Answers For Pancake Problems

Updated: Feb 15

Pancake recipe ingredient list

(makes 8 pancakes)

100g (4oz) Plain flour

1 egg

300 ml (1/2 pint) milk



I have half a dozen eggs that I'd like to use up on pancake day.

How much of each ingredient do I need? How many pancakes will my new recipe serve if I use half a dozen eggs?


I need to multiply each ingredient by 6

6 X 1 egg = 6 eggs

6 X 100g plain flour= 600g plain flour or 6 x 4oz plain flour = 24 oz plain flour

6 X 300ml milk = 1800 ml or 1.8 l or 6 X ½ pint = 3 pints milk

6 X 8 pancakes = 48 pancakes

How much of each ingredient do I need?

Problem 1 Pancake recipe ingredient list

(makes 48 pancakes)

600g (24 oz) Plain flour

6 eggs

1800 ml/ 1.8 litres (3 pints) milk

How many pancakes will my new recipe serve if I use half a dozen eggs?

If I use half a dozen eggs then I will serve 48 pancakes

Problem 2:

This time I want to make 40 pancakes.
List the quantity of each ingredient.


I need to multiply each ingredient by 5

5 x 8 pancakes = 40 pancakes

5 x 100g = 500g or ½ kg or 5 x 4oz = 20 oz Plain flour

5 x 1 egg = 5 eggs

5 x 300 ml = 1500ml or 1 ½ litres milk or (5 x ½ pint = 2 ½ pints) milk

Problem 2 Pancake recipe ingredient list

(makes 40 pancakes)

500g/ ½ kg (20z) Plain flour

5 eggs

1500ml/ 1 ½ litres (2 ½ pints) milk

Please note I’ve rounded the milk to the nearest ½ pint.
