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!

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.
