Whether it’s filled with chocolate and strawberries, glistening in lemon and sugar or drowning in maple syrup and bacon, everybody has their favourite pancake recipes.
Me? I have about 10 different pancake recipes that I adore; however, for the sake of your sanity, I have spent a lot of time narrowing it down to my top 5 recipes.
Basic pancakes are just a concoction of egg, milk, flour and butter. That’s it, super simple hey? However, if you are looking for pancakes that will leave your friends and family desperate for more, then you have come to the right place!
Raspberry Ripple Pancakes
In my opinion, nothing screams heaven more than raspberry, sugar and honey all combined into one fluffy delight. This Raspberry Ripple Pancake recipe from Sainsburys is literally to die for and the pancakes are so simple to make! The tartness of the raspberry combines with the sweetness of the batter to make a yummy treat that is guaranteed to make you go ‘mmmmm’.

American pancakes are what dreams are made of. Light and fluffy yet super thick, American pancakes are so close to my all-time favourite pancake. This recipe from BBC Good Food combines American pancakes and blueberries with a lashing of maple syrup and it’s a great treat for the super sweet lovers! Plus, blueberries are full of antioxidants that are great for your body… let’s just forget they’re doused in syrup hey?
