Ok, so we know that I have shared many recipes before and that I’m not a horrible cook, but I have a confession to make. I have always struggled with pancakes, one of the simplest recipes around and I could never get it right…until now.

This was a recipe I saw from Jamie Oliver, easy to remember and they turn out perfect every time.

What makes it so easy is that everything is in ‘ones’…

1 cup self raising flour

1 cup milk

1 egg

1 teaspoon (splash) vanilla essence


Mix it all together and then cook. How easy is that? And it doesn’t even have to be a proper measuring cup as long as you use the same cup for both the flour and milk.
