1 cups all purpose | plain flour
60g sugar or sweetener
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk
60g butter

  1. Combine together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a
    large-sized bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the milk, slightly cooled
    melted butter, vanilla and egg.
  2. Use a wire whisk to whisk the wet ingredients together first before slowly
    folding them into the dry ingredients. Mix together until smooth (there may be
    a couple of lumps but that’s okay).
  3. (The batter will be thick and creamy in consistency. If you find the batter too
    thick — doesn’t pour off the ladle or out of the measuring cup smoothly — fold a
    couple tablespoons of extra milk into the batter at a time until reaching desired
  4. Set the batter aside and allow to rest while heating up your pan or griddle. 
  5. Heat a nonstick pan or griddle over low-medium heat and wipe over with a
    little butter to lightly grease pan. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the pan and spread
    out gently into a round shape with the back of your ladle or measuring cup.
  6. When the underside is golden and bubbles begin to appear on the surface,
    flip with a spatula and cook until golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
  7. Serve with honey, maple syrup, fruit, ice cream or frozen yoghurt, or enjoy
