  • Makes

    20 Pancakes


  • 1½ cups self raising flour
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon castor sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • small pinch salt
  • butter or spray olive oil

to serve

  • A bowl of chopped fruit, we used Kiwi fruit, Strawberries and Bananas
  • butter curls (optional)
  • maple syrup to pour

You'll Need

  • Multix Cling
  • Multix Bake and
  • Resealable Slider Sandwich bags (if you’re making double quantities to freeze)


  1. In a large bowl sieve the self raising flour. Add the sugar, salt, egg, melted butter and butter milk, then using a stick blender or hand beater process till a smooth batter is formed. Scrape down the sides with a spatula and then process again.
  2. Cover with Multix Cling and rest in the fridge for about 20 minutes to develop the batter.
  3. Heat a large heavy frying pan on a medium low heat and either spray with olive oil or melt a small amount of butter in the pan. Using a small ladle stir the batter well and spoon about ¼ cup of pancake mix into the pan and spread it out with the back of the ladle (each pancake should be about 8cm across but of course you can make what ever size you prefer).
  4. When they turn golden, 1-2 minutes, turn with a metal spatula and cook on the other side, you should be able to cook batches of 3 to 4 at once.
  5. Keep the pancakes warm while you cook the rest of the batter.
  6. Serve warm with curls of melting butter, drizzled with maple syrup or honey and your favourite fruit.

Tip: For a fast snack or breakfast make double quantities of batter. Cook more pancakes than you need and store the extras stacked between sheets of Multix Bake, place in slider bags and freeze. When you’re ready to eat them, simply take out the number of pancakes you want and either toast or microwave them straight from frozen for a fast and delicious meal.
