Pancake Day

Even though I am the baker in our household, Pancake Day is not my domain but my husbands. I love Pancake Day and I love it even more when I do not do any of the cooking but just get to enjoy the eating!

I thought I would share his Pancake Recipe with you as well as some of the pictures from our Pancake Day yesterday:


  • 110g of Plain Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 200ml of Milk
  • 75ml of Water
  • 1tbsp of Melted Butter
  • Pinch of Salt
Pancake Batter

  1. Sieve the flour into a large bowl
  2. Make a well in the middle and add the eggs
  3. Whisk into the flour until a batter starts to form
  4. Gradually add the water and milk to the batter so it becomes thinner and smoother
  5. Finally add the tablespoon of melted butter and pinch of salt to finish the batter
  6. In a medium frying pan melt butter (better to use than oil) then ladle in a scoop of the batter and fry for 2 minutes on each side
  7. Repeat until all the batter has been used
  8. The pancakes can then be served and enjoyed with a topping of your choice!

As usual the boy did good and our pancakes were just as delicious as they are every year and I am left waiting for next February…
