Pancake Brunch

The Best Pancakes Ever!

In the quest to find fantastic egg recipies we have found this one for pancakes. These are the big fat fluffy American ones not those thin things we eat on Shrove Tuesday here in the UK.

We ran down to the chickens grabbed ourselves some eggs, picked some fresh raspberries and served them with gallons of maple syrup.

• 3 large eggs ( one each from Snowy, Ronnie and The chicken with no name!)
• 115g/4oz plain flour
• 1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
• 140ml/5fl oz milk
• a pinch of salt
* chocolate chips

First separate the eggs, putting the whites into one bowl and the yolks into another. Add the flour, baking powder and milk to the yolks and mix to a smooth thick batter. Whisk the whites with the salt until they form stiff peaks. (Due to the large amount of egg whisking I seem to be doing I have finally bought myself an electric whisk. Hallelujah!) Fold into the batter – it is now ready to use.

Heat a non-stick pan on a medium heat. Pour some of your batter into the pan and fry for a couple of minutes until it starts to look golden and firm. NO oil needed. I added some chocolate chips to the batter at this stage onto the uncooked side before turning over. Not large chunks though. These tended to burn. Continue frying until both sides are golden.

If you can't be bothered with all that mixing I have found this mix that you can buy from BestBrownie. Click on the link to go directly to the store.

You have to try this recipie. It is now a Sunday favourite.


  1. mmm pancakes.
    When you mentioned chicken I thought you were going to say you ate chicken with your pancake. In america they sometimes eat chicken with their waffles.

  2. Chicken and pancakes, now that is weird!

  3. Chicken and pancakes is weird, We're coming up on blueberry season here in southern Vermont... blueberries and pancakes is not weird ! Cheers !!Dale

  4. Sounds so yummy, Hubby wants to keep chickens but I am not sure we don't have lots of land and live on a modern estate. But love growing our own veggies.
