"Our son Harry makes his own pancakes for breakfast every weekend! hillfarm oil has a higher burn point than butter so it’s perfect for frying and doesn’t fill your kitchen with that burnt butter smell you often get when making pancakes."

Serves Makes 12


  • 2 Eggs
  • 100g Plain flour
  • 200ml Milk
  • 50ml Water
  • hillfarm rapeseed oil for frying


  • Berries
  • Greek yoghurt
  • Maple syrup


  1. For the pancakes, sift the flour into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Break the eggs into the well and slowly combine the eggs with the flour.
  2. Put the milk and water in a jug together and gradually add to the batter (making sure you bring in all the flour from the edges of the bowl) until you have smooth creamy batter.
  3. Heat a heavy frying pan and add a teaspoon of hillfarm rapeseed oil – turn down to medium and add half a ladle of batter swirling it around until the bottom of the pan is covered. It should take only half a minute or so to cook; you can lift the edge with a palette knife to see if it’s turning golden.
  4. Flip the pancake over with a palette knife and cook for about 15 seconds.Turn each pancake onto a warm plate, separating them with grease proof paper.
  5. When all the pancakes are ready, serve them with berries , a spoonful of maple syrup and a dollop of Greek yoghurt.
