Bring Co-op to your front door

Big Bag Option


  • 125g Co-op plain flour
  • 2 Co-op British eggs
  • 300ml semi skimmed milk
  • 25g Co-op unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 15-20g Co-op unsalted butter
  • To serve:
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges and 6-8 tsp sugar


  1. Sieve the flour into a bowl
  2. This helps take out any lumps in the flour and will add a little air to your pancake mix
  3. Make a hole in the middle of the flour so that you can see the bottom of the bowl – this is called a well
  4. Crack the eggs into a small bowl and then whisk the eggs with a fork
  5. Pour the eggs into the well then stir the eggs with a fork and watch the flour fall into the egg
  6. Don’t be tempted to bring the flour into the eggs, it will gradually fall in on its own
  7. Once the egg mixture is quite thick, whisk in the milk and watch the flour fall gradually into the batter
  8. Mix in the melted butter, cover and leave to stand for about 15 minutes
  9. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add 1 tsp oil and a little of the butter
  10. Spoon a ladleful of the batter into the pan and then carefully move the pan around so that the mixture covers the base of the pan
  11. Cook for a couple of minutes, then flip the pancake with a spatula
  12. Cook for another minute then toss it for fun
  13. Serve with a squeeze of lemon and a little sugar
  14. Repeat with the rest of the batter
