For complete indulgence on Pancake Day, why not make a Pancake Cake?

Follow our recipe below to make your pancakes.  Then make a pile of pancakes, spreading your favourite fresh fruit and honey between the layers.  Make into a deep cake and cut into slices.

…Also good with fresh strawberries and cream.  Alternatively try fresh berries, creme fraiche and a drizzle of chocolate sauce…yum! 

Ingredients for the Pancakes

300ml of full-fat milk
2 medium eggs
125g plain flour
25g melted butter
Extra butter to cook the pancakes with


  1. Pour the milk into a jug, add the eggs and beat well.
  2. Place 125g plain flour into a bowl and make a hollow in the centre
  3. Gradually pour the egg and milk mixture into the centre of the flour, whisking just in the centre as you pour.
  4. Keep whisking so you gradually draw in the flour from the outside of the bowl – this will hopefully keep your mixture lump free!
  5. When the flour is fully mixed in, whisk the melted butter into the batter, cover the bowl and put in the fridge to rest for half and hour or a few minutes if you are short of time!
  6. Heat frying pan on a medium heat
  7. Add small amount of butter and let it melt to cover the base of the pan
  8. Give the batter mix a quick whisk
  9. Ladle some batter into the pan, and tilt the pan so the batter mix covers the base
  10. Put the pan back onto the heat and leave to cook for 1–2 minutes.
  11. Flip the pancake when the underside is golden brown
  12. Remove the pancake from the heat when both sides are golden brown
  13. Repeat until you have enough pancakes for your cake!
  14. Add your favourite toppings and enjoy
