How to make the Perfect Pancakes

Hi everyone,
Today I thought I’d post a quick recipe to get you in the mood for Pancake Tuesday! 

I hope you all have your pancakes ready to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I thought since its shrove Tuesday and everyone eats pancakes why not post a simple quick and easy recipe I use to make the perfect pancakes!

Every year for Pancake Tuesday I always buy ingredients to make my own pancakes and also I buy a ready made pack just in case they go wrong but more then less they always turn out right!

I love pancakes and love trying them with different things my favourites would be the simple lemon, golden syrup, butter and sugar. Also I love them served hot with ice cream and chocolate spread. So Yummy!!!! 

You can eat pancakes with really anything like fruits such as  strawberries or even some sweet things like marshmallows and chocolate. Whatever way you like to eat them all you need is this simple recipe to make the perfect one.

What you will need to make the perfect pancakes is:

* 125g / 4oz Plain Flour

* Pinch of Salt

* 1 Egg

* 300ml / 1/2 pint Milk

* Oil for frying

To Serve

* Chocolate Spread

* Ice cream

Or why not try some other tasty toppings such as : Pecan Nuts, Chopped Almonds, Chocolate Chips 100g   


1. Sieve flour and salt into a bowl.

2. Make a well in the centre of the flour, break in the egg and add about a third of the milk. Beat well, gradually pouring in the rest of the milk and drawing in the flour to make a smooth batter.

3. Pour batter into a jug and allow to stand for about 30 minutes.

4. Brush a pancake pan or frying pan with oil. When the pan is hot, give the batter a stir before pouring a thin layer onto the pan.

5. Fry until golden brown. Turn and fry the other side until brown also.

6. Stack pancakes on a large plate, as they are cooked.

7. Spread with chocolate sauce, roll and add ice cream

Tasty Filling Suggestions

1. Dust with Golden caster sugar, add a squeeze of lemon juice, roll up pancake and serve.

2. Drizzled with Honey

3. Fruit served with whipped cream

4. Stewed apples, flavoured with cinnamon and a dollop of fresh cream

5. Diced chicken with salsa sauce

6. Cottage cheese and sliced pineapple

7. Poached egg and Hollandaise sauce

8. Nutella and marshmallows with some ice cream on the side 

I hope you all enjoy eating your pancakes and if anyone try’s to make their own using this recipe let me know 

Much love
