Ingredients

  • 2 cups SR flour (or plain/all purpose flour with 6 teaspoons baking powder)
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup (or light corn syrup)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

  • Sift flour into a bowl and add sugar.
  • Add syrup and stir in with a knife.
  • Beat eggs and add milk and water.
  • Add to dry ingredients and mix to a batter. Use a whisk but do not overbeat. Instead, just stir until all lumps are removed and you have a smooth batter.
  • Pour batter into a jug with a pouring spout.
  • Grease and then heat a heavy-bottomed frying pan.
  • Pour mixture into pancakes of about 8cm in diameter.
  • Wait until bubbles form and then flip and cook on the other side for a couple of minutes.
  • Serve warm with maple syrup and ice cream (or something else equally delicious!)
