Nuni's Pancakes

Nuni's Pancakes

Nuni is my baby sister, her name is Nuur (means light in Arabic), we nick named her Nuni a while ago and it kinda stuck around, I also call her "titi".

Nuni used to sneak in my room on Sunday's and whisper in my ear: "what's for breakfast?" I would wake up and please her with anything she asked. Except for when she requested pancakes.

It is a weird thing, but I had like a "bad hand" for pancakes, they never fluff up. They were always flat, almost like a crepe but denser.

Nowadays, Nuni is going to turn 16 very soon (oh, Gosh! that makes me feel so old!) and she does her own pancakes, so she shared her recipe with me and guess what?... It worked by some millennial miracle.

This recipe makes 6 to 8 medium pancakes.


1 cup of flour

1 tablespoon of sugar

2 teaspoons of baking powered

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1 egg (beaten)

1 cup of milk

2 tablespoons of cooking oil

3 tablespoons of butter


1. In one bowl mix all the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powdered and salt. In a second bowl the wet ingredients: egg, milk and cooking oil.

2. In a nonstick skilled place a 1/2 tablespoon of butter and with a small ladle measure pancake mixture into the skilled and cook for 4 minutes or until there are bubbles in the surface then turn.


1. I'm not much of a sweet tooth so I made a mix of mango and cherry tomatoes with honey to serve with the pancakes, but the sky is the limit. So go ahead and experiment.
