Flapjack Recipe With Honey – “My Simple, Yet Exquisite Breakfast!”

Flapjacks With Honey

My Simple “Pancake” Flapjack Recipe With Honey

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 5 tbsp of Pancake mix
  • 1 Egg
  • 20ml Milk (or As Desired)
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil (for Mixture)
  • 4 tbsp Honey (or Syrup)

Kitchenware Needed

  • Non-stick Frying Pan
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Whisk (or Fork)
  • Scooping Spoon

Directions

1. Break the egg into a bowl and whisk. Add milk and oil. Now, mix them well with the whisk or fork

2. In a second bowl, pour your pancake mix, and make a hole in between.

3. Thereafter, you pour in your liquid mixture and mix.

4. Make sure the batter is a bit thick to make that fluffy flapjack pancake just like mine in the picture.

5. Let it sit for about 5 minutes.

6. As the batter sits, place a non-stick frying pan on your stove (or, a pancake maker).

7. Switch on the stove to medium heat, lightly oil the pan. And, let it heat up.

8. Scoop a spoon of the mixture into the pan.

9. Wait till bubbles are formed on the pancake. That’s a sign that your pancake is formed together and can be flipped without creating a mess.

10. Now you flip it over and wait till it is golden brown (typically after a minute or two).

11. And, there you have it, a simple flapjack

12. Serve with honey or syrup, and enjoy your meal.

Quick Tips

  • Do not over mix to make your pancake fluffy. In fact, having lumps in it should be okay. If it is well mixed, it will turn out chewy rather than fluffy.
  • A thin batter would make a thin crepe pancake. Remember these are flapjacks, so make sure your batter is thick.
  • To avoid the flipping hassle or decided when to flip, you should consider using a double-sided non-stick frying pan instead.
  • Add a bit of cinnamon powder to your batter for an added flavor.
  • You can take it further by adding some tiny chopped nuts or dates, and vegetables like a carrot.
  • You may swap out the pancake mix for all-purpose flour if you don’t want sugar. Remember to include baking powder in the ingredients!
  • To know if your oil is hot enough for the batter, simply place your palm on top of the pot to feel the heat. Careful not to get burnt, okay!
  • For a perfectly made and time-efficient flapjacks, you may want to invest in a pancake maker.

  1. Very nice detailed information on how to make the perfect flapjack. I like your suggestion of swapping out the pancake mix for all purpose flour to avoid the sugar. I try to minimize my intake of refined sugar as I know how unhealthy it is. I would also be sure to use raw, unheated honey, as this is by far the healthiest, and most harmless form of honey. I may have to try this out in the near future. Thank you for sharing, Tom

    1. Good choice of honey, Tom.
      I also use raw unfiltered honey.

      To more delicacy moments!

    Hello Tohin – You are a person after my own heart!!  I love pancakes.  They are something that I have had a passion for since my childhood.  I have to admit though, I haven’t been very creative with them.  I’ve been using a complete mix, just adding water!  Now, with this recipe, I can be!

    Many thanks for this opportunity!

      Glad you could find my recipe inspire your creative minds in the kitchen, Nathaniel!

      Keep having fun-talizing time in the kitchen, okay.😋

    I absolutely love honey on pancakes. Growing up, that was what my mom actually used instead of syrup, and I didn’t get to taste syrup on pancakes until I was older. The honey really adds a fine twist to the pancakes taste, and smells really nice. Glad to see other people use honey on their pancakes as well!

      Hello @delroaustria,

      It feels so good to meet someone that have similar taste buds as oneself, I also love honey (prefer it to syrup as well) with my pancakes, especially when its flapjacks.

      But, I have some other ways I love to enjoy my pancakes aside from having honey as the side dip.

      Thanks for tuning in and sharing your nostalgic experience with us!😊😋

    Oh, how I love pancakes! I like the combination of the baked flour and the sweet-tasting honey.

    Now, with regard to using this recipe you’ve shared, I’d like to ask about those ingredients that are not available here in my country. Like for example, Olive Oil, you can rarely find such oil here. Can I use a substitute for the Olive Oil described in the recipe? If I use a replacement ingredient, will it not affect the taste?

    1. Tohin says:

      Hey dear Gomer,

      Go ahead, use whatever oil you have available to you in your country, it definitely would not alter the taste that much (it might not even be noticeable). 

      The only thing that would have a significant change in the tase is if you use savoury ingredients, and that itself is completely fine as far as savoury is the theme/taste you are going for.

      There are many different ways to make pancakes, flapjacks, and even crepes, and I would love to share many more of those recipes with you all with time. 

      So, stay tuned, okay!😊😋

    Using a pancake mix is great indeed when you don’t have the time. I sometimes make crepes and I hate the time I’ve got to spend in front of the stove to do each crepes and you’ve got to make many of them cause they are thinner than pancakes. I never thought of using nuts nor carrots, that’s a great idea and it makes it a complete nutricious meal!! I will certainly try to make this recipe instead of crepes for a change. I’ve got a crepe maker but is it the same as a pancake maker ? Thank you!

    1. Tohin says:

      Hello @ fityourselfbarre,

      You can definitely use your crepe make to make the flapjacks pancakes, just that it would take longer time to make lots of flapjacks, also there would a difference in the consistency of your batter.

      Like I have mentioned, when it comes to making flapjacks, your batter would be thicker plus there would be a raising agent like bicarbonate of soda in the mix, unlike with crepe whose batter is quite very thin and the mix having no raising agent.

      But, if time efficiency is what you desire the most from your pancakes or flapjacks maker, here’s an example of a maker that would help you make lots of flapjacks, about four or even 7 moulds (depending on the one you go for) of flapjacks at a time.

      Hope this helps!

    Well, my slight hunger has become extreme. I love pancakes and flap jacks so putting them together with such a simple and easy to follow recipe is perfect. Thank you. This is a great post and one that I will be introducing to our family who are all flap jack and pancake fans.

    1. Tohin says:

      Yeah, that’s the spirit, Steve!

      It feels good to meet another pancakes lover like myself. 

      Hope you and your family have fun with my recipe and keep having a flap-talizing moment! 😋
