While many people were celebrating Valentine’s Day this week, a lot of others saw the date as the start of a countdown. Yes, the 14th February was officially one week before Pancake Day.

Pancakes are something you can either make or you can’t. A lot of people panic when it comes to the flipping part, fearing that they’ll leave it stuck to the ceiling, drop it onto the floor because they missed the frying pan, or worst of all – it never leaves the pan in the first place because you forgot it wasn’t non-stick.

Anyway, here’s a surefire recipe for making the best pancakes, using your cream chargers along the way to really set them off.

1. Crack two eggs into a bowl and beat them until they become fluffy. Add the remainder of the dry ingredients, (flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda), and the milk. However, if you’re using self-rising flour you don’t need baking powder.

2. Melt the butter and add it into the bowl and mix slowly. Continue with the stirring until you get a smooth consistency.

3. Set your pan to a medium heat and, if you’re not using a non-stick pan, lightly coat your pan with butter to avoid the dreaded sticking scenario.

4. Take approximately 25% of the mixture and pour into the pan until it turns golden brown, (around 2 to 3 minutes normally). Bubbles will begin to form around the edge and this is the signal to turn it. Shake the pan gently to loosen it from the pan and give it a flick – height is not essential but ensure it does turn over.

5. When the other side is golden brown, you’re ready to remove the pancake from the heat and add the filling or topping. This is where you get to have some fun.

6. Cream chargers are a nice way of putting designs on your pancakes through whipped cream. Smiley faces or just filling with cream to hold fruit inside your rolled pancake are just two suggestions, put the canvas is yours. Enjoy!
