Pancake Day

Pancake Day

It’s nearly Pancake Day and if that doesn’t excite you enough you need some serious medical attention. I always used to make these on Pancake day when I was little and eat them with just a bit of lemon juice and sugar, but I’m a grown up now so I decided to go with something a bit more decadent: blueberry compote and whipped cream.

For your pancakes you need:

  • 110g plain white flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 200ml milk (I used skimmed)
  • 2 tablespoons of cold water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter

Whisk everything together until you have a lump-free batter that’s thick but still runny. Get a pan nice and hot and melt a tiny knob of butter, making sure the whole base is covered. Add a few spoons of your pancake batter and swirl it around the pan. Try to make a nice, even pancake but don’t worry about it too much. After a few minutes lift the edges up with a spatula and if it looks cooked DO THE FUN BIT!!!!


So glamorous.

Pancake Day

Slip it on to a plate and get cracking on the next one. (You can keep them warm in a VERY low oven if you want to be social and sit down and eat with people.)

Shove on a load of your topping of choice and VOILĂ€! Your Shrove Tuesday is made. Tuck in.

    I do love tefal pans. I have one of their frying pans and their wok and they are my go to pans. Mind you I did have to buy them myself. For pancakes I just use the 1egg, 1cup of flour and 1cup of milk recipe. I must try American pancakes one day

      We’ve got a Tefal wok but I haven’t used it yet, looks goooood though. I will have to try that – this is just what’s written down in the back of my mum’s very old “household management” book.
