This pancake recipe is from my years in the UK. I'll tell you a story: once upon a time when I was living in the UK  I had a part time job working in different restaurants, cafes and deli's, back of house roles and even over the counter... this means I cooked a lot of oyinbo food from time to time and one that was very popular of course were pancakes...! This recipe is too easy! WarningDO NOT copy my recipe text to your blog or website without my consent! You can share my videos but don't copy my recipe TEXT! Wehdone.

2 Cups Flour
3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 Salt
4 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
2 Cups Milk
2 Large Eggs


  • Sift flour and baking powder because you can find clumps or unwanted items there so make sure to sift.
  • In one bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, sugar, salt.
  • In another bowl, combine all the wet ingredients: Eggs, melted butter, vanilla essence, milk
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix gently, don't worry if you have clumps after 5 minutes of mixing. 
  • Now heat up a pan (medium heat) , add a teaspoon of butter or vegetable oil till it is hot. 
  • Scoop a small portion of the pancake batter and add to the pan. 
  • You will know its ready to flip over when bubbles/holes appear at the top of the pancake. Flip and fry for another minute.
