Crazy Pancakes

Here's a good pancake recipe and some tasty topping ideas, as tested by my housemate and I in Feb. 2004 ...



  • 4 ounces (115g) of plain flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • Two eggs
  • Almost 1/2 pint milk
  • 1 dessert spoon of sunflower oil


  • Add all the ingredients to a large bowl
  • Whisk thoroughly
  • Add a drop of oil to a hot frying pan
  • Pour in a ladle of pancake mix
  • Cook until the moisture evaporates off the top side
  • Then check the bottom side by lifting the edges with a spatula
  • Toss the pancake and cook the other side


Tasty toppings:

  • Sugar and lemon juice - a classic!
  • Chocolate spread ( - Nutella works well - )
  • Chocolate spread and ice cream
  • Apple and thick cream
    (preparation: cook the apple down with sugar)
  • Golden syrup
  • Jam and ice cream
  • Maltesers and ice cream

  • When using ice cream, heat any other toppings on the pancake as it finishes cooking
    (this makes the pancake hotter after the ice cream is added)

If you know of any other tasty pancake toppings the please email me with the recipe.
