Luxe & Humble | Light & Fluffy 3 Ingredient Pancakes

These pancakes are quick, easy, fluffy, foolproof & absolutely delicious.
Perfect for Sunday breakfast, a quick & easy afternoon tea with jam & cream or as breakfast in bed for someone special! 


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of self raising flour (or 1 cup plain flour & 1 tsp baking soda)
  • 1 cup milk

You will also need melted butter for your frying pan. 

NB: This recipe can be doubled. The above makes approx. 8 pancakes.

  1. Place all ingredients into a jug with a spout & whisk until smooth. 
  2. For ultimate fluffiness let the batter rest for 15 mins while you prepare your toppings. 
  3. Heat a frying pan to medium heat and melt butter to cover the base of the frying pan.
  4. Pour batter into frying pan, batter should be approx. 10-15cm wide. Ensure you have room to get your egg flip in to flip the pancake. (PRO TIP: you can pour your batter into a squeezy bottle to allow for easy squirting of the perfect size pancakes. This also allows you to draw different shape pancakes - like love hearts!)
  5. Allow pancakes to cook until bubble holes start to appear in the top that do not fill back over then flip the pancake. 
  6. Cook for approx. 1.5 minutes on the second side (until light brown) and then place on a plate.
  7. Place cooked pancakes on a plate in a warm oven or in your microwave on a keep warm function while you repeat steps 4-6 until all batter is gone. 
  8. Serve your pancakes with the toppings of your choice & enjoy!
