Simple Pancakes 

From SuperValu


  • 2  Eggs
  • 400 ml Milk
  • 250 g Plain Flour
  • 1 pinch SuperValu Salt
  • 0  SuperValu Sunflower Oil


  • To make the pancake batter, sift the flour into a bowl, add the salt and make a well in the centre.
  • Break the eggs into the well and add a little of the milk.
  • Gradually add the remaining milk into the egg and flour mixture using a large whisk until a smooth consistency has been achieved.
  • Cover with cling film and stand in the fridge for 1 hour if possible.
  • Heat a heavy-based frying pan and when hot, brush with the minimum of oil.
  • Pour a small amount of the batter onto the pan and swirl it around until it is evenly and thinly spread over the bottom.
  • Cook over a moderate to high heat for about 1 minute or until the edges are curling and the underside is golden.
  • Flip over and cook the second side for 30 seconds or so until golden.

Chocolate Pancakes 

From Little Green Spoon


  • 120g of gluten free oats
  • 300ml of nut milk

  • 15ml of maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 10g of cacao powder
  • 15ml of melted coconut oil
