Lakeland Flipping Marvellous Pancakes

With Pancake Day coming up on Tuesday 1st March, Lakeland have shared their favourite recipe for you to enjoy!

Pancakes made easy

Rainbow pancake stack.

We made our pretty rainbow pancake stack using our Electric Pancake and Crêpe Maker. Thanks to the dual-sided non-stick plate, you can make either one large or seven dinky pancakes. We divided up our batter and added food colouring to create the colours of the rainbow then ladled the batter mix into the holes on the mini pancake side of the plate before flipping halfway through. So simple, yet so effective. Then top with whatever you fancy – berries, yoghurt, honey, syrup… mouth watering yet? And with the included ladle, batter spreader and spatula, it couldn’t be easier to make delicious pancakes, just how you like them, every time.

Don’t just take our word for it – our customers love how easy it is to make delicious pancakes in our pancake maker too:

“Wow! Within an hour of arriving at my house a perfect batch of pancakes had been made and eaten. So much easier and safer to use than the normal pan on the hob. Also a lot less oil is required therefore making the pancakes healthier!” Lakeland customer, via website

And if you’re not confident about your flipping skills, our Mini Pancake Maker makes perfect little pancakes, cooking both sides at once. All you need to do is add batter and close the lid until both sides are brown – easy! And no scrambled pancake to clear off the pan, or the ceiling, at the end.

The basics

You can’t make pancakes without a good pancake batter, so here’s our go-to recipe.

Ingredients

  • 110g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 75ml water
  • 50g butter

Instructions

Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre, break the eggs into it and whisk everything together.

Combine the milk and water in a jug then gradually add to the batter while whisking continuously. Once all the liquid has been added, continue to whisk until the batter is smooth and creamy.

Melt the butter and whisk 2 tbsp into the batter. Use the rest of the butter to grease the pan as you cook.

Lakeland No Mess Electric Waffle Maker

If you and your family can think of no better treat than fresh waffles topped with ice cream, our No Mess Waffle Maker is sure to be an instant hit in your home. This easy-to-use machine cooks four golden waffles at a time, and we’ve made sure there’s a drip-catching ‘moat’ at each side of the plates to catch any drips and eliminate mess if you’ve been a little generous with the batter.

Fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside, sweet waffles are a yummy addition to almost any dessert whether paired with your favourite ice cream or dipped into melted chocolate and sprinkles. Of course a savoury waffle, served with crisp bacon and drizzled with maple syrup, is a delicious option for a weekend breakfast or lazy Sunday brunch, and our waffle maker lets you enjoy them as fresh as they can get.
