Summer treats: Fruity pancakes

Summer is finally here and if you are looking for a tasty breakfast for your lazy morning, you definitely have to give this simple and most effective American fluffy pancakes recipe a go!

They are so quick and easy to make but the most exciting part is that the possibilities to decorate them are endless!!


  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 225ml milk
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 knob of butter (melted)


  1. In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Add egg, milk and melted butter and whisk  until the ingredients are blended and smooth (I like to use a hand mixer to save time)
  3. Let the batter stand for fifteen minutes to thicken
  4. Preheat the pan over a medium flame (use a pancake friendly pan to make sure it won’t stick or you can lightly grease frying pan with butter or oil)
  5. Using a ladle, spoon the mixture into the pan and try to steadily pour the batter in the same spot to ensure round shaped pancakes
  6. Cook until bubbles appear (it takes about one to two minutes)
  7. Use a plastic spatula to flip the pancake and continue cooking until the second side is lightly brown and you are done and ready to get creative with decorating!
  8. You can fill and top your pancakes as your heart desires. For me, I’ve gone fruits crazy. I spread a little bit of whipped cream and Nutella between each layer and filled with my favorites fruits (kiwi, banana, strawberries and frozen blueberries). Then I topped with more whipped cream and a handful of fruits and a great dusting of icing sugar.
