Flipping Marvellous Pancakes

Aren’t these just the prettiest pancakes you’ve ever seen? We’ve filled this blog with all things pancakes, from a basic recipe, easy-to-use kit to make the perfect ones (without them ending up on the ceiling!) and some scrumptious toppings for you to try, with recipes for both sweet and savoury pancakes. Two-course pancake dinner anyone?

Pancakes made easy

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.


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


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.

Sweet or savoury?

Now you have your basic recipe, it’s time to decide on your delicious toppings. We have so many scrumptious recipe ideas to choose from on our blog, and here are some of our favourites to get you started:
