American-style Coffee Pancakes

It’s pancake day so it is only right we make pancakes but with a coffee twist. These light and fluffy American-style pancakes have a rich but subtle coffee flavour that is bound to be a crowd-pleaser. This recipe uses our signature Firehouse Espresso with notes of chocolate, forest fruits and cinnamon, flavours that will go perfectly with your breakfast pancakes.

  • 200g self-raising flour 
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar 
  • 3 large eggs
  • 25g melted butter
  • 150ml milk
  • 50ml (a double espresso) of Firehouse Espresso
  • Coconut or vegetable oil, for cooking


  1. Sift the flour into the bowl and add the baking powder and caster sugar.
  2. Create a well in the centre of your dry ingredients then crack your eggs along with the melted butter, milk and finally the espresso.
  3. Use a whisk to mix your batter well until there are no lumps. The batter should be a nice golden colour from the coffee.
  4. Heat a very small amount of coconut oil in a non-stock frying pan on a medium heat. Dollop two tablespoons of batter in the pan to get the perfect-sized pancakes. Cook the pancakes on one side for around 1-2 mins or until little bubbles start to appear and pop on the surface. Flip the pancakes over and cook for a further minute or 2 on the other side. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
  5. Serve with whatever toppings you like – we suggest berries, cinnamon and chocolate sauce (to match the flavour notes of our Firehouse espresso).
