  • 2 cups self raising flour if using plain flour add 1 teaspoon bicarb soda and 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter or oil
  • 2 cups buttermilk


  • Mix all dry ingredients together.
  • Beat the eggs and add melted butter or oil.
  • Add one cup of buttermilk to the eggs, mix well.
  • Pour buttermilk and eggs mixture into dry ingredients and mix all quickly into a thick batter with a whisk. By adding half the required liquid first the batter will be smooth and without clumps.
  • Now add the second cup of buttermilk and incorporate gently. Add more buttermilk if the batter is too thick.
  • At this stage you can add some corn, herbs, grated cheese or carrot for savoury or chopped fruit or berries for the sweet version.
  • Pour the batter into medium hot oiled pan or griddle – about ¼ of cup or more for larger pancakes. Cook as many at the time as you can fit in your pan without sticking together.
  • Turn over when bubbles appear on the top and cook the other side until golden.
  • Serve warm.
