Happy Pancake Day!

I had to share, because I'm feeling very proud of myself today! I usually attempt pancakes for pancake day, but in the past I've always used a pre-made mix - usually a plastic bottle that you add water to and then shake. I always go for American style pancakes which are thicker, sweeter and easier to flip over.

But I'm trying to think a bit more about the food that I eat, and so this year instead of buying the readymade mix I decided that I would make them from scratch. I was pleasantly surprised to find out just how easy it is to make the batter, I had never even looked up a recipe before! I used this one from BBC Good Food - Easy Pancakes Recipe. I also read a tip online to make the batter about an hour before you need it and leave it to chill in the fridge.

To my great surprise, not only did I actually manage to make several successful pancakes for our lunch, they turned out really well and they were delicious!

We ate them with lots of far too sweet toppings (I'm only taking the healthy eating so far...) and I have been feeling very accomplished all day. No more pancake mix for me!

I hope that you have also enjoyed some pancakes today! I will leave you with the obligatory Pancake Day video. When I searched for this I was amused to find that one of the comments underneath was my own, left nine years ago!

  1. Well done you! I have only started making them myself over the last few years. They're easy once you know how! x


I love reading your comments!
