Pancake Recipe: A Lyle’s Classic

The gorgeous, caramelised flavours of our famous Lyle’s Golden Syrup make these pancakes irresistible.


Ingredients (Yields 15 pancakes)

  • 110g (4oz) plain flour
  • 275ml (10floz) full fat milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil, plus butter for frying
  • Lyle’s Golden Syrup, to serve
  • 1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges, optional

Just a few quick steps to breakfast magic, Lyle’s style:

  1.  Sift the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre – then pour the vegetable oil, egg yolk, milk and egg into a jug and lightly beat together. Gradually add this to the well in the flour,  whilst whisking and slowly drawing in the flour until you have a smooth batter. Then pour the mixture back into the jug.
  2.  Cook the pancakes with a 18cm (7”) non-stick frying pan. Pop it on a medium-high heat until it produces a slight haze. Melt a small amount of butter in the pan and pour in about 2 tablespoons of batter, then swirl in a circle to make sure the batter evenly coats the pan.
  3.  Fry for about 20-30 seconds – until the batter is set, giving a golden-brown pancake. Loosen the edges, then give the pan a little shake. Now flip the pancake and cook for a further 20 seconds.
  4.  Fold the pancakes loosely onto a plate and drizzle with Lyle’s Golden Syrup – serve with lemon wedges for a citrus kick.

Cereal Pancakes

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Bring some fun to your morning with these mini pancakes.

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 1 egg
  • 110g plain flour
  • 115ml whole milk
  • 40g melted butter
  • 2tsp oil, plus some more for cooking
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2tsp Lyle’s Golden Syrup, plus more for serving
  • 2tsp baking powder


  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a blender or with a whisk. Let it rest for 5-10min – this will result in fluffier pancakes. The batter shouldn’t be too liquid but also not too thick as you will not be able to pipe out mini pancakes.
  2. Pour the pancake batter into a piping bag or a sauce bottle. If using a bag snip it at the end just enough to squeeze out the pancake batter easily.
  3. Place a non-stick frying pan on medium heat, you can either grease with butter or oil and heat until hot.
  4. Squeeze out the batter into the hot pan (about 1 pound size) making sure they are not touching one another.
  5. Cook the pancakes until they start to bubble, after about 30 seconds flip them using a spatula or chopsticks. The mini pancakes should be golden brown before you flip, continue to cook the other side for another 30 seconds.
  6. Serve in two bowls, drizzle over generously with Lyle‘s Golden Syrup and fruit of your choice if you like and eat while still warm. You can eat them just like cereal, covered with milk or simply with a spoon on their own!
