Pancake Day Tips

It’s Pancake Day – so here are our tips for perfect pancakes!

·        Use Plain flour for making pancakes (for something different, why not try our Light Spelt, Organic Light Brown Plain or Golden Wholegrain Plain flour.)

·         For smooth pancakes, use a whisk rather than a wooden spoon if you’re mixing the batter by hand

·         Once you’ve made your batter, give it a chance to rest, covered with clingfilm, in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before you use it

·         When you’re ready to start making your pancakes - turn up the heat. Make sure your pan is hot when you start, then turn it down to a medium heat. Drop a small amount of batter into the pan to test whether it quickly turns to a golden colour

·         Use a good quality, heavy bottomed non-stick frying pan – this will help you make thin French style crepes

·         For even sized and shaped pancakes, use a ladle or measuring cup to put your pancake mixture into the frying pan

·         Be prepared to throw away the first pancake that you make – as a trial run

·         Wipe the pan with kitchen roll between pancakes, rather than washing it out

·         Serve immediately – then they won’t go soggy!

·         If you make too many, pancakes can be frozen – place them in a freezer bag, separated by layers of baking parchment
