The ‘Wait, Since When was it Pancake Day?’ Crepe Batter
So you forgot it was pancake day. It’s cool. You only forgot about the Most Important Day of the Month. No biggie.
Here’s a super tasty crepe batter recipe to redeem yourself. Chuck on some of that resident golden syrup that’s sitting at the back of your cupboard – and job done.
100g plain flour
2 tbsp butter
2 large eggs
Whisk up the milk, eggs and sugar until combined. Add a pinch of salt
Melt the butter in the microwave and add this to the mixture.
In another bowl, empty 100g of plain flour. Make a well in the middle and add the wet ingredients.
Whisk up until the batter is smooth.
Fry the pancakes on an oiled non-stick pan for about 1-2 minutes each. Flip them over when you start to see bubbles forming in the middle of the pancake.
To layer, place them on a plate with baking paper or kitchen roll in the middle of each pancake.

The All Out American
Topping Combo: bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs, and lashings of maple syrup or golden syrup.
Super-American pancakes. A foolproof way to enjoy some 10/10 traditional American pancakes! This is the best way to enjoy pancakes the traditional way! These topping suggestions work best on thick fluffy pancakes as you’ve got a lot of topping to work with here, so you’ll need to provide lots of pancake-ness to soak up the toppings. These traditional American pancakes are a fab option for a lazy weekend breakfast, to serve with coffee and fruit.
Beans on Toast Crepe-Enchilladas
Topping Combo:Beans, Worcestershire Sauce with loads of cheese
Yep, you read that right. Cheesy beans, mixed with enchiladas, mixed with CREPES.
There is so much going on here, and it might sound a bit wacky. But trust us when we say you won’t regret it.
Once you’ve cooked your crepes, add hot baked beans as your filling and roll the crepes up with the filling inside. Add a little Worcestershire sauce to spice things up a bit, and obviously remember your staple salt and pepper. Add the beans into the crepes and roll-up. Layer your crepe-enchiladas in a row in a non-stick baking dish, and cover with MORE beans and LOADS of cheese. We recommend you add a variety of different cheeses so that when the cheese melts you get a super oozy texture and a variety of different flavors.
Bake in the oven for about 5-10 minutes until the enchilada crepes are cooked all the way through, and the cheese has fully melted.
Supergreen Vegan Crepes
Topping Combo: Spirulina (add into the batter), chopped almonds, chopped banana, toasted oats, agave syrup
This is a super healthy combo that you can use alongside a vegan pancake batter. Spirulina is an unbeatable source of protein that does wonders for your body. Don’t be put off if you think these pancakes look like melted Shrek. They’re actually incredibly tasty and healthy! Pancake Day with none of the guilt. Double whammy.
These are a perfect breakfast/dessert pancake option if you enjoy your pancakes with a bit of sweetness and crunch!
To make the cinnamon butter, simply add cinnamon and a drop of vanilla essence to some room-temperature salted butter. Using the back of a metal spoon, blend the cinnamon in with the butter, and leave it in the fridge to set.
Cinnamon butter is perfectly served on warm pancakes, as the butter will slightly melt and you’ll get all of the cinnamon goodness evenly distributed over the pancakes! Add a dollop of vanilla ice cream in the middle of the pancakes if you’re after a hot/cold combo.
All these fool-proof recipes can be cooked up right here in your Studio kitchen. And if you need a weekly fix of your favourite pancakes, then why not cook up a whole batch and freeze them for a weekend treat?
However you choose to chef up your pancakes, we hope it’s a blast.
