A trendy coffee shop in George that belonged to my mother in law, served these fluffy, melt in the mouth flapjacks. She could never make them fast enough for all the tourists and local clients.

My three daughters love these, especially on a weekend morning. You can serve these flapjacks drizzled with golden syrup or honey.

Prep time


Cooking time



6 – 8

Total time




  • 3 eggs

  • 125 ml sugar

  • 250 ml milk

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • 2 cups flour

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 50 ml cooking oil


  • Beat the eggs and sugar. Drizzle the melted butter into the mixture. Mix the dry ingredients gradually with the milk. Do not over mix.
  • Heat a frying pan on medium-low heat, to prevent flapjacks from getting overly brown. Add a tablespoon of oil.
  • Pour heaped spoonfuls of the dough in the hot pan. Not more than 4 at a time. When the flapjack forms a bubble and pops, turn them over.
  • Served the flapjacks with butter, syrup, honey, bacon, berries or cheese.
