150g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 pinch bicarbonate of soda
1 egg
3 tsp melted butter
200ml buttermilk
3 tbsp sugar
1 pinch salt
3 tsp butter, for frying


  1. Mix the plain flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together in a bowl. Then mix in the egg, melted butter, buttermilk, sugar and salt to create a smooth batter.
  2. Heat the butter in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat, ladling in approximately 60ml of batter per pancake.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and fry for a couple of minutes until the edges are cooked and you notice bubbles on the surface.
  4. Flip the pancakes over to cook on the other side for another couple of minutes.
