As it’s Pancake Day on Tuesday 9th February, we’ve tested some pancake recipes (all in the line of duty ☺) and shared the best recipes here:

pancakeLenka’s Pancake recipe: These are delicious and filling pancakes and perfect to get the kids eating fruit without them even realizing. We used bananas in ours, which made them naturally sweet tasting. They really are yummy!

Delia Smiths best basic pancake recipe: If my friend’s children come over, they always want Sarah’s pancakes (they’re actually Delia Smiths but shhhh don’t tell anyone). They are very easy to make and make lovely thin pancakes. I double or triple this recipe and we first have savory pancakes with cheese & ham and then we move onto the sweet pancakes ☺

Scotch Pancakes: also known as ‘drop scones’ are always a winner in my house, the kids can’t get enough of them. So easy to make and quick to put together when the kids are looking for an afternoon treat. They’re perfect warm with you choice of topping, butter and jam are always a favourite with my sweet tooth! Also yummy with strawberries, or blueberries & cream.
