Mom’s Basic Pancakes Recipe Recipes 12 MAR 2013

basic pancake recipeWhen I first moved out of my parents’ home in my early twenties, mom provided me with a little handwritten book containing recipes of things that I enjoyed and might enjoy making now that I was on my own. This happens to be her simple pancake recipe:

Basic Pancakes

  • 2 Eggs
  • 500 ml water
  • 250 ml milk
  • 125 ml oil
  • 12.5 ml vinegar
  • 500 ml flour
  • 10 ml baking powder
  • 2 ml salt

Step 1:
Beat together eggs, water, milk, oil and vinegar

Step 2:
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt

Step 3:
Mix the two mixtures thoroughly together

Step 4:
Cover the mixture with a damp cloth and leave it standing for 1 hour in order to settle/set correctly (I never do this though)

Step 5:
Bake in heated pan, one at a time. Makes +- 15 pancakes, depending on the size of the pan

Done. As simple as that.

(Note: Pancakes can also be frozen. Stack wrapped in wax paper. Can be frozen for up to two months)
