Learn how to make the perfect pancake with this easy guide.

For centuries, the humble pancake has endured a special place in our hearts, perhaps because of its adaptability, or perhaps because it’s just so tasty?

The classic combination of lemon and sugar is a favourite amongst British households. Although we somewhat suspect that Nutella may have become the nation’s favourite over the past few years!

No matter what you choose to cook this Pancake Day, the key to a perfect pancake is all in the preparation. With the right set of tools, even the clumsiest of cooks can learn to flip with finesse.

High street retailer Robert Dyas has put together a selection of the best utensils for the job for those looking to refine their crepe-making skills.

Making The Perfect Pancake

Measure out your ingredients carefully with this Salter Arc Platform Scale and this handy Pyrex 500ml Measuring Jug.

Make sure there are no lumps in your batter by whisking well with this Kitchen Craft Professional Balloon Whisk.

When it comes to pancakes, non-stick frying pans are an absolute must. The Tefal Extra Frying Pan is not only non-stick, it also has Tefal’s Thermo-Spot Technology to allow you to see when your pan has reached the optimal temperature for cooking.

Rather than using a spatula, use a turner with flexible edges that can slide in underneath your pancake easier. Prevent tears by using the OXO Good Grips Silicone Turner.

Add the finishing touches to your pancake by using this Kitchen Craft Mini Grater to create chocolate curls.

So, whether you enjoy yours thick and fluffy or classically thin, Pancake Day is not something to forget.

Eat them for breakfast or try a savoury option for dinner, Pancake Day is a great opportunity to get together with your family and enjoy the cooking experience together!
