Pancakes (Crepes) Recipe

Cowbridge Kitchen

Pancakes are traditionally eaten on Shrove Tuesday or Pancake day, they are so simple to make and delicious at any time of the year.

Pancakes are often served with sweet sugary toppings such as Maple Syrup or Chocolate. Traditionally in the UK we used to splash them with lemon juice and just roll them in caster sugar.

The French would served these in a delicious orange and caramel sauce, frambé with Grand Marnier for the perfect Crepe Suzette
