Forget Valentine’s Day – there is only one day in February to look forward to. In 2018, pancake day is Tuesday 13th, so you still have a bit of time to perfect your batter making and flipping skills. Pancake day is a fantastic excuse to get the whole family involved, and we have found the best pancake recipe for kids and adults alike for easy mixing and tossing – although we cannot guarantee your ceiling will remain pancake-free!

This recipe, originally from BBC Good Food, is super-easy making it great if you are cooking with children. It only needs a few ingredients which are all kitchen staples, and then whichever ingredients you choose to top them with. These pancakes can be frozen too – reheat in the oven for 10-15 minutes with foil on top, or for just one minute in the microwave.

You will need:

  • 140g plain flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 50g melted butter
  • A dash of oil or low-calorie cooking spray

How to make super-easy pancakes:

  1. First, get a mixing bowl and add in the flour and eggs. Beat the mixture with a whisk or fork until it is smooth.
  2. Slowly pour the milk in and continue to mix it all up until it is lump-free, and then add the melted butter to the mix to create the batter.
  3. Oil your pan with your oil or low-calorie cooking spray, before placing the pan on a medium heat.
  4. Using a ladle or large spoon, pour some of the pancake batter into the pan and tilt it to ensure the mixture spreads out over the entire pan.
  5. Cook the batter for about 30 seconds until golden (if you enjoy a slightly thicker pancake, this may take longer), then flip it over and cook on the other side for a similar length of time.

Now comes the fun bit – topping your pancakes! They are great because they are so versatile, whether you like traditional lemon and sugar, fruit or something a bit naughtier. What will you put on yours? Comment below!
