Pancake Recipe

21 Feb

It’s Pancake Tuesday, and I thought I would share the recipe I use most often. I will state at this juncture it is not my recipe, full credit has to go to Ray D’Arcy (Senior) father of Ray D’Arcy who presents on Today FM.


Every year, Ray has his father on the show on Pancake Tuesday to go through the recipe with listeners, and once I tried this recipe I never looked at another.



8 oz flour

2 eggs

Pinch of salt or sugar (depending on whether they are to be savoury or sweet)

1 pint of liquid (Two thirds milk to one third water)


You sift the flour and the pinch of salt/sugar, beat the eggs, and then add the eggs to the sifted flour. You will get a crumby mix. Now slowly add the liquid, a little at a time, whisking constantly so you get a consistent mixture with no lumps. Then let the mixture sit for 15/30 mins. Whisk before use.

Use a little oil on some kitchen paper to grease the pan, and cook on a medium to high heat. Enjoy!

    Vanilla castor sugar and fresh lemon juice for sure on PAncake Tuesday – any other topping can wait for another day!
