Making the Perfect Pancake

January 14, 2019 by Jasmine

Pancake day is almost here and we are very excited as we love PANCAKES! From sweet to savoury this pancake recipe is perfect, and it’s super easy!


100g Plain Flour (500g Heritage Plain Flour 59p)

2 Large eggs

300ml milk semi-skimmed milk (measuring jug)

1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil and some for frying


  • 1) In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, eggs, oil and 50ml of the milk. Whisk until you have a smooth thick paste (add a little more milk if it’s too stiff to mix)

  • 2) Add the milk gradually and keep mixing until the consistency it’s like thick single cream.

  • 3) Heat a pan on medium heat and add a little oil (only enough so the pancake doesn’t stick).

  • 4) Using a ladle gently pour the batter into the pan and roll the pan around so the batter covers all of it.

  • 5) Leave the pancake until the bottom turns a golden colour underneath (this should only take 30-40sec).

  • 6) Using a spatula, flip the pancake over so the top is now at the bottom cooking.

  • 7) Once cooked, slide the pancake on to a warm plate (to prevent it from going cold) and repeat the process stacking the pancakes on the plate.

  • 8) Add toppings of your choice! here are some ideas – Sugar (1kg 69p), Strawberry Jam (jar of jam 99p), chocolate spread and even lemon (Lemon Juice 49p).

  • 9) ENJOY!



If you like to idea of having pancakes but not the idea of having to make the batter then we have a great range of pancakes mixes available where you just add water to the mix and then they are ready to cook! they also come in different flavours such as Red Velvet and Chocolate, we even have one that will make American pancakes!
