Happy Pancake Day!!

We love the simple things in life and here is a simple pancake recipe for today’s celebrations… wherever you are, at home or on holiday, enjoy making (and eating) these delicious pancakes!

  • 100g (4oz) plain flour, sifted
  • pinch salt
  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 250ml (9fl oz) milk
  • 50g (2oz) butter, melted mixed with a little veg oil.
Ingredients for pancakes or crepes.

This is all you need for yummy pancakes

and to serve…

  • lemon wedges
  • caster sugar

First whisk the eggs and milk in a jug, leave in the fridge.

Next sift the flour into a bowl, add the pinch of salt, making a well in the centre. Gradually add the egg/milk mixture into the well and, using an electric whisk or a wooden spoon, draw the flour from the edges to create a smooth batter. Leave to stand for 30 minutes.


Always throw the first one away

Heat a frying pan to hot, reduce to medium heat and brush lightly with melted butter/oil. Allow around 1 – 2tbsp of mix for each pancake. Turn once golden on the underside then cook until light brown.  Serve with a little lemon juice and castor sugar.  Delicious!
