Calories 210 kcal


  • Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Pastry bag/Piping bag or Plastic bag
  • Frying pan


  • 1 medium-sized Egg
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • ½ cup Milk
  • ½ tsp Vanilla essence
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt


  • Prepare the Batter:
    1. In a mixing bowl, crack the egg. Ensure the egg is at room temperature for smoother blending.
    2. Add ¼ cup of sugar to the bowl with the egg, then beat them together until well combined.
    3. Gradually pour in 2 tbsp of oil, ½ cup of milk, and ½ tsp of vanilla essence while whisking continuously until the mixture is smooth.
    4. Add 1 cup of flour, 1 tsp of baking powder, and ¼ tsp of salt to the bowl, then mix until a smooth batter forms.
    5. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in tough pancakes. If the batter appears too thick, you can add a little more milk until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Transfer Batter:
    1. Transfer the prepared pancake batter into a pastry bag/piping bag, or a sturdy plastic bag. If using a plastic bag, snip off a small corner to create a makeshift piping bag.
  • Heat the Pan:
    1. Place a non-stick frying pan or griddle over medium-low heat. Allow the pan to preheat for a few minutes until evenly heated.
    2. Once the pan is adequately heated, lightly grease it with a small amount of oil or non-stick cooking spray.
    3. Holding the piping bag or plastic bag containing the batter, gently squeeze and pipe small rounds of batter onto the preheated pan to form mini pancakes, ensuring they are evenly spaced apart.

Mini Pancake Recipe Tips

  1. Use a room-temperature egg for smoother blending and better batter consistency.
  2. Mix ingredients until just combined to keep pancakes fluffy.
  3. If the batter seems too thick, gradually add more milk until you reach the desired consistency. A thinner batter results in lighter pancakes.
  4. Preheat the frying pan or griddle over medium-low heat before cooking the pancakes. This ensures even cooking and prevents sticking.
  5. Use a non-stick pan or griddle to prevent sticking and achieve golden pancakes.
  6. Cooking the pancakes on low to medium heat prevents them from burning while ensuring they cook through evenly.
  7. Use a spatula to flip pancakes gently to maintain their shape.
