It’s Pancake Day! We’re ditching the crepes though in favour of these – Miranda’s fluffy, thick, delicious American style pancakes.
Don’t just save for today, though – these are an amazing treat, all year round!
225g Plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
2 large eggs
30g melted butter
200ml fresh milk
Weigh out the ingredients and combine together in a food processor and blend, or mix together vigorously with a whisk.
Leave for 15 minutes to rest, this lets the baking powder start to work so you get a quick lift when the thick batter hits the pan.
Heat up a non-stick frying pan and spoon in the mixture – three to five dollops depending how large your pan is.
Leaving the temperature fairly high wait until the pancake starts to brown a little then flip it over, when it should start to rise up a bit. Once brown lift the pancake out and eat while warm.
Serve with maple syrup, golden syrup, fruit, chocolate spread etc
Inspired by my Mother & Grandmother, cooking has always part of my life.
With over 25-years in the industry, I have won many awards nationally and internationally representing the UK with The Craft Guild of Chefs culinary team.

I have taught hundreds of students including many who have extremely successful careers including Fabulous Baker Brother Henry Herbert, author and Iron chef judge Sophie Michell, Sophie Wright cookery author, Chef and food stylist plus Ed Smith of Rocket & Squash – one of London’s top food bloggers.
