Pancake Day

Hurrah, Pancake Day is here! Shrove Tuesday always precedes Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), and the idea is to use up all your eggs, flour and milk. A simple pancake batter calls for those three staple ingredients, but you can easily jazz your pancakes up by playing with the toppings. We've got both sweet and savoury ideas (have both!), including banana pancakes, ricotta pancakes with whipped honey butter, St Clement’s breakfast pancakes, Korean courgette pancakes with dipping sauce and sweetcorn pancakes with avocado salad. If you're feeling super adventurous, try our showstopping matcha mille crêpe cake...
