Top tips for making pancakes

1. Make sure you never over mix your pancake batter or you'll end up with chewy pancakes instead of fluffy ones. A few lumps here and there are ok!

 

2. Fresh pancake batter is best. If you're super organised you'll want to make the pancake batter ahead of time but hold yourself back - the fresher the better that's our motto.

 

3. Make sure your pancake is not too thin otherwise it'll get stuck to the pan and will be hard to flip.

 

4. Grease your pan with a little bit of butter before adding the pancake mix. Use kitchen roll to carefully smear around the hot pan.

 

5. The first pancake is always the worst - don't worry. Put it to one side and continue with your batch, the second will taste like heaven!

 

6. If you want to cook berries or chocolate chips in your pancake we'd recommend pouring the batter into the pan first, leaving it to cook gently and then sprinkle on the chocolate chips or berries and then flip to cook the other side for only a few mintues otherwise it'll burn.
