Pancake Tuesday!

Pancake Tuesday, boys and girls. A magical time of year. You can eat as much as you want, but because they’re only pancakes, you don’t look like such a savage. In school, we used to brag about how many we ate. Since I didn’t get any pancakes last year, I’m going to make up for it this year by gorging myself until I’ve got pancake batter coming out my ears.


100g flour
2 Eggs
200ml milk, mixed with 75ml water

  1. Sift flour into a mixing bowl.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it
  3. Whisk well
  4. Slowly add the milk and water, whisking as you go
  5. Cook in a pan over a medium heat


  • Sugar and lemon juice. It is vitally important that the juice be from a plastic lemon. Otherwise it may as well be any other day of the week because it’s just not Pancake Tuesday with plastic lemon.
  • Nutella. Nothing else. Okay, maybe ice cream. You’ll be bouncing off the walls for days.
  • Bacon and maple syrup. Friend in work gave me a bottle of maple syrup from Canada, since all I seem to be able to find in Dublin is maple-flavoured Golden Syrup.
  • Blueberries. Awesome when they’re dropped into the batter as it cooks in the pan.

So what’s your favourite filling?

    3 sugar and lemon juice — out of real lemons (I know!) — before I hit my limit.

    I was complimenting my friends mam on making them when she told me they’d come from a bottle from Lidl.

    I still thought they were nice.
