The Humble Pancake

Haven't cooked for the last few weeks because I was too busy with work, volunteering, job applications and dad's accounts, and this morning, I woke up itching to do something quick and easy. So decided on pancakes.


1 1/2 cup self-raising flour
2 eggs
2 cups fresh milk
1/2 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  1. Combine all the ingredients into the blender or juicer and blend until there are no lumps of flour in the batter.
  2. Heat up wok / skillet / frying pan with just enough oil to form a film on the cooking medium.
  3. Once cooking medium is hot, pour in some batter (about 2-4 Tablespoon) and swirl your pan if you want your pancake to be thinner.
  4. Once the pancake has roughly 75% of its surface covered with holes from the reaction between the self-raising flour and heat, use an egg flipper to flip over the pancake.
  5. Cook until the bottom is slightly golden.
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 until remaining batter is used up, occassionally spraying some oil on the cooking medium if required.
  7. Serve with maple syrup, nutella, jam of your choice, lemon juice with sugar, or even plain.
