Homemade Instant Pancake Mix (Nigella Lawson)

This comes handy on lazy mornings, and it's homemade

 
Just mix with wet ingredients, and your breakfast is ready
 
Recipe is from HERE
 
What you need:
 
For the pancake mix:
600g plain flour
3 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
40g caster sugar
 
Mix all ingredients above and keep in an airtight container
 
For the batter:
150g pancake mix
1 large egg
250ml fresh milk
1 tbsp melted butter
  1. Heat a flat griddle or pan with no oil
  2. Spoon drops of 1½-2 tablespoons of batter onto the hot griddle or into the pan and, when bubbles appear on the surface of the little pancakes, flip them over to make them golden brown on both sides. A minute or so a side should do it
 
The batter is rather thin
 
 

Delicious, soft and fluffy pancake drizzled with maple syrup. The pan that I used was too big, I got huge pancakes and a little too thin. I actually prefer thicker pancake, I shall use smaller pan next time :)



 
I'm submitting this post to Cook Like A Star, organised by Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids, Joyce from Kitchen Flavours and Anuja from Simple Baking where this month guest chef is Nigella Lawson
 
 
I still can't achieve smooth and even brown looking pancakes. Still working on it :)

This pancake mix is indeed a keeper!

  2. Hi Alice,

    I thought this is a great idea too. My son and I watched the youtube clip of Nigella cooking these pancakes for her daughter and slumber night party friends... My son said that he wants the pancakes but not the kind of girly party - LOL!

  3. I think your pancakes look great as is! Maybe letting the batter 'sit' for a bit - say 15 mins, might allow it to thicken.

  6. Hi Alice, great pancakes. Usually the first few pancakes are not evenly browned but I wouldn't care if it tastes great.
