Pancake day is here! & yes that is your cue to Pig Out… Cheat day here I come!
So I decided to do a yummy Pancake post for you all, especially as I am referred to as “The Pancake maker” in my household- & have learnt all my pancake making skills from my Nan.. So I’m basically an expert! Lol
Pancakes… The basics!
- Always have a hot pan! Before you put the mix in
- Keep your pan greesed (or it all gets a little sticky)
- Whisk it up gooooood- no lumps allowed
- Always use plain flour
- For thin pancakes/crepes- mixture consistency should be runny & thin
- For thick american styled fluffy pancakes use plain flour with baking soda- consistency of mix must be thicker
But of course … I can’t give away all my secrets! & anyone who knows me, knows I never follow a recipe to the dot anyway- it’s got to be done by feel and eye, however it wouldn’t be Lovesian if I didn’t try and clue you all up on a couple tricks, so here are some amazing recipes below! Click & get Pancaking people!!!
