So I thought to help celebrate Shrove Tuesday, I’d put up  a pancake recipe.


  • 175g/6oz plain flour
  • 25g/1oz golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 free-range eggs, separated
  • 250ml/9fl oz milk
  • 25g/1oz butter
  • 12 rashers maple-cured back bacon
  • maple syrup, to serve
Preparation Method

  • Place the flour, caster sugar & baking powder into a bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add the egg yolks & milk to the bowl with the dry ingredients and whisk till you have a smooth batter.
  • In a separate clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form, fold into the batter.
  • Heat a frying pan until hot, add the butter and heat until melted. Place ladlefuls of the batter into the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until bubbles start to form on top of the batter.
  • Turn the pancakes over using a spatula and cook for a further minute or so on the other side. Remove and keep warm. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  • Meanwhile, heat a frying pan, add the bacon and cook for two minutes on each side, or until crisp.
  • Serve on four serving plates, top with the bacon and drizzle with maple syrup.
