blog sometime and found it. She called them the ‘best pancakes ever’ so it sounded good!

It looked pretty easy (it was!) and soon I was done.


I have to add that I wasn’t very consistent in flipping them so some were a bit too brown while others looked a bit pale. Heh. I was also fascinated at how the bubbles form on the surface and it’s a sign to flip ’em. So cute! Ok, it’s my first time making pancakes from scratch so you’d have to pardon the enthusiasm at seemingly normal food occurrences.

It tasted pretty decent but was a little bland on its own. Next time, I’d throw in a bit more salt and eat it with proper maple syrup and whipped cream. Mmmmmmm…..

Here’s the recipe from Karen Cheng’s site:


  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons of castor sugar (optional)
  • 1 egg, beaten lightly
  • ¾ cup (180ml) of milk
  • butter for cooking


1. Mix flour and sugar
2. Mix in egg and milk, to make a smooth batter.
3. Add a bit of butter to lightly coat a hot pan. Pour dessert-spoons of pancake mixture onto the pan.
4. Wait for bubbles to appear on the surface of the pancake, flip!
5. Serve hot with fruit, yoghurt and honey!
