Ditch the packet version and make your own pancakes in just four steps! You’re welcome.


1 3/4 cups (435ml) milk
1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg
2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
1/4 tsp Coles Bicarbonate Soda
20g butter, melted
Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, to serve
Mixed berries, to serve
Maple syrup, to serve


  1. Whisk milk and egg in a large jug.
  2. Place the flour, sugar and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl and stir until well combined. Make a well in the centre. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and use the whisk to stir until a smooth batter forms. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 30 mins to rest.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Brush with a little melted butter. Pour ΒΌ cup (60ml) of the batter into the pan. Cook for 1-2 mins or until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake. Turn and cook for a further 1 min or until light golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter and melted butter to make 14 pancakes.
  4. Divide the pancakes among serving plates. Top with a dollop of cream or a scoop of ice cream. Top with berries. Drizzle with maple syrup.
