Pancakes are a common breakfast recipe especially in the US and they are taken as a main course or dessert in Britain. Pancakes trend all year long. There was this tuck shop in my secondary school where I used to buy my snacks and stuff, they used to sell some really hard and tasteless snack (yeah, I know it is tasteless cause I tried it – girl has got to explore na) which they called pancakes. Pancakes indeed, well maybe they called it pancakes for lack of names but they are so unlike pancakes which are usually not hard. I have had the thick (American style) and thin (European style) pancakes but I prefer the pancakes made in the European style (thin batter) and that’s what I’m going with in this post. However you can try both styles and decide which you prefer; do let me know which you prefer. The thick batter style requires more batter in the frying pan; the process is still the same.

You will need

Flour - 2 cups; I used a 160g cup

Sugar - ¾ cup

2 Eggs

I cup of Milk - Skimmed or ‘Semi – skimmed’ milk

Cayenne pepper i.e dried pepper – ½ teaspoon

Nutmeg – a pinch to taste

Few drops of vegetable oil

Baking powder (optional) – I like to go without baking powder in my pancakes

Orange zest – this gives the pancake an extra delicious flavour. How do I get orange zest? Get an orange, a grater. Rinse the orange and gently pass over the grater to recover the zest, do not apply pressure on the orange so as not to get to the bitter inner layer of the zest.  

orange zest


Get a clean bowl

Add the liquid ingredients first; pour the milk and break the two eggs into the bowl then whisk. 

Then add the dry ingredients; add the flour and sugar into the bowl and beat.

Add the nutmeg, cayenne pepper, orange zest and beat again.

Now you have the batter for pancakes.

To enhance the taste, leave the batter in the fridge for up to an hour.


1 hour later

Retrieve batter from the fridge, get a clean frying pan and place the frying pan on the cooker. When the frying pan is red hot, carefully add a few drops of oil into the pan and spread out evenly in the frying pan. You need very little oil - to make sure you satisfy the little oil condition, turn your frying pan over if you have oil dripping that means excess oil. In the place of oil, you can wrap some margarine in serviette paper and use to grease the frying pan.

Pour a spoon of batter into the frying pan and spread the batter to make a big circle by moving the frying pan.

Flip to the other side when the edges begin to get dull, let it sit for few seconds until it becomes brown.

Place the cooked pancake on a plate.

Repeat procedure until you run out of batter.

Ta – da, enjoy your pancakes. Serve with jam, honey, cream or chocolate sauce.


That was easy right? Do try it soon and tell me how it tastes.

Here is an image of the thick - batter pancakes I retrieved from a video.

    I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious
    to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
    writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
