Cream chargers have a huge number of uses, from desserts to putting the expert finishing touches to a fancy hot chocolate, and they’re used in different ways for each purpose. Unless you’re a culinary genius, it can be quite difficult to get your charger to work perfectly, but it’s by no means brain surgery.

Pancakes are another great partner for whipped cream – and who doesn’t love a good pancake? Either first thing in the morning for breakfast, in the evening as a dessert or just on the one-off occasion for Shrove Tuesday, people just love their pancakes, and covering them in delicious whipped cream can set them apart from the rest.

They’re dead easy to make and decorate too. All you’ll need are:

- 350ml of milk
- 2 cups of flour
- 2 tablespoons of butter/vegetable oil
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- 2 teaspoons of baking soda
- 2 eggs
- half a teaspoon of baking powder (if you’re NOT using self raising flour)

So, time to crack some eggs and get going!

1. Crack the eggs and beat them in a bowl until fluffy. Add the remainder of the dry ingredients and the milk. If you’re using self raising flour, don’t add the baking powder. If not, add the powder to the mix but don’t stir it yet.

2. Melt the butter and add it to the mix. Begin stirring on a constant basis until the mixture becomes smooth throughout.

3. Turn on the grill and set it to a medium heat and bring your pan up to temperature, (you’ll know it’s ready if you add some drops of water and they sizzle).

4. Pour roughly a cup of the mixture into the pan, or until you cover the base of the pan.

5. Cook your pancake until it turns golden brown, and you will start to see some bubbles forming and popping along the edges. At this point it’s time to flip!

6. Once the other side turns golden brown, remove it from the heat and you have your pancake.

7. At this point it’s time to add the toppings or decorations, so get your cream charger ready and make your elaborate patterns to add some fun to your breakfast or dessert – the best way to encourage kids to eat their breakfast!
