Pancakes are for life, not just Shrove Tuesday

15/02/2013 | Posted in Kitchen

Don’t get us wrong, Shrove Tuesday is a brilliant day. Supermarket shelves have just about replenished their stocks after a surge in egg and milk sales, and kitchen floors across the country are looking shinier after a much needed clean. 


Despite this, we’re adamant that pancakes should be enjoyed all year round – why just save it for one day a year? They’re not only delicious, but they’re so versatile that they can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 



There is a lot of debate around how to make the perfect pancake, so to help out we’ve got a great recipe that will make lip-smacking pancakes every time. What’s more, if you use a handy kitchen helper like the Morphy Richards Hand Blender set, you will be flipping them in no time – ideal for satisfying second and even third servings!


125g plain flour
1 medium egg, beaten
275ml-300ml semi-skimmed milk
Vegetable or sunflower oil, for frying


1. To make the batter, sift the flour with a pinch of salt into the bowl. Make a well in the centre, pour in the egg. Add the whisk attachment. 
2. Slowly whisk in enough milk to make a smooth batter, the consistency of pouring cream. Rest for at least 20 minutes.
3. Heat small frying pan over a medium heat, and add oil. Add a small amount of batter and tilt the pan to swirl the batter evenly and thinly. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the pancake is golden underneath.
4. Loosen all around the pancake with a knife, then flip and cook for a further minute, until golden. 
5. Serve the pancakes on a plate with your chosen accompaniment.
