Step 1

Separate the egg, putting the white and yolk in seperate bowls. Mix the egg yolk with the flour, baking powder and milk to make a smooth paste.

Step 2

Beat the egg white and a pinch of salt with an electric whisk (or by hand) until fluffy and holding its shape. Gently fold the egg white into the yolk mixture.

Step 3

Heat the butter and oil in a non-stick frying pan. Dollop a third of the mixture into the pan and cook on each side for 1-2 mins or until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make three pancakes. Drizzle over some maple syrup or honey and serve with berries, if you like.

This made a great breakfast for me this morning. I used buttermilk for the milk. It made a nice stack of medium sized pancakes. Quick , easy and tasty.

I haven't made pancakes for ages and now I'm wondering why? This is a great little recipe. I made exactly as written and topped with maple syrup and blueberries. Only one regret. Why didn't I make a double batch! Yummo and thanks for posting.

I made as per recipe and transferred the batter into a jug to better judge the amount that went into the pan and have uniform pancakes which I served with fresh strawberries though I only ate one but DH certainly enjoyed the other two with honey and cream and the reason for this is I at to monitor the amount of carbs to keep my blood sugars in control. Thank Marramamba made for For Your Consideration at FF&F.
