Come Shrove Tuesday, the pressure is always on to make those perfect pancakes – the type that don’t refuse to flip and don’t stick to the ceiling! Bob Clark, the founder of Clarks, the leading producer of maple syrup in the UK, has the following tips on how to make pancakes that are as close to perfection as possible. “Pancakes are so easy to make, and if you follow the recipe I am about to share, they should be just about fool proof,” says Bob.
18 cm frying pan
Saucepan for heating butter
Whisk or fork
110g plain flour
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of Clarks Original Maple Syrup (to serve).
“In my house, of course, we love to cover them with maple syrup when we start the filling, then we add different toppings such as fruits, nuts and berries.” – Bob Clark
