Learning how to make pancakes has become a family tradition in home kitchens around the world – easy for the kids to get involved, yet still full of flavours loved by adults.
There are few experiences as satisfying as successfully flipping a pancake. Perfecting the graceful turnover is an art unto itself, passed down through generations with great frustration (and often hilarious memories). Luckily, even a failed attempt still holds the delicious reward of sweet, light, and ever-so-sophisticated flavours.
Whether you’re a fan of classic cinnamon, sugar and lemon, or are looking for a more sophisticated option, we’ve collected our favourite pancake recipes from around the world. Butter the pans, turn the heat up and start practising that flipping:

Customise your own
The best thing about our favourite pancake recipe? You can customise it for each member of your family. While the pancake is cooking, sprinkle over fresh blueberries or sweet chocolate chips. Want something more suprising? Pre-freeze discs of Nutella, place on top of your pancake in the pan and top with more pancake batter. The result? Deliciously gooey Nutella pancakes.
Cooking your pancakes to perfection
With a little bit of help from the NEFF Flameselectâ gas cooktop we’ve made it easy to make perfect pancakes. With 9 individual power settings, you’ve got plenty of heat settings to choose from. We’d recommend heating your frying pan with 1 teaspoon of butter on level 7 for two minutes. Then turn your cooktop down to FlameSelect level 3 and cook our pancakes for 60 – 80 seconds on each side.
Using an induction cooktop? Don’t worry! You can still achieve delicious pancakes. Simply cook your pancakes on level 5 on your NEFF induction cooktop for a consistently cooked batch.
