Great recipe. Quick and easy to make. Thank you!

Me and my best friend always make this anytime we are at each others houses and eat half of it raw it’s that good

it looks good cant wait to try your beautiful pancake I will tell everyone a 5 star thanks for posting this in google.

Quick to make very delicious

Perfect pancakes I make a double batch to feed five and it is heaps

Great recipe, I can make enough for me with a few leftover for later. Never had any trouble with this recipe, dunno what others are doing wrong

Soft and fluffy easy to make very delicious I add 1 teaspoon vanilla as well!

I only got 3 decent sized pancakes out of the mixture. Was a bit disappointed.

Not enough milk relative to the flour - makes an overly thick mixture

Very quick recipe and they turned out very fluffy.

AMAZING the texture was so good

Great recipe. Easy to make. Serves two for breakfast. Not quite 6.

The first batch was terrible, it didn’t brown or fluff up at all.
The next lot browned up but again never fluffed up, it also tasted bland. I would give it a 2/10.


Not the best, but nice. Very small portion though.

Was really yummy. Quick to make.

Easy to make, cooks well and isn’t too sweet.

Our ones turned out so much better then we expected. Yum. So good. They were a little bit runny but delicious.

So worth giving a try for first timers. I have been using this recipe for easy breakfast for the kids before heading to school.

Fantastic recipe and very easy to make.

They tasted great the recipe was really easy. Thank you.

Exvellent recipe. The pancakes were lovely and light. This will be my go to recipe from now on. Thank you.

Excellent recipe. The pancakes were lovely and light. This will be my go to recipe from now on. Thank you.

It was easy and delicious, definitely the best of all time.

They Sucked

These pancakes turn out The Best. No competition! They are light and perfect!

They were amazing!! Easy to make and the batter produced suched beautiful light pancakes. They are a bit sweeter than other pancakes due to the sugar so you could eat them with just butter but I like them sweet so I also added maple syrup. My fave recipe. Use it over and over again.

Have this bookmarked! So easy to make and always turn out perfect! ☺️

Awesome pancakes easy to make very yummy

Super easy, super tasty.

These pancakes are lit.

So easy to make, nice & light. I would double recipe for 6 people. Would definitely make again.

Easy peasy... I chuck everything in the blender. Yum.


Easy to make and yum

Super easy, super tasty!

Good very good

Not a greast recipe.

Beautiful. Great. Try it out.


Great results but definitely does not feed 6 people as stated, barely feeds three.

Only good for a small portion of pancakes. If you double the recipe it becomes gluggy and falls apart far too easy. Not good for a larger family (more than 3 people). Will go back to the competitors recipe. Really disappointed actually

Great, but dash of vanilla, anyone?

It is so yummy. I love this recipe. :)

I dunno how everyone else is making these to be so runny or not sweet enough, everytime I make this recipe, to the recipe, they turn out great. Get about 12 smaller sized pancakes perfect for the kids. Seems to be plenty for 2 kids and 2 adults.

Very Yum

Wonderful recipe! My daughter, who is 4, loves them EVERY Sunday morning with a squiggle of Syrup on the top! Perfect!

They are so yum

5 star straight away. My daughter loves them and asks for them every Sunday, super quick and easy. Definitely recommend these pancakes.

This is such a great recipe! We really didn't have much in the house when we were making these so I was quite worried that we wouldn't have something/not have enough of something. But it turned out really really great! I definitely recommend!

Absolutely amazing recipe! It was light and fluffy and went nicely with maple syrup! I would suggest adding an extra tablespoon or two of flour to make it slightly thicker but other than that, I will def make them again.

It was crunchy on the sides and beautiful in the middle. Everything about it was bellisimo


I used GF self raising flour so I was a little worried but it turned out so well! My mix was a bit thick but that's how I like my pancakes so I was very pleased and will make them again :)

I really love this recipe, as I'm a kid it's great and easy for me. They taste great! ❤️

Good bit runny other than that very nice

Need a bit more flour but otherwise it a 10/10

Needs more sugar

Love these pancakes! I added about 2 more tablespoons of self raising flour to thicken it more but other wise it was perfect .10/10!

Great. Very delicious.

Awesome easy as recipe, taste absolutely divine!! Thank you!

These pancakes are amazing!!!!!!


Delicious and simple recipe! Pancakes are delicious!

Not sure how it serves 8 people when it only makes 6 pancakes, but other than that very good and delicious recipe.
CHELSEA: Hi there, thank you for your feedback. You should get more than 6 pancakes based on the recommended amount of mixture per pancake. However, we have reduced the number of serves slightly :-)

I am very proud of this recipe because I need to find the healthiest recipe using simple ingredients to save money and weight of groceries carried with me.

Definitely needed more flour but otherwise good
