Make sure you celebrate Shrove Tuesday in style with our easy pancake recipe:

Ingredients (makes 12)

100g plain flour

2 large eggs

300ml milk

1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil, plus a little extra for frying

Lots of yummy toppings


Put the flour, eggs, milk, oil and a pinch of salt into a bowl and whisk until a smooth batter.

Set aside for 30 mins to rest if you have time, or start cooking straight away.

Heat a little oil in a medium frying pan or crêpe pan over a medium heat.

When hot, cook your pancakes for 1 min on each side until golden, keeping them warm in a low oven as you go.

Serve with lots of yummy toppings - our favourites are lemon and sugar, honey and berries, bananas and cream or chocolate spread.
