Pancake Day!

Hi Everyone,

so this tuesday was Shrove Tuesday aka Pancake day. I suggested we should have pancakes for dinner, but Jenny reckoned that wasn't healthy enough so we decided to have them for dessert. Was surprised how easy they were to make and they were pretty delish.

Heres the recipe I used, it makes 6 pancakes.


120g flour
pinch of salt
2 eggs
210ml milk
90ml water
1tbsp vegetable oil
1tbsp powder sugar
butter, for frying


Sieve and mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and crack in the eggs. In a seperate bowl mix together the milk and water. Beat the eggs into the flour with a wooden spoon and gradually add the milk and water mix to get a smooth liquid consistency. Stir in the oil and allow to stand for the 30 mins. Then just heat up your pan add a knob of butter and fry. Ill even attach a vid of me flipping the pancakes.

Sugar and lemon juice are pretty tasty additions or if you are Jenny, lots of nutella.

taste: 8/10
price: 2/10
difficulty: 4/10 (pancakes can be hard to flip)
