Who says blind people can’t make pancakes? As it’s pancake day, here’s an easy recipe that you can try out when you settle down to have some pancakes with the family tonight!

Prep time: 30 minutes
Serves 8 pancakes


  • One cup of plain flower
  • One cup of milk
  • Two eggs
  • Butter for oiling the pan
  • Pancake toppings: Maple syrup, lemon juice and sugar etc.


  • Mixing bowl
  • Wisk
  • Measuring cup
  • A small frying pan
  • Spatula or fish slice.


  1. Fill one mug of flower and one mug of milk and put the mixture into your mixing bowl.
  2. Crack the two eggs into the mixing bowl. Whisk the mixture together, until it’s smooth and free of lumps.
  3. Greece your frying pan with the butter, making sure all of the bottom of the pan is covered. Stuck-on pancakes won’t make anyone happy!
  4. Put the pan on the hob to heat up.
  5. When the oil is sizzling, fill your measuring cup with some of the pancake mixture and put it into the pan.
  6. After 1 or 2 minutes, the mixture should harden and take a nice round shape, filling the pan. Slowly place your spatula underneath and turn the pancake over. Yep, sorry, no flipping, (safer that way) but who cares? It’s all about the eating, right?
  7. Give it another minute, making sure the pancake isn’t sticking and then take it out of the pan with your spatula and put it on to your plate.
  8. Let the pancake cool and then pour on your lemon juice and sugar, (my favourite) or whatever topping you wish.
  9. Fold your pancake and you’re ready to eat!

Happy pancake day and happy eating!
