From banana or protein pancakes to sweet potato or oatmeal pancakes, there’s so many different and unique pancake recipes available these days, deciding which to opt for can be tricky. So, why not keep things simple and go back to basics with a good old, classic pancake recipe?

Not only is it extremely quick and easy to make the traditional pancake batter, but you’ll probably find it’s one of the cheapest to make as it involves purchasing no fancy ingredients. All you need is one egg, one mug of plain flour and one mug of milk and you’re ready to go.

Whisk together the ingredients in a bowl until the batter is smooth – you might want to sift the flour first to avoid a lumpy mixture. With your batter mixed and ready, heat a pan and use a drop of oil or a little butter to lightly grease it. Once heated, pour a small amount of mixture into the pan and swirl around until the pan is evenly coated. As your pancake begins to cook on one side, it should start to loosen up so you can turn it with a fish slice (or if you’re feeling brave enough you can flip it in the pan), and cook the other side until golden.

And there you have it, a delicious pancake made in minutes. The hardest part is deciding what toppings you’re going to have with it. Keep it simple and classic with a sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice, go nuts with some peanut butter and bananas, feel fruity with blueberries and strawberries or indulge with chocolate sauce and ice-cream.

No matter what you choose, pancakes are a great snack and can be a healthy alternative too (depending what you top them with of course). So, get together with your friends and flatmates this Pancake Day and have a flipping good time!
