Create the perfect pancakes

27 February 2019


Get yourself sorted this Pancake Day with our easy recipe and make your celebration look pretty with our styling suggestions.


Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day, falls on 5 March this year. What do you need in order to ace the day? Well, a foolproof pancake mix recipe is a good place to start, and you might want to consider picking up some stylish new tableware for the occasion, too.


To make 12 pancakes, you need

110g plain flour

2 eggs

200ml milk (you can use oat, soya or coconut milk, instead)

75ml water

50g butter

A pinch of salt

A sprinkling of sugar

Lemon zest or juice

A set of measuring cups

A set of scales

A bowl for mixing

A spoon, or spatula

A frying or crepe pan

A serving plate

The method

1. Add the plain flour to your mixing bowl and crack both eggs into the middle of the flour. Begin mixing the eggs and the flour together with a spoon or spatula.


2. Next, start adding the 200ml of milk to the mixture. Mix well for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is lump-free.


3. At this stage, you can add the 75ml of water. But add this slowly, and be careful not to make the mixture too runny. Sprinkle both a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar into the mixture. You’re now ready to start cooking.


4. Melt the butter in a hot pan, and then add a small quantity of mixture into the centre, until it spreads to the edge.


5. Repeat until your mixture is used up, and flip your pancakes regularly to avoid any burning.


6. Lastly, enjoy mixing and matching different toppings such as classic lemon and sugar, or hazelnut chocolate spread and strawberries. Raspberries, blueberries, sliced oranges, lemon and lime all taste great with pancakes, too.
