Flippin' good Pancake Day ideas
Here are our favourite pancake ideas for the most fun-filled Pancake Day ever. Get ready to experiment with cookie cutters and squeezy bottles, we're about to throw some shapes.
Take one shot of pancake batter
Avoid thick and chewy pancakes by measuring the perfect amount of batter in an espresso cup. Just be careful no-one in the kitchen mistakes it for coffee...
Who says pancakes have to be round? Place a cutter of your choice on a hot, lightly buttered frying pan and pour in your batter. Remove the cutter after a couple of minutes and flip to cook the other side. We suggest sprinkling this little fella with cinnamon and icing sugar.
How to flip a pancake
It's all in the wrist. Gently slide your pancake towards the edge of your pan, then swiftly flick your wrist upwards. We've all had a go just to prove how easy it is. After a few practice takes, of course.
For a delicate dessert, or a smaller bite-sized pancake snack, fill a clean squeezey bottle with some batter, and squeeze small circles onto a hot, lightly buttered frying pan. Stack up with sweet or savoury fillings.
