These light and fluffy pancakes are perfection thanks to self-rising flour! With only 4 ingredients and no baking powder or baking soda, you can have these pancakes ready to eat in just 10 minutes!


  • 2  1/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons sugar


  1. Mix the self-rising flour and sugar in a mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredient and mix to combine. The batter will be slightly lumpy but that is okay!
  4. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium high heat. Spray with nonstick spray.
  5. Pour 1/3 cup of batter onto the hot pan. Let the pancake cook 2-3 minutes or until the top surface begins to bubble and the edges are set.
  6. Flip the pancake and cook an additional 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.


Over-mixing pancakes is a sure-fire way to get a tough texture. Mix until just combined, some lumps are okay!

To freeze pancakes allow them to cool then place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet in the freezer. Once frozen transfer to a freezer bag for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave.
