The Great British Pancake
On Shrove Tuesday every year in the UK it is traditional to eat pancakes. Get your pan out…

  • 500 ml (20 fl oz) milk
  • 200 g (7 oz) plain flour
  • 20 g (1 oz) melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • Vegetable oil for cooking
  • Lemon juice
  • Sugar
  1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl. Add the salt and make a well in the centre of the flour.
  2. Add in the milk gradually and whisk. Once all the milk has been added beat in the eggs. Finally, whisk in the melted butter.
  3. Heat about ½ tsp of oil in a pan to a high heat. Add a ladle of the batter and swirl it around to make a thin circle. Cook for about 30 seconds then turn the pancake over to cook on the other side for about another 30 seconds. Place the cooked pancake on a plate.
  4. The traditional way of eating a pancake is to sprinkle with sugar, squeeze on some lemon juice and roll into a tube. Enjoy!
Titli's Tips
The pancakes should be thin and easy to fold. To stack the pancakes it’s best to sprinkle a little sugar between the pancakes to stop them from sticking together.

Some people like to have fruit and yoghurt with their pancakes, or melt some cheese onto them. Maybe some Nutella!

And finally, if you don’t know how to toss a pancake my advice is to turn the pancake with a spatula during cooking. If you want to practise, make sure you do so with a cold pan and a cooked pancake!
