Flippin’ heck, it’s Shrove Tuesday again!
The weeks are flying by – if you can’t believe it’s almost Pancake Day already, you’re not the only one! Perfect timing to help us warm up after a chilly few days (thanks to Storm Darcy), it’s time to stock up on your toppings and get your best flipping pan at the ready.
Make sure your pancakes stack up
The traditional pancake recipe couldn’t be simpler – plain flour, eggs and milk are all you need for the basic crêpe-style treat. If you fancy going all out with a stack of fluffy American pancakes, you’ll need a little baking power and butter too.
If you want to know our top tried and tested tips for the perfect pancake, read on…
- After you’ve mixed your batter, fridge it for at least an hour – ideal for the lightest of crêpes!
- If you’re a flipper, don’t be tempted to flip too early! We recommend waiting until the edges are brown and your pancake no longer looks shiny.
- Remember, the first pancake is never perfect – think of it as a tester to check the heat of your pan and your batter quantity.
- Finally, our top tip for American pancakes? Try swapping ordinary milk for buttermilk to enjoy extra fluffy stacks.
The final flourish (with a little help from Creamline)
If you fancy a savoury twist, cheese and ham is the perfect pairing – why not try a grating of Cheshire Cheese Co’s finest?
Finally, for the ultimate all American breakfast feast, you can’t go wrong with bacon and maple syrup - we recommend Little Pigs Dids’ delicious smoked streaky bacon.
