Every year, Shrove Tuesday – also known as Pancake Day – presents a great chance for families and friends to get together and spend some quality time in each other’s company while enjoying some tasty treats.
There are loads of different ways to make pancakes depending on what your specific preferences are, and you can include exciting flavours and textures to make your pancakes that little bit different if you so wish. But there are some rudimental elements and items that are required for the making of pancakes.
Here at Poundstretcher, we can provide you with a great selection of items to help support with your Pancake Day efforts.
All The Ingredients!
When it comes to those basic ingredients for pancakes, a few things spring to mind.
Eggs are a must, while vegetable oil and salts such as our natural sea salts can help to add flavour. And, of course, let's not forget the lemon juice!
Grab All The Equipment!
To make truly top of the range pancakes, it’s important you have the right tools at hand.
A large bowl such as a mixing bowl is the perfect way to get all your ingredients together and mixed up. All your eggs, flour, milk and other ingredients need to be thoroughly whisked, which you can do with a stainless steel or nylon whisks.
You can then use specially-designed crêpe pans to start the heating process. If you don’t have a crêpe pan to hand, a ceramic frying pan will work just fine. Choose from 20cm, 24cm and 28cm frying pans.
Don’t forget about a dash of sunflower oil spray to prevent the ingredients from sticking to the pan.
Why Not Get Experimental?
There’s no reason why you can’t add a few interesting elements to this year’s pancake batch and add a bit of variety to proceedings.
