Happy Pancake Day, I hope you’ve been enjoying your Pancakes :)

This year I’m taking a break and Were having Store brought pancakes this year.

I’m not being lazy I over did it by following my hubby on an 8 mile walk across the English Countryside and I’m feeling a little delicate today, I don’t think I’ve walked that far since I was a teen, neither has he :)

So I’ve put my frying pan away for today, but for all you traditionalists here is a pancake recipe for Pancake Day by Delia Smith.

Pancake Recipe


4oz plain flour, sifted
pinch of salt
2 eggs
7fl oz milk mixed with 75ml/3fl oz water
2oz butter


Sieve the flour with the salt into a bowl, add the egg and milk and whisk until smooth.

Heat up a pan and melt the butter swish the melted butter around to coat the pan with the melted butter.

Using a ladle pour a scoop of the batter into the hot pan, (depending on how thick you want your pancake if it’s a thin pancake one ladle of pancake batter 2 or 3 for a thick pancake) tilting the frying pan coat the pan with the pancake batter .

Cook the pancake for 2-3 minutes tease the pancake from the side of the pan with a spatula and turn it over and cook the other side.

Remove pancake from pan and top with anything you like eat while it’s still warm.
