We were delighted that not only our guests showed an interest in perfecting the pancake, but so did the BBC… they joined us with a camera and captured they class for a slot on BBC breakfast on the day itself… Chef Jason was coerced into a few social media snippets which we will enjoy watching going viral over the coming weeks. Back to the pancakes – the recipe will follow this, but our key message is don’t buy the ready mix, pancake batter is easy and really cost effective. Jason encourages use of a sieve, not only for the flour, but also strain the mixture to capture any stray lumps or even eggshell – also don’t use too much butter to cook, oil or butter on a cloth wiped around the pan is sufficient for a few shakes to loosen your pancake ready to flip! Personally, it’s lemon and sugar all the way, but enjoy layering on your favourite toppings and make lots!
