Practice Pancake Day!

Pancake day is nearly here. While I’m thinking about what to give up for Lent we started talking about “practice pancake day” which is a family tradition.

We have doing this for the last 8 years. I love love love pancakes!!

I’ve always used Delia’s basic pancake recipe as they make really thin pancakes.

Pancakes (makes about 12)

110g Plain Flour
2 Eggs
Pinch of salt
200ml Milk mixed with 75ml Water

● In a bowl measure out the flour and salt, make a small hollow and add the eggs. Mix this really well, if you don’t do this now you will end up with lumps of flour in your pancakes.


● Next add the milk/water mixture a little at a time until you’ve used all of the liquid. You can store it in the fridge until you’re ready to start cooking them.
● Just before you start. Melt a small bit of butter and mix it into the pancake batter.
● Heat the pan, add a tiny bit of butter. Pour in some batter and cook then either flip (I can’t bring myself to do this in case I drop it) or use a spatula.
● Make more and eat with whatever filling you like. We like to eat them with lemon and sugar.
