  • 240 g self-raising flour
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 50 g sugar, or 65g for sweeter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 free-range eggs, separated
  • bananas, to serve
  • creamed honey, to serve

Cooking Instructions

Mix the flour, salt, sugar, milk and egg yolks to form a thick, smooth batter. Make sure not to over mix.

Beat egg whites to a soft peak and gently fold into the batter. It will be a thick batter, but they make for the fluffiest flapjacks!

Fry spoonfuls of batter for 2 minutes on one side in a lightly greased pan over a medium heat. When the batter starts to make holes, carefully flip and they'll fluff up. Flip again and cook until lightly golden.

If the batter is too thick, add 1 T milk at a time to loosen to your preference.

Cook's note: These flapjacks are best eaten raw!
For banana flapjacks, top the raw side of the flapjack with slices of banana, then turn and cook the other side.
Serve with creamed honey (which can be bought at selected Woolworths stores or delis, or simply whip regular honey until creamy white).

    This recipe is very easy and delicious. The gram quantity for the flour is incorrect though, it should be 220g and not 140g. I would recommend doubling up the recipe for 4 people.

    Terrible recipe ! Absolutely awful.
    First of all, 140g is NOT a cup.
    Secondly, this mixture is so far from thick it’s almost like water. It’s at least two cups of flour, definitely not 140g of flour.
    It’s alright once you’ve added flour to make it thick. Definitely not one I will ever be trying again

    Mine was a huge success. Adjusted the flour for a slightly thicker batter. Not rocket science. Now my go-to flap jack recipe. In fact I prefer it to my old plaatkoekies recipe ;)

    I agree. It’s far from a thick or smooth batter.

    Horrible recipe – this must be a joke really. Please search for “plaatkoekies” in Google in see how real flapjacks are made.
