  • Today I'm going to share with you my favorite pancake making tips.

  • We're going to start by making thick and fluffy American style pancakes

  • and we're going to need 1 egg, 200 grams of self raising flour, 250 mililitres of milk,

  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder and a tablespoon of sugar.

  • Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder together, I've also added a pinch of salt

  • then break in the egg and give it a good mix. Keep mixing slowly and add the milk.

  • The mixture should be pretty smooth, but don't worry if there's a few lumps.

  • Then cut off a knob of butter, and heat it in a pan.

  • Pour any excess butter into the mixture and whisk it in. This will help make the pancakes nice and rich.

  • Pour the mixture into a jug, and add some to the pan.

  • When you can start seeing air bubbles in the mixture, turn it over and cook the other side.

  • You can serve it with a knob of butter and some maple syrup.

  • Use a metal cookie cutter to make fun shaped pancakes.

  • And with this gingerbread man cutter, I'm using blueberries for eyes.

  • To make blueberry style pancakes, add some blueberries to the mixture, and give it a good stir.

  • Then pour some into the pan, and cook as normal.

  • Add some butter or syrup as you like.

  • To toss a pancake, first you need to make sure its cooked on the underside and slides around smoothly in the pan.

  • Then you need to quickly push the pan away from you and flick it with your wrist

  • so the pancake slides up the back of the pan and over.

  • Make sure there's no oil in the pan, because you don't want it to splash out and burn you.

  • If you have any batter left over, you can store it in an empty sauce bottle.

  • Put the lid on and keep it in the fridge.

  • The next morning, give it a good shake, and it's ready for cooking.

  • I like to serve my pancakes in a stack and covered in maple syrup.

  • To make the thin European style pancakes you need to mix half a pint of milk together with an egg.

  • Then add 125 grams of plain flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl, slowly add the milk and egg

  • whisk thoroughly, and pour the mixture into a jug.

  • Heat some oil in a pan, and cook a nice big pancake.

  • Once its cooked, you could add lemon and sugar, or some fruit.

  • I'm going to cover it in a layer of chocolate spread, then slide it between the prongs of a fork

  • and twist the fork to roll up the pancake.

  • Cut it in half and serve it with a scoop of ice cream.
