  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder or baking soda
  • generous pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

to serve

  • butter
  • maple/golden syrup


  • To make the batter, combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
  • In a measuring jug, mix the wet ingredients well.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and with a whisk, mix until you have a smooth batter.
  • Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add a drop of oil to the pan and coat the pan lightly (I use paper towel to smear it around a little).
  • Add spoonfuls of the batter to the pan and allow the pancakes to cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip over and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side. Remove from the pan and keep on a warmed plate until all the pancakes are cooked.
  • Serve the pancakes with butter, syrup and fruit of your choice.
