50 best pancake recipes

50 best pancake recipes

Pancake day is looming, and I don’t know about you but I’m always unprepared for the day. It’s always a last minute dash to the supermarket for eggs and I usually end up making something uninventive (strange for a food blogger!) So this year I thought I would compile a list of 50 pancake recipes to try from my favourite UK foodie bloggers and here’s what I came up with.

I’ve gone a bit pancake mad whilst writing this post but now I can be sure I won’t ever be far away from a pancake recipe to choose from! I’m definitely going to make one from this list but it’s going to take me a long time to pick! That’s why i’ve been kind enough to sort them out into categories to make it easier to choose. Although some of them could clearly have been in more than one. I’d recommend having a click around on a few first before deciding as they’re all hidden gems!

Happy flipping!
