This pancake recipe makes a large batch. They are sturdy and delicious. And practically foolproof. Which is why it has been a staple and quick go to recipe for us for decades of family life. The perfect thing to whip up on a rainy afternoon. Ingredients:

  • 4 cups water

  • 4 eggs

  • 1/2 cup Sunflower oil

  • 1/4 cup vinegar - we usually use white/red wine vinegar

-Beat these ingredients together in a mixer Then add:

  • 4 cups of Plain Flour

  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

  • 1 tablespoon Sugar

- Mix everything together until it forms a smooth batter. We always start up our baking with just a tablespoon of oil in the pan to smooth things over. Then pour a ladleful into the pan. Turning it around to cover the pan. Wait until the bubbles come through and the top of the pancake is dry. Then turn over. Do this another couple of dozen times. Enjoy!
