For me, the best pancakes to have on Shrove Tuesday are the traditional ones. Served warm, straight from the pan and sprinkled with caster sugar and plenty of fresh lemon juice - nothing beats it! They'll be lining up for these!
This quick and simple recipe - only 4 ingredients! This was given to me by mum. They are much thicker and smaller than standard pancakes and everyone always asks for the recipe. Even my French boyfriend's family said they were better than crepes! Recipe can be easily doubled, trebled, quadrupled - quantity of flour is always the double of sugar and adjust milk and egg accordingly.
This is a basic pancake mix that I use to make traditional pancakes or crepes. This will make about 12 pancakes or 8 crepes.
Easy to make and they disappear quickly!
Serve warm with ice cream for a lovely pudding, or with honey or syrup for a breakfast treat.
