This classic traditional pancake recipe is uniquely South African. We extended our boundaries across the waters and reached out to people who follow our pages on different social media platforms and asked a simple question. Does anyone have a pancake recipe in South Africa?

The response was overwhelming and within minutes we had hundreds of pancake recipes to choose from. We put our chef and editor to the test and came up with this pancake recipe. South Africans are lovely people and they love to share, but we have to admit, some of the submissions we received were quite hilarious.

We were on the hunt for a basic pancake recipe but quickly found out that there are many different variations to this traditional pancake recipe. Some use chicken fillings, other use tuna or seafood fillings, there were even chili con Carne filling suggestions.

We soon realized a trend. Most of the submitted pancake recipes, had the same finishing effect, a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Seeing we all agreed, we stuck to our guns and chose this as the basis for our pancake recipe South Africa.

Most people also shared occasions for eating pancakes and we also found out that most South Africans eat pancakes at church bazaars or on rainy days.

The conclusion is final. We found a rainy-day-church-bazaar-cinnamon-sugar-pancake recipe. We also feel it is only fair to list a few suggestions we received with our pancake recipe submissions.


  1. Leave the pancake batter to stand for one hour before making the pancakes.

  2. You only need to grease the pan used to make the pancakes once.

  3. The first pancake is called (die flop) the tester. It almost always happens. Discard or eat the first pancakes and all the others to follow will come out looking good.

  4. The pancakes freeze well and if you freeze them, do so with wax paper in between the different pancakes.

We did not have the time to test all the suggestions we received, but we can agree with numbers 2 and 3 because no testing is needed, as it just happened.

If you have a good or better suggestion, we would love to hear what it is. Please share your suggestion with us.
