Pancake Tuesday

Executive Head Chef Odran Lucey shares his top tips and the recipe for the perfect pancake. 
  1. Try and use a ladle or the same spoon so it is giving you the same size pancake every time.
  2. Pancakes sticking to the pan is a common error that happens everyone so I would recommend using a non-stick pan and plastic spatula
  3. The pan should be hot first add a little oil then knob of butter allowing it to foam and then add pancake batter, always wipe the pan after every second one.
The Perfect Pancake Recipe:
  • 100 g self-raising flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 200ml buttermilk
  • 20g caster sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Butter for frying
The Method:
  • In a large bowl place, mix flour and sugar
  • Make a well in the centre
  • In a separate bowl, crack your egg, add the buttermilk, and zest of the lemon and mix together
  • Pour this mix gently into the flour, stirring continuously, bringing the flour in from the sides to the centre
  • Allow to rest for ½ hour
  • Over a medium heat in a non-stick pan, add a knob of butter, pour about 50mls into the centre and cook until bubbles start appearing
  • Turn and cook for another 2 minutes approx.
  • Last step: Enjoy
