American Pancakes

Simple & Easy American Pancakes Recipe

These American pancakes are thick, fluffy and ready to stack high on a plate, just like in the movies! The difference from regular pancakes is that these bubble and rise a little in the pan – but they are still wonderfully simple to make. Serve them with Flora Buttery, syrup and fruit (or even crisp bacon for a special treat) for a deliciously easy breakfast recipe.

  • Recipe serves: 4
  • Prep Time 5 min
  • Cook Time 4 min


  • 125 g (4.5 oz) self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Medium egg
  • 250 ml (8fl oz) milk
  • 2 tbsp Flora Cuisine


  1. In a medium mixing bowl sift all of the dry ingredients together. Make a well in the middle and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl or jug, combine the wet ingredients and whisk together until well combined.
  3. Add the wet mix to the dry mix and stir until just moistened. The mixture will be lumpy but that’s fine.
  4. Heat a frying pan and add a little Flora Cuisine. Once it's hot, drop ladles of the mix onto the pan. Once they are bubbly on the top and the edges appear dry (after about 2 minutes), it’s time to turn them.
  5. Cook for a further 2 mins. Serve immediately with a dollop of Flora Buttery and maple or golden syrup.
