Quick pancakes

One of the simplest and most reliable pancake recipes you will find.

Quick pancakes

Serves: 2


  • 130 g (1 cup) plain flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 235 ml (1 cup) almond milk
  • 2 tbsp flavourless oil
  • Frozen blueberries (defrosted) or dark chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat a frying pan.
  3. Add the milk and oil to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. A few lumps are fine.
  4. Spoon enough mixture into the pan for one pancake, and then drop a few blueberries or chocolate chips onto the wet batter in the pan.
  5. Flip the pancake once the bottom is firm and light brown.
  6. Cook until the other side is also browning.
  7. Repeat spooning the batter into the pan until it’s gone.
  8. If the pancakes begin to turn out flatter, try adding some more baking powder.
  9. Serve hot with maple syrup.

How many EA Tasty Spoons does it get?

  1. Screen Shot 2016-04-09 at 18.53.32 No animal products.
  2. Screen Shot 2016-04-09 at 18.53.32 As far as I’m aware none of the ingredients are particularly harmful for the environment. If you’re worried about almond milk, you can use soy milk or any other non-dairy milk instead.
  3. Screen Shot 2016-04-09 at 18.53.32 It’s all fairly cheap. More on the pricey side is almond milk (£1 per litre in the UK), and the optional frozen blueberries (£2 for 350g in the UK). Pretty good overall so deserves a spoon.
  4. Not so healthy. Almost entirely made of refined carbohydrate.
