This is for the savoury tooth in the household who is over all the sweet pancake business – loaded pancakes! This easy recipe will take you only 30 minutes to complete from preparation to eating.

Serves 5 – 6

Ingredients for loaded pancakes:


  • 100g (4 oz) plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 225ml (8 fl oz) semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 egg

Filling ingredients:

  • 150 grams of soft cheese
  • 150 grams fresh baby spinach
  • 50 grams of sunflower seeds
  • 1 knob of butter
  • A handful of fresh mushrooms minced in a processor
  • 1 white onion cut in half and sliced thinly-
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 spoon of Salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 4 slices of smoked gouda


  1. Using a sports plastic shaker or a mixing bowl, add all the wet ingredients and shake/mix well. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients and add them to the wet mixture and shake/mix well again.
  2. Add the butter, onions and mushrooms to a frying pan, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to stop it sticking. Then throw in the rest of the ingredients and mix until the spinach starts to go soft and then immediately turn off the heat.
  3. In a 15 cm non-stick pan over medium-high heat, grease with butter and wipe off the access with a paper towel.
    Pour in enough mixture to coat the bottom of the pan, all the way to the edges, and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly brown. And continue this until all the pancakes are cooked.
  4.  Split the filling evenly amongst all the pancakes you have and place the filling in the middle of the pancake and push it to the edge creating a well in the middle of the filling (big enough to hold an egg).
  5. Fold in the edges of the pancake until it looks square. And crack an egg into the middle of the filling and place a slice of cheese over the top of the egg and bake at 180 degrees for 12 minutes. Shake the pan to check if the egg is cooked enough, if not, just pop it back in for another 2 minutes.
