For the dry pancake mix (makes 5 batches of pancakes):
dried milk powder
golden caster sugar
Tbps baking powder
bicarbonate of soda
For 1 batch of pancakes:
dry pancake mix
coconut oil + extra for frying
Weigh out all of the dry pancake mix ingredients and place them in a large bowl.
Mix them together really well until fully combined.
Pour the mix into a large glass jar or air-tight container to store.
To make 1 batch of pancakes:
Weigh out 165g of the dry pancake mix into a large bowl.
Break 1 large egg and lightly whisk.
Melt the coconut oil and add to the dry pancake mix along with the whisked egg and 150ml of water.
Lightly whisk everything together until just combined.
Heat a frying pan on the hob until hot. Add a little coconut oil and swirl it around the pan.
Drop heaped spoonfuls of the pancake mixture into the pan and spread around a little with the back of the spoon to make round pancakes. Note: I found it easiest to make 2 pancakes at a time.
Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes, then carefully flip over and cook on the other side until golden brown.
Remove from the pan and pop on a plate, then repeat until you have used up all the pancake mix.
Serve your pancakes with fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup, yum!
If you don't have coconut oil, you can use vegetable oil as a substitute.
