Easy peasy pancake recipe

As well as the truly scrumptious valentines day, February also plays host to one of the best days of the year...pancake day. It provides an excuse to feast all day on those doughy little treats, whether you enjoy savoury, sweet or both fillings! I use Jamie Oliver at Home range of products that can help make pancake day even sweeter and an easy peasy one-cup pancake recipe to boot. 


  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 1 cup of self-raising flour
  • 1 cup of milk
  • sea salt
  • optional:
  • 200 g blueberries
  • olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons natural yoghurt


1. To make the batter, crack the egg into a large mixing bowl.

2. Add the flour, milk and a tiny pinch of sea salt.

3. Whisk everything together until you have a lovely, smooth batter.

4. Fold through the blueberries, if using.

5. Put a large frying pan on a medium heat and after a minute or so, 
add ½ tablespoon of oil.

6. Carefully tilt the pan to spread the oil out evenly.

7. Add a few ladles of batter to the pan, leaving enough space 
between each one so they have room to spread out slightly – each 
ladleful will make one pancake, and you’ll need to cook them in batches.

8. Cook the pancakes for 1 to 2 minutes, or until little bubbles appear 
on the surface and the bases are golden, then use a fish slice to 
carefully flip them over.

9. When the pancakes are golden on both sides, use a fish slice to 
transfer the pancakes to a plate.

10. Repeat steps 5 to 9 with the remaining batter, adding ½ tablespoon 
of oil to the pan between batches, if needed.

11. Serve the pancakes straight away, topped with a dollop of 
natural yoghurt, and some extra berries, if you like.
