These thick, waffle-like pancakes are made with buttermilk for an extra fluffy texture. Top with your favourite ice cream (we recommend pistachio) and pomegranate seeds for a gorgeous brunch or dessert. Time to up your game this Pancake Day.

Or, go for a stack of pancakes filled with caramelised banana and drizzled with homemade Nutella sauce.


  • 75g plain flour
  • 75g rye flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 30g caster sugar
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 284ml buttermilk
  • Large knob of butter
  • 1 scoop of your favourite ice cream
  • Handful of pomegranate seeds
  • Grating of dark chocolate


  1. In a large bowl, mix the plain flour, rye flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and caster sugar.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the egg with buttermilk. Pour the egg mixture into the flour and beat with a spoon into a smooth, thick batter.
  3. Melt a large knob of butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. Spoon equal amounts of the batter into the pan in 4 separate mounds to make 4 pancakes. Cook gently for 2-3 minutes until golden underneath, then flip and cook for a few minutes more until cooked through. Serve with a scoop of your favourite ice cream (we used pistachio), a handful of pomegranate seeds and a grating of dark chocolate.
