Pancake Day

Pancake Day is the day we can eat as many pancakes as want, and not feel guilty about it. Whether you like your pancakes traditionally English (thin and crepes-like), or thick and American-style, we have the best toppings for your Pancake Day this Tuesday 9th February 2016.

But first, how to make the perfect pancake?

Perfect Pancake Mix

You can make in advance and chill for up to eight hours before use.

Makes 8-10 pancakes

  • 75g/3oz plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 150ml/1⁄4pt milk
  • A little oil for frying
To serve:
3 lemons

Place the flour, salt and eggs in a large bowl with half the milk. Whisk until lump-free.
Add the remaining milk and whisk until smooth. Or place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend. Pour the mixture into a jug.
Heat a 20cm/8in diameter non-stick frying pan, drizzle a little oil in the centre and spread it around with a piece of scrunched kitchen paper.
Pour a little batter into the pan and immediately tilt to spread it thinly and evenly.
Cook for 2 minutes or until the top is set and the base golden. Turn the pancake over with a spatula – or, if you are feeling brave, flip!
Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the base of the pancake is golden. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Interleave with greaseproof paper as you make a stack.

Squeeze lemon juice and sprinkle sugar on the pancake, roll and serve.


Great! Now that's done, we can move onto the perfect toppings, whether you fancy a breakfast pancake, a sweet pancake, or a savoury one:
