traditional flapjacks

During the holiday’s there is nothing better than sharing a delicious cooked breakfast with family and friends. There is just something special about the way food brings us all closer together.

While my family was staying with me, we decided to make some traditionally American flapjacks for breakfast…one of my favourites as it is like having dessert for breakfast but it’s allowed! They are soft and delicious and the perfect comfort food…yum! I adapted the recipe below from Yuppiechef’s Spatula.

These flapjacks are simple to make and oh so delicious! In my humble opinion they are best served with some old fashioned maple syrup.

  • 1 cup all-purpose or cake flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted


  1. Mix the dry ingredients together into a mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl beat the egg, adding in the milk and butter until well combined.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and beat well till the batter is blended.
  4. The batter will be slightly lumpy, but that’s fine. Let the mixture rest for about 20 minutes.
  5. Heat a large frying pan on a medium heat. Spoon the batter onto the frying pan, using approximately 2 tablespoons of batter per flapjack.
  6. Cook till bubbles form on the surface and then turn the flapjacks over and cook for another few minutes, or until nicely browned.
  7. Serve with some bacon and maple syrup.
