Pancakes at home | Centenary Nannies and Babysitters


Make your own homemade pancakes! It is actually really easy!

Pancake Ingredients:

  • 1 cup self-raising flour or buckwheat flour (add 1 teaspoon baking powder if using buckwheat).  
  • 250 mls warm water.
  • This will make approx. 8 small pancakes for stacking OR 4 large pancakes if you prefer them to fill the size of your plate!
  • Butter – to your desire or coconut oil for the pan.


  • Mix flour and water together until you get a lump free and runny pancake consistency.
  • Add butter to pan or oil and heat to bubbling hot.
  • Once pan is hot, using a spoon or spatula add some of the mixture to the pan – I like to cover the surface of the pan so start from the middle out until you get the diameter of pancake size you would like.
  • Turn down the heat slightly down then put the timer on for 1min or you can wait until the pancake mixture shows signs of bubbling.
  • FLIP the pancakes in the pan using a spatula. Cook for a further 1min on the other side.
  • Place cooked pancakes on plates and top with your favorite fruits, maple syrup, chocolate sauce or honey and dig in!
