Pancake Recipe Easy Thermomix or Hand Method

Published

This pancake recipe makes big, light, fluffy pancakes that soak up loads of delicious maple syrup or sweet berry sauce. It’s a quick recipe made by hand or in the Thermomix.

Have I excited your tastebuds with this deliciously dripping pancake image??? If you could smell the sweet smell of vanilla pancakes and berry coulis you would be knocking on my door right now!

I’ve used this same recipe for so many years now that when it went missing I nearly died a million deaths!  You would think I would know the ingredients off by heart, but I’ve always had a handwritten recipe card and never needed to remember the exact proportions.

I tried a few random pancake recipes but they just didn’t give the same fluffy, light pancakes that my old recipe produced. Happily, I was cleaning up my bedside table drawer and found it!! Today I’m sharing my pancake recipe so that it will always be “safe” on the internet.

This basic pancake recipe is completely fail-safe but I do have a few tips to get you started.

Pancake Recipe Tips

  1. Don’t overmix the batter. The ingredients should be only just combined.
  2. Use a small non-stick pan just a fraction bigger than the size you would like your pancakes to be.
  3. Use low heat to cook the batter. Because these are fluffy pancakes if too high a temperature is used the pancakes will cook on the outside but remain raw on the inside.
  4. Use kitchen paper to wipe a thin smear of oil over the pan before adding the batter.
  5. As much as butter tastes delicious it will burn too quickly and smoke, use oil to cook the pancakes.
  6. Cook the first side very slowly.  You should be able to see air bubbles all over the raw batter on the uncooked side before you turn it.
  7. Wipe clean the pan clean of residue with kitchen paper after cooking each pancake.
  8. Re-oil between cooking each pancake.

Making Pancakes By Hand

  1. Place the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Heat until melted.
  3. Add milk and vanilla essence stir to combine.
  4. Add flour, baking powder, sugar and then eggs to the bowl.
  5. Stir until combined.
  6. Leave to sit for 5 minutes.
  7. Cook as in the method below.

Pancake Toppings

I will provide the recipe for this delicious berry sauce in an upcoming post.  It is only 3 ingredients but I want to test the recipe using frozen and fresh berries so I can give full instructions for both.

In the meantime, my pancake recipe is delicious served with the following;

  • fresh berries and maple syrup
  • sliced banana and maple syrup
  • freshly squeezed lemon and caster sugar
  • choc chips, banana and warmed honey
  • your favourite jam heated

Ingredients
  • 60 g butter cut into pieces
  • 250 g 1 cup - milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 185 g 1 1/2 cups - self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 TBS caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
Instructions
  1. Place the butter in TM bowl. Heat 2min/100/Speed 1.

  2. Add milk and vanilla to the butter in TM bowl. Combine 5 sec/Speed 6.

  3. Scrape down the bowl add flour, baking powder, sugar then eggs. Combine 10sec/ Speed 4.

  4. Scrape down the bowl and allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes. (not critical but it helps the mixture achieve a good consistency)

Cooking Pancakes
  1. Heat a non stick frying pan over a low flame.

  2. Wipe the pan with oil or use a spray.

  3. Pour the batter into the centre of the pan. Tilt and "swirl" the pan to spread the batter.

  4. Allow the pancake to cook slowly until it is covered with bubbles and looking a little bit "set".

  5. Flip the pancake and cook until golden.

  6. Wipe clean the pan and add another small amount of spray oil.

  7. Repeat the cooking procedure.

Recipe Notes

Once made pancakes can be stored in the fridge or the freezer and heated in the microwave as required.

*Resting the batter is optional. It will cause the mixture to become a little thicker and the first few pancakes will be easier to manage if you do follow this step.
