The perfect recipe for at home American style pancakes with sublime crisp edges!

 200 g self-raising flour
 200 ml milk
 25 g salted butter, melted +extra for cooking
 3 large eggs beaten
 1 ½ tbsp light muscavado sugar
 1 ½ tsp baking powder
 vegetable or sunflower oilfor cooking

Using a sieve, sift the flour into a mixing bowl then add the sugar and mix together with a fork.


Add in your baking powder and mix again.


Set aside and measure out your liquids, beating the eggs with a fork and melting the salted butter.


Using the back of an ordinary tablespoon create a well and pour in the milk, eggs and butter.


Use a hand mixer to whisk the mixture together until it has a silky smooth texture.


Cover with cling film and leave in the fridge to rest for about 30 minutes.


Heat a small knob of butter and 1 tsp of oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.


When the butter looks frothy, use a ½ or ¼ measuring cup to pour in rounds of the batter, making sure that they’re not too close together if frying more than one simultaneously.


Cook the pancakes on their first side for about 1-2 mins until the underside is golden brown or until lots of tiny bubbles start to appear and pop on the surface. Flip the pancakes over and cook for a further minute or two on the other side until golden brown.


Make sure the middle of the pancake is cooked through before removing it from the pan.


Repeat until all the batter is used up.


Serve with toppings of your choice, drown in maple syrup and dig in.
