Flapjacks (crumpets, pancakes, griddlecakes)

Flapjacks are a quick, easy and tasty breakfast or lunch especially when served with crispy bacon, grated cheese and syrup or honey.  They are equally as yummy as a tea time treat served with a berry jam and lightly whipped cream.  The recipe works well doubled and even tripled – it’s one of those fail-proof “go-to” recipes.




1½ cups self raising flour
10ml sugar
1.5ml salt
1 egg beaten
¼ cup milk
½ cup water


  1. Sieve the flour into a bowl and add the sugar and salt.
  2. Combine the egg, milk and water together in a jug.
  3. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and combine until just mixed.  The mixture will look lumpy.
  4. Place spoonfuls into a lightly oiled pan over a medium low heat and when they start to bubble turn for a few seconds until cooked through and golden brown on both sides.
