Sharon Cosgrove Photography

These are a particular favourite of mine! I either have them with bacon and eggs, topped off with maple syrup or I’ll have them with Nutella and strawberries. Yum!

Serves: 4 – 6


256g Flour

4 Large eggs

250ml Cup milk

128g Sugar

1tsp Vanilla extract

1 Non-stick pan (Oil if preferred to cook)


  1. Whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla until well mixed
  2. In another bowl, mix together the flour and sugar
  3. Slowly add your wet mixture to the dry mix of flour and sugar, whilst whisking (so that no lumps form)
  4. Once well mixed, heat your pan on a medium heat and add oil if preferred

As someone that doesn’t really love banana’s, I love these pancakes as a “healthier” alternative. Sean also loves them!
