Beer Pancakes

A very simple recipe using beer which produces a lovely light batter.  


  • 1 cup all flour (sifted)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup beer
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¾ Teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter (melted)


Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder & salt in a large bowl. Pour in the egg, beer & melted butter & whisk until blended. If you don’t have a whisk handy, as fork is fine.

Heat a flat based skillet over medium heat. Use a little extra butter on the skillet before spooning about ¼ cup of the batter (per pancake) onto the pan. Once bubbles appear on the top, flip to cook the other side.

Serve with your favourite pancake topping & enjoy!
