James Street Collective Pancakes Recipe

Whilst we can't be brunching in Gentlemen Baristas the team behind the Covent Garden pop up have shared their breakfast pancake recipe.

Gentlemen Barista 67


  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 300ml full-fat milk
  • 100g plain flour
  • 25g caster sugar
  • A little rapeseed oil to cook
  1. Whisk the egg and milk in a large bowl, then incorporate the flour and sugar
  2. Rub out a frying pan with some rapeseed oil using a kitchen towel and bring to a medium heat
  3. Pour some of the batter into the pan and immediately drain any excess back into the mixing bowl
  4. Cook each crepe for 2 minutes on the first side and 1 minute on the second side
  5. Once all of the batter is used up, pile the crepes on a plate and cover with cling film to soften
  6. Our favourite way to serve these, with topped with whipped creme fraiche and toffee apple plonked on top!
