Drum up a classic American breakfast with this delicious pancake stack recipe.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Servings: 4 people


  • 350ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g Tesco Everyday Value Plain Flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Maple syrup


Whisk the milk and eggs in a jug, then set aside.

Sieve the flour and the baking powder into a bowl, add a pinch of salt, the sugar and combine.

Make a well in the centre and gradually pour in the milk and egg mixture.

Beat well.

Brush a nonstick frying pan with a little vegetable oil and place over a medium heat.

When the pan is hot, pour half a ladle of batter into the pan to form a pancake that is approx 10cm in diameter.

Cook until bubbles start to form, then flip the pancake over and cook the other side until golden.

Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup, if you like.
