JILL BAKES | Jill’s Ultimate Fluffy Pancakes

These are super easy to make - you don’t even need scales so they’re perfect to make with kids!

Seriously though, they are the best pancakes and you have to try them!! I added blueberries but you can leave them out if you just prefer plain pancakes.

What’s the ultimate pancake topping?? Has to be just butter and sugar for me.

Makes 8-10 large pancakes

9 heaped tbsp soda bread self raising flour

4 tbsp caster sugar

3 eggs

280ml (1/2 pt) buttermilk

2 handfuls blueberries

Pancakes stack with blueberries served on white plate


Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Add the sugar and combine. Make a well in the centre.

Add the eggs and buttermilk and mix with a metal spoon until it forms a thick batter. Fold the blueberries through gently.

This batter should be really thick to make the pancakes fluffy so go easy with the buttermilk!

Lightly grease a griddle or pan with spread or butter. Ladle on the mixture depending how big you want your pancakes!

Cook over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until there are plenty of bubbles, then flip and cook on the other side.

If you are using a pan, make sure it is non-stick!

Serve with more blueberries, syrup or whatever yummy toppings you feel like!

Best served fresh on the day but stay good for a couple of days - I like to heat in the griddle or in the microwave!
