This is literally my favourite day of the year. I Love pancakes sooo much so I’m taking full advantage of this to eat as many as I possibly can.


I am fully aware that crepes are traditionally eaten on pancake day and to be honest I do normally prefer them however, this year I have decided to switch things up a bit and make some American pancakes.

I will admit I’m no expert when it comes to cooking thing’s however, these did turn out tastier than expected, haha. The recipe I used for these pancakes is from Zoe Sugg’ ‘Cordially Invited’ book . I decided to go for this recipe because whenever she makes pancakes they always look Delicious so thought I would give it ago.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking time :20 Minutes


  • 200g Plain flower
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp Caster sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 250ml Milk
  • Tablespoon of veg oil for frying.
  • Any topping you want. I went for fruit, syrup, Nutella, squirty cream and yogurt


  • Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar in a mixing bowl before making a well in the centre. In a separate bowl whisk the milk and eggs and pour gently into the well you just created. Mix for a few minutes until combined.
  • Heat a a frying pan over medium heat and add about 1 tsp of vegetable oil.
  • Fill your ladle with the batter and pour into the centre of the pan.
  • Allow the pancake mix to cook for around 4 minutes or until it becomes a golden colour and then flip it over to allow it to cook for a further 4 minutes.
  • If the pan becomes too dry, feel free to add more oil. Continue this method until all of your pancake mix is gone.
  • Now for the fun part – decorating. Honestly just throw whatever you want on, I’m sure they will end up tasty no matter what you put on.

Hope you all have a fab week and stuff your faces with as many pancakes as possible. I know I will be!

  1. Great job! They look yummy. I cheated this year and bought mine from a specialty restaurant. Yours look exactly the same! No Nutella for me. Mine came with English cream (no idea if you would recognize it or have a different name for it). Thanks to the Great British Baking Show I know what castor sugar is. We just call it sugar or table sugar. Your recipe is similar to one I make called Canadian Pancakes. Fun post, great pics! Lots of Gras in your Mardi! Now on to Lent!😄

    1. Thank you so much😊they did taste alright but I always forget how filling pancakes are. I end up filling my plate and never being able to finish them. I love watching that show and to be honest I never really use the right sugar, I just throw any sugar in and hope for the best 😂
