Pancake Tuesday is traditionally the day before Ash Wednesday. However, this basic pancake recipe can be enjoyed anytime during the year.
Pancakes are one the most versatile dishes that a person can cook, so grab your ingredients and your imagination and let’s go!
- 2 large eggs
- 180ml milk
- 120ml water
- 120g plain flour
- 45g butter, melted, plus extra for frying
1. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2. Melt a knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat.
3. Ladle a little batter into the bottom of the pan, then lift and tilt the pan around so the batter forms an even coating.
4. Cook for 1-2 minutes, then flip and cook for another 10 seconds. Transfer to a plate and keep warm in a low oven while you repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding a little extra butter to the pan when necessary.
Why not have some fun and create some lovely pancake art? Bunnies, faces and even names can be ladelled onto the pan.
