Shrove Tuesday "Pancake Day", what will you be doing today?

Pancake Day, is a celebration of fluffy delights, bringing the family together in kitchens worldwide. The perfect pancake, a golden masterpiece, emerges from a simple batter of flour, eggs, milk, and a pinch of magic.

As the batter sizzles in the pan, the aroma dances through the air, tantalising taste buds with promises of delight. Whether adorned with a cascade of maple syrup, a sprinkle of sugar, or a squeeze of lemon, each pancake becomes your own to enjoy as you like it.

Everyone will look forward to the traditional Flipping of the pancake, with each flip, anticipation builds until, at last, the pancake lands flawlessly on the plate, ready to be devoured. With every bite, celebrate the tradition and the joy of savouring each delicious moment.

140g Plain Flour Sieved

200ml Milk

2 Eggs

Oil or Butter to fry

Sift the flour into a bowl

add milk and eggs, slowly whisk to make a smooth batter. (Add a pinch of salt if you wish).

TIP - Allow the mixture to rest for 30 minute

Heat a little oil or butter in a frying pan

Add a ladle full of batter to the hot pan, turning the pan so the mixture thinly covers the bottom of the pan.

Allow to cook for around 30 seconds, flip with a palette knife and cook for another 30 seconds.

Put aside on a plate and continue to make the remaining Crepes until all the mixture is used.

Now it is time to indulge!!

How will you decide to eat them?
