    30 min

    “If there’s one image of my father that is the most ‘him’ it would be him over his cast-iron griddles making his world-famous pancakes. These things have been legendary in our house for decades.” Gwyneth Paltrow provided this recipe in support of Macmillan Cancer Support's World's Biggest Coffee Morning.
