It’s pancake day on Tuesday, yay! They’re super simple, super easy and you can put whatever toppings you like on them! Sweet or savoury, pancakes make for a delicious breakfast, dinner or pudding!

I consulted a good old fashioned kitchen must have for this one, the Be-Ro book. Here is what you will need to make about 8 x 17cm ø pancakes.

  • 100g Plain Flour
  • Salt, pinch
  • 1 Egg
  • 250ml Milk
  • Butter (for cooking fat)

Sieve the flour into a large bowl, mix in the salt then make a well in the centre.

PancakesAdd the egg into the middle, mix with a whisk and gradually stir in half the milk until all the flour is fully incorporated and there are no lumps.

Slowly whisk in the rest of the milk. You should end up with a consistency like single cream.

PancakesTip! I poured the batter into a jug, making it easier/less messy pouring into the pan.

Melt a small knob of butter in a pan, then add enough batter to cover the bottom. (Swilling the pan around until the liquid almost stops moving.)


PancakesWhen golden brown underneath, if you’re daring – flip it, or if you’re boring like me turn over with a large spatula.

PancakesWhen it’s cooked and golden brown on both sides, slide onto a plate and top with whatever you like!

My favourite savoury filling has to be crispy bacon with cream cheese and chives…



The Mr loves his Nutella and squirty cream but this has to be my best ‘sweet’ concoction to date. Layers of pancake, creme patisserie, crumbled home made choc chip cookies and more chocolate chips. All topped off with some good ol’ squirty cream. YUM! (And a little sickly… but more YUM!)
PancakesYou really can let your imagination run wild with pancakes as there are so many different filling ideas out there! Whether it’s savoury or sweet, American or British, I hope you all have a fantastic Pancake Day!

Until next time my lovelies.

  1. This does look like an amazing breakfast-yum! Not only are your pancakes perfectly toasted, you did dress them up with some tasty toppings. I would be hard pressed if I had to make a choice between the two. Delicious post!

  2. Thank you! Glad you like the post. I was hard pressed too that’s why I had the savoury ones for dinner & a sweet one for pudding!
