Recipe: Pancakes

My kids were up early this morning so that we had time for these before school!

I have tried lots of different recipes but always go back to Delia.

You can see a video of us making them over on our Instagram page here.

Scroll down for Delia’s recipe.

Here’s my eight year old tucking in!

We went for classic lemon and sugar, what’s your favourite flavour?



110g Plain flour

Pinch of salt

2 Free-range eggs

200ml Milk

75ml Water

2tbsp Olive oil or melted butter


  1. Add the flour and salt to a bowl

  2. Whisk in the eggs

  3. Gradually whisk in the milk and water

  4. Whisk in the oil/butter

  5. Pre-heat the frying pan

  6. Add a ladleful of batter to the frying pan and swirl to cover the pan

  7. Fry until golden, flip and cook until even

  8. Enjoy!

I hope you have as much fun with these as we did.

You can make them dairy free by swapping out the milk and water for 275ml of non-dairy milk. We made them with oat milk this morning as my eldest is intolerant to dairy.

I think it is so important to have a great non-stick frying pan and to make sure that you get it really hot before you start. I then drizzle on a little oil and wipe off the excess with some kitchen paper. Make sure you let the pan re heat before starting the next pancake.

I kept them warm under a piece of foil when I’m making them for the kids. Although they can usually eat them as fast as I can make them!

I would love to hear what toppings you go for. We have made them filled with ham and cheese which is lovely when it all melts together. 

Happy flipping,
