Pancakes for one. The perfect Sunday breakfast

Weekends, specifically Sunday’s were made for pancakes right? Warrick loves nothing more then pancakes with Nutella and a chocolate drizzle at the weekends, infact he often gets up earlier then normal in excitement if he knows pancakes are on the menu. The issue is that often pancakes result in more batter then I need for just him as he never eats more then two and right now I can’t help him out with what’s left over. Bummer.

I don’t know why i didn’t realise earlier but recipes can be adjusted…brain wave…change the amounts to just get one serving! These pancakes came out perfect, they were big and fluffy and ridiculously melt in the mouth soft. I made two rather large pancakes but you could easily get 3-4 smaller ones from this recipe. It’s also super easy and quick!

Here’s what you will need: 

3/4 cup plain flour

1/2 tsp sugar

pinch of salt

2 tsp baking powder

1 medium egg

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium mixing bowl simply combine all ingredients, no need for seperation or mucking around. It will form quite a thick batter and it doesn’t matter if it’s slightly lumpy.


Heat a pancake pan on a medium heat and pour in your desired amount, cook until it starts to bubble slightly and then flip. Cook on the other side, normally this is no longer then 1-2 minutes per side. Voila perfect fluffy American style pancake!
