Saturday Morning Pancake

Guys! By some amazing fluke, I’ve figured out the perfect pancake recipe (for me, at least) 😀


I use a non-stick pan for the pancakes, and they work every single time, with no sticking.


No more horrible messes, no more wondering when to flip.


I have it done to a fine art.

You put the flame down low so the non-stick surface doesn’t die,


wait until the pancake surface is all bubbly,


and flip with a broad, flat implement.


Beautiful! You don’t even need oil in the pan, or the pancake mix, because it’s a non-stick pan ^_^


The pancake is ready when it begins to steam around the edges (almost imperceptibly).

They’re quick and easy to make on a Saturday morning when you haven’t prepped anything, but want to celebrate the weekend. I use a bread starter I have in my fridge of 50:50 flour to water, but that’s the only thing that’s prepared earlier. The pancakes only take about a minute each side, so a stack is really quick to make.

Saturday Morning Pancakes

  • Servings: 10
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

  • 255g starter (50:50 flour:water*)
  • 3 eggs
  • 75 mL milk
  • 1.5 Tbs brown sugar
  • splash of vanilla, to taste
  • 1.5 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder

*I don’t know whether this recipe works if the flour and water are added separately, rather than as a starter, but you could always try 🙂

  1. Mix all ingredients until homogeneous (sift the bicarb soda and baking powder in, because they taste terrible if they clump).
  2. Use a non-stick pan on a low flame to cook the pancakes.
  3. When the pancake surface is all bubbly, flip the pancake gently.
  4. When the pancake starts to steam slightly, the pancake is ready.
  5. Eat the pancakes.
