These are our ultimate pancake recipes, including sweet and savoury toppings that your family will love. 

We have also included some quick fixes and clever kitchen gadgets. A pancake novice? Here are some top tips on how to make the perfect pancake…

What should the pancake mixture look like?

* The mixture needs to be the consistency of double cream.  A thinner mixture, which is more like the consistency of single cream – will make extremely thin pancakes, which will be very tricky to turn over.

* If you’re new to making pancakes, the thicker the mixture, the easier it will be to turn over the pancakes.

* Our Woman recipe combines  100g flour, 2 eggs and 300ml of milk. Start off adding 200ml of milk – better to have too little milk than too much!

What pan should I use?

Keep one pan at home just for pancakes! It needs to be non-stick and shallow.


Q Help! I’ve followed the recipe and the pancakes are still sticking?

A Always heat the pan up with 1tsp sunflower oil until really hot before adding the mixture. Repeat between pancakes. Use a palette knife to turn them over.
