Today my blog turns 1…So I celebrate with pancakes.

Today marks one year for my blog! I have to say this is quite exciting for me. This year has been amazing and I have had the opportunity to meet and work with some amazing people along the way.

When I realized today was coming up, I wanted to post something in celebration.

I love brunch; it is my favourite meal of the day (the lucky days when it occurs) so I figured I should make myself a delicious brunch.

My food stylist Mia Antonia shared an incredible fluffy, light and delicious pancake recipe with me on a shoot one day. We made it on the spot and devoured it as soon as the photographer was done.

So I decided that today = pancakes…

Basic Pancake Recipe


1 cup flour
Pinch of Bicarb soda
¼ cup of caster sugar
¾ cup of milk
1 egg


Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, create a well in the centre.

Whisk the milk and egg together in a separate bowl. Pour into the well of the dry ingredients and stir to combine.

Spoon desired amounts of the mixture into a hot, buttered and slightly oiled non-stick frying pan. Then, in the words of Mia herself “fry in far too much butter”.

In an attempt to make these more delicious than they already are, I served them with cinnamon butter and blueberries.

(Cinnamon Butter: Spoon desired amount of butter into a small bowl and add cinnamon to taste – it can usually take quite a bit, add sugar if you want a sweeter butter.)

So there you have it, a delicious pancake recipe that is so easy and will give you fluffy pancakes every time, and don’t skimp on the butter…its just not right J
