Thermomix Pantry Pancakes Recipe (no leaving the house!)

Thermomix Pantry Pancakes Recipe (no leaving the house!)

You know those lazy weekend mornings… you’d love a sweet pancake stack for breakfast, but the thought of leaving the house for ingredients just kills the dream (who wants to change out of pyjamas!). Well that was me recently… empty fridge and freezer - not even a slice of bread to be found! And pancakes were calling me. So, I set about creating a pancake recipe that you and I can whip up any time, without leaving the house! Using ingredients I always have in the pantry… making life just that little bit easier is always my motto. These are soft, sweet and fluffy… frankly, they taste a lot like the ‘shaker’ pancake mixes from the supermarket, but without the price tag, the crappy added ingredients and the waste.

My favourite thermie pancake recipe ever is still my ‘fluffy pancakes’, page 221 of Thermo Cooker Fresh Favourites, but the below recipe will definitely be hitting the heavy rotation! Enjoy xx

Serves 2 (can be doubled)

+ vegetarian
+ vegan (option)
+ dairy free (option)
+ nut free (option)
+ soy free (option)
+ egg free


200g plain flour
50g sugar (any type, I used raw)
2½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp fine salt
250g milk (any type, I used oat)  
20g oil (macadamia, olive or other light-flavoured oil)
2 tsp vinegar (white or apple cider)
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Butter or oil, to fry


  1. Place flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in TC bowl, mix for 5 seconds, speed 3.
  2. Add milk, oil, vinegar and vanilla, mix for 10 seconds, speed 3. Scrape down sides and base of TC bowl using silicone spatula.
  3. Mix for a further 5 seconds, speed 3. The batter should still have small lumps. Refrigerate batter for up to 12 hours, or begin cooking immediately.
  4. Heat frying pan on medium heat. Swirl ½ teaspoon butter or oil to grease pan.
  5. Using a ladle or cup, spoon pancake batter into pan. When pancake forms bubbles on top, flip over and cook until golden in colour (total time approx. 4 minutes).
  6. Repeat with remaining batter, keeping cooked pancakes in oven covered with foil or in a food warmer.

Serve warm with fresh fruit, poached fruit, maple syrup, honey, chocolate, cream, ice cream, yoghurt, nuts… or whatever you’ve can put your hands on!
