My favourite pancake recipe

Yes, I’m afraid I have found and fallen in love with a pancake recipe other than my grandmother’s.

Tis that of Jamie Oliver. His ‘USA-style’ pancake recipe produces small, fluffy, lighter pancakes that are so yummy. Here’s the recipe:


  • 3 large eggs
  • 115g/4oz plain flour
  • 1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
  • 140ml/5fl oz milk
  • a pinch of salt
  • drop of vanilla essence (my addition)


  1. Separate the eggs – whites in one bowl, yolks in another
  2. Add flour, baking powder and milk to the egg yolks and mix to make a smooth batter
  3. Add vanilla essence (optional)
  4. Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff white peaks
  5. Fold egg whites into the mixture
