You can use a cup or a mug:

  • 1 cup of self raising flour
  • 1 cup of whole organic milk
  • 1 large free range organic egg
  • tiny pinch of salt

To serve:

  • any berries
  • Greek yoghurt or double cream
  • Greek or clear honey, or maple syrup


Whisk the egg, flour, salt and milk together in a large bowl until it’s smooth, creamy and batter’y.

Heat a large knob of butter in a heavy frying pan then add half a ladleful of batter for each small pancake, you’ll probably get about four in the pan at a time.

Gently cook for a couple of minutes before turning each one and cooking til golden on each side.

Serve with the berries and yoghurt or cream. You can try heating the berries with some honey to make it even more delicious.
