I just wanted to comment on the other reviews...If you use all-purpose flour, instead of self rising, they WILL be flat and tasteless. Follow the directions. If you don't have self rising flour, add baking powder. Look online for conversions.


This recipe has a good base, but even a flat cake need levening of sorts. after trying one as is(plus cinnamon), I added 1/2 tablespoon baking powder and 1/2 tablespoon sugar to the mix. The rest of the batch was much better. Next time I'll skip the oil, add honey for sweetness, and add the baking powder to the dry ingredients mixed beforehand.


Grabbed this recipe and 30 mins later we sat down to a giant stack of pancakes. I made two batches separately and the only thing I added was 2 tsp of vanilla extract. I was consistent with every measurement except the flour which I eyeballed for consistency. I put in enough to make the batter quite thick (even a little lumpy) and whipped it with a fork. In the pan (teflon with butter) the batter stayed together very well and did not easily run away. Only the edges had air bubbles by the time I flipped them, then I watched them rise before my eyes. I used less oil in the first batch and I thought that the first ones weren't as fluffy. My flatmates claimed they had never eaten fluffier pancakes, and I thought they were pretty darn good too, although I may tinker with some seasoning. N.B. make sure you're using self-raising flour, plain/all-purpose will leave you with flat, rubbery crepes. Do a tester first to see if the batter works, if not you still have time to tinker.
