Perfect Pancakes

Perfect Pancakes



  • Sieve the flour and salt.
  • Make a well in the centre, drop in the eggs and add the milk.
  • Mix to a smooth batter then stir in the melted butter.
  • Try to leave the batter to rest for an hour before you use it, or make it the day before.

Serving suggestions

  • Add a little Connacht Gold butter, a sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • Serve with strawberries or any berries, maple syrup and a spoon of Connacht Gold cream.

Tips for making perfect pancakes:

  1. Don’t skimp on the ingredients: Mix plain flour with cake flour for the best batter consistency.
  2. Don’t estimate! Weigh your ingredients to make sure the ratios are accurate.
  3. Don’t overbeat the batter. Quickly whisk the batter just until the dry ingredients incorporate with the wet ones. Then stop — even if you see lumps.
  4. Don’t overheat the pan. If temperature is off, the pancakes will scorch or they won’t rise. Go for a medium-high heat.
  5. You’re flipping before the bubbles burst. Have patience and you’ll be finishing up with perfect pancakes.
