America does food better. It’s bigger, fancier and tastier. So why not steal their style of pancakes for a delicious breakfast.

All you need for these pancakes is:
- 175 g plain flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon caster sugar
- 1 large egg
- 175 ml milk
- 75 g butter
- 120 g salted caramel sauce (it’s easier just to buy this – you can also use maple syrup)
- 1 large apple (or any other fruits you want to add – I add strawberries, raspberries, kiwi and banana)
These pancakes are especially good for pancake day or just for a breakfast treat.
- Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and stir in the sugar.
- In a jug whisk together the egg and milk. Gradually whisk the wet ingredients into the dry, removing any lumps.
- Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter and stir into the mixture.
- Heat a little of the remaining butter in a large non-stick frying pan. Drop 4 tablespoons of the batter into the pan, spacing them out, to make 4 pancakes. (If they do merge together don’t worry you can just have a monster pancake!)
- Cook over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until bubbles burst and stay open on the surface.
- Now for the fun bit! Flip the pancakes! Try and not to drop any on the floor (which I have done before) and cook for a further 2 minutes.
- Then remove from the pan and keep warm. (I usually put them on a plate with a hand towel over them)
- Repeat until you have used all of the batter.
- Serve your pancakes and add any fruit or sauces you desire and enjoy.
