A simple pancake recipe for Shrove Tuesday

Monday, February 12, 2018

Planning to make some pancakes for Shrove Tuesday / Pancake Day? Look no further! This is a really simple recipe for fresh and delicious pancakes for you to try.

These pancakes are really easy to make and can be served savoury or sweet.  Just add the ingredients of your choice to serve.  I recommend ham and cheese for savoury or simply lemon and sugar for a sweet version- exactly how I had them every year when I was growing up
The recipe is really easy. Give it a go- you will be surprised how easy and fun it is!


  • 2 eggs
  • 100g plain flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 500mls milk
  • some oil and butter for frying (adding a little bit of oil stops the butter from burning
  • lemon and sugar to serve (or filling of your choice)
  • place the flour and salt in a bowl, add the eggs and gradually beat in the milk until it forms a smooth batter
  • add a ladleful to a shallow frying pan and cook until it starts bubbling
  • Flip over (you can use a fish slice for this if you aren’t brave enough to toss it)
  • roll and serve with the lemon and sugar
serving suggestion- butter, lemon and sugar
