DIY Pancakes

Although all of the above cafés/ restaurants are offering some extremely scrummy pancakes. If you are like me, I do love making my own pancakes on pancake day with my friends and family! I enjoy assembling and laying out the choice of toppings for everyone. To make the pancake batter simply all you need is: 100g plain flour, two eggs, 300ml milk and a splash of sunflower oil. Whisk all the ingredients together and pour into a hot pan. All that’s left is the seemingly simple task of flipping your pancakes.

Making pancakes at home with the people you love is my favourite way to spend pancake day. You are guaranteed to have a laugh, taste some yummy pancakes (made by you!) and throw a couple of dodgy prototypes in the bin!
