Servings 3 -4 Servings


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 3/4 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten with enough milk to make 300 ml (1 1/4 cups)
  • Oil for greasing the pan
  • Butter and honey for serving


  • In a large skillet, lightly drizzle oil over medium low heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar until well combined. Whisk in beaten eggs and milk until a smooth batter forms.
  • Once the skillet is heated, add tablespoon amounts of batter, gently smoothing the top and being careful not to crowd. Cook until the cakes start to set on the edges and bubbles appear in the center. Flip and cook other side until golden. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing the pan as needed.
  • Serve warm with butter and honey.
