Recipe | The Easy Breezy Weekend Pancake Stack

February 20, 2016

There’s nothing more enjoyable, in my books, than a snoozy Sunday morning followed by pancakes for breakfast. Luckily for me, my partner Sim loves to cook and she often whips up a soft, fluffy pancake stack which is totally Instagram-able. We usually sit out in our courtyard in the sunshine and devour a few pancakes while drinking a cup of coffee and it is my absolute favourite way to spend a Sunday morning.

In saying that, I wanted to share this recipe to inspire you to take some time out from your busy weekend and sit back, relax and indulge in a little pancake-induced heaven. We try to use a few healthier alternatives within this recipe so it’s not such a guilty pleasure! To make this easy, breezy weekend pancake stack you’ll need:

  • 1 & 3/4 cup of milk (we use lactose-free milk but you could use almond, soy, rice or oat milk)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 2 cups of plain flour (you could use buckwheat, wholemeal or coconut flour)
  • 1/3 cup of coconut sugar (you can use normal white sugar but coconut sugar is slightly better for you)


1. Whisk together the milk, eggs and vanilla essence. Place to one side
2. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl and then stir in the sugar
3. Make a well in the middle of your combined dry ingredients, then add all the wet ingredients into the center of the well
4. Whisk the mixture until well combined
(If you’re making this the night before, wrap your mixing bowl in cling film and leave in the fridge overnight. This will make your pancakes super fluffy and light)
5. Once you’re ready to start cookin’ heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat
6. Add a teaspoon of butter (or nut butter/olive oil) to the frying pan and wait for it to start sizzling
7. Add a dollop of pancake batter to the frying pan in whatever shape/size/thickness you desire and wait for small bubbles to form on one side before flipping over to the other
8. Stack these bad boys up and cover with aluminium foil to keep them warm while the rest cook
9. Serve with your favourite condiments (I’m a lemon & sugar kinda gal) and a cup of tea. Bliss.

I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend so far! x
