Fluffy Buttermilk & Strawberry Pancakes


  • 1 cup of self raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons of caster sugar (optional, if you prefer sweet pancakes over more savoury)
  • 1 cup of milk (at room temperature is best)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1 egg (at room temperature is best)
  • Butter

Tip: Substitute white four for wholemeal flour, or use half coconut flour (which is full of fibre) and reduce the amount of sugar for a healthier recipe.


1. Combine flour, sugar, milk, vanilla essence and egg into a mixing bowl. Do not over mix for best results.
In a large frying pan, heat until hot. If a few drops of water sizzle right away, your pan is ready! Lightly grease with butter.

2. Using a ladle or measuring cup (1/4 cup is good), pour the mixture into the pan, holding them down close to the pan.

3. After a minute or two you should notice bubbles and the pancake edges drying. It's time to quickly but gently flip them over! A flat, wide spatula is best. Cook until golden.

Enjoy these delicious pancakes while you can – with maple syrup, butter, jam, honey, berries, lemon juice, sugar or whatever your tastebuds fancy!
