• Need a recipe for brunch? Here’s an easy peasy, lemon-squeezy South African flapjack recipe. Serve with your topping of choice: any sweet condiment (syrup, honey or jam) paired with whipped cream and fresh fruit is a personal favourite.

    Makes 8-10 medium-sized flapjacks. 


    3 cups of cake flour
    3 tablespoons of sugar
    1 teaspoon of salt
    2 levelled teaspoons of baking powder
    1 egg
    2 cups of milk (you can substitute with on-dairy alternatives)
    1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
    2 tablespoons of cooking oil


    1.Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, sugar, salt, baking powder)

    2.Whisk egg, vanilla essence and milk in a separate bowl

    3.Slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Try pouring and stirring in stages instead of adding it together all at once

    4.Stir until you have a thick, smooth batter

    5.Add cooking oil (or melted butter if you prefer) to the batter

    6.Add oil or butter to your pan, and fry your pancakes!
