The Basics

Before we delve into the world of the Devon pancake it is key to get the basics right by deciding which type of pancake you like best. Depending on your palate, there are two main recipes that will always be a winner and will form the base of your proper Devon pancake. crepes-355129_1920American Pancakes are much more fluffy and smaller than the traditional crepe and are often seen scoffed in any traditional American Dinner.

The typical ingredients for American Pancakes include:

  • 140g Plain Flour
  • 1tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 tbsp Caster Sugar – white preferably but brown works just as well
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 140ml Milk

Melted butter is then whisked into the batter for an indulgent flavour.


The Traditional Crepe is much simpler to make although they can be a nightmare to flip. This recipe includes:
  • 100g Plain Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 300ml Milk
  • A drizzle of sunflower oil

Heated on a hot pan these pancakes are wonderful to stuff full of amazing treats. Try not to stack these though as they tend to stick together causing a bit of a mess.
