How to make pancakes
If you've always wanted to learn how to whisk a smooth, lump-free batter, or how to master the flip technique, Dhruv Baker has all the answers.
In Dhruv's words, "It's 4 ingredients, minutes to make and incredibly tasty." So there's no excuses not to get whisking and start flipping this Pancake Day.
Fruit and pancakes are a perfect match. For exciting fruit flavours, try our rum and lime baked bananas recipe, or for a quick and easy option, simply top with your favourite fresh fruit.
Just as delicious with hot smoked salmon, crispy pancetta and grilled cherry tomatoes as they are with chocolate, savoury pancakes make a great meal. Try our three cheese kale pancakes as Hardy winter kale is a great veg to add to your salad drawer at this time of year. Packed with vitamins A and C, it's is also a good source of calcium. Or add a touch of spice with our sweetcorn and red onion pancakes with a sweet chilli sauce.
