The Strike Jobs 5 step plan to the perfect American style Pancakes


Strike Jobs Pancake


We all know looking for a new job can be stressful, and a tasty, well deserved meal after a hard days job hunting is the perfect recipe to relax and unwind.

Pancakes were first invented as a way to use up the milk, eggs and butter in the home before Lent. Lent is often a time for giving up, but it can also be a time for starting something new, like finding the perfect new job and leaving your old career behind.

Here is our Strike Jobs Recipe for some cracking American Style Pancakes:


  • 135g/4¾oz plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 130ml/4½fl oz milk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp melted butter (allowed to cool slightly) plus extra for cooking
To serve:
  • Maple syrup
  • Butter

Plus your choice of:

  • Frozen Berries
  • Whipped Cream
  • Ice Cream
  • Bacon (yes, really)

Easy 5 step-method:

  1. Using a sieve, sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or mug, whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.
  2. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Let the batter stand for a few minutes to thicken.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a little butter. When it’s melted, add a ladle of batter. It will be quite thick but don’t worry, that’s the secret to a great fluffy pancake. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then flip it over (with a spatula or if you’re feeling brave try and flip it) and cook until both sides are golden brown in colour and the pancake has risen to about 1cm (½in) thick.
  4. Repeat until you have as many pancakes as you need. You can keep the pancakes warm in a low-heated oven, but they always taste best straight from the pan.
  5. Then it’s your choice, sweet or savoury. We recommend you try Bacon, Ice cream and maple syrup. Sounds like it shouldn’t work but it’s lip-smacklingly delicious. Of course they are just as tasty with some frozen berries and ice cream or just a simple mix of maple syrup and butter.

Bon Appetit!
