It’s Pancake Day, Shrove Tuesday! Are you having pancakes today? Pancakes make a quick and easy money-saving meal.

This recipe is taken from my 30 Minute Cookbook by Jenni Fleetwood. I’ve been using this cookbook for years, it’s had so much use the pages are sticking together! It has some really delicious dishes within it.

Perfect Pancakes

This recipe makes about 12 pancakes. Preparation time 5 minutes, cooking time 20 minutes.

175g/60z/1 1/2 cups of plain flour

10ml/2tsp caster sugar

2 eggs

450ml/3/4 pint/1 3/4 cups of milk

25g/1oz/2tbsp butter, melted

  1. Sift the flour into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Make a well in the flour and sugar and add the eggs and half the milk. Stir, gradually adding the dry ingredients until smooth, then beat in the remaining milk.
  2. Stir most of the melted butter into the batter. Heat your pan then grease it lightly with butter. Spoon in 4tbsp of the batter, tilting the pan so that it coats the bottom evenly. Cook until the pancake has set and small holes appear on the surface. Lift the edge, check that the base is pale brown before flipping the pancake over. Cook the other side, then serve.
