Easy Pancakes with Maple Syrup, Fresh Strawberries & Bacon

One morning I woke up reminiscing over my dream of eating pancakes – the sweet sticky maple syrup on soft layers of fluffy pancakes… I knew I had to do something to fix my craving!

Then I realised I didn’t have pancake mix (I love White Wings brand) in my pantry. Oh no….!
So I put on my DIY cap and fall back to my all-time reliable Google search – and man, there were thousands of recipes out there to pick from.

Anyway I found this very simple recipe with a title like “Grandma’s best old recipe” or something, and because it was simple I decided to give it a try. I accidentally modified the recipe due to my bad sense of measurement reading  – always reading wrongly on teaspoon/tablespoon.


Pancakes for him – with panfried bacon glazed with maple syrup.
 Pancakes for me – topped with punnets of strawberries (yey…they are in season!) and drizzled with lotsa maple. Missing out of the dollops of cream though :(


  • 1 1/4 cup (300ml) milk
  • 1 1/2 cup (180g) plain flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (I accidentally used 1 tablespoon instead)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar (more if you like it sweet)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 3 tablespoon of butter


  1. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together in a mixing bowl.
  2. Make a well in the middle, crack the egg, pour the milk in, add the butter and mix it well. If there’s clumps of butter, don’t worry about it.
  3. Rest for 5 mins before heating up a non-stick pan.
  4. Use a ladle and pour slowly to form a circle, let it sit on the pan till you see little bubbles forming and then flip it to the other side.
