Pancake Day Essentials
If you’ve decided to make your pancakes at home, then it’s important to have the very best equipment to make them with. Top of that list is a non-stick frying pan; for this and more, head to Robert Dyas, which also stocks mixing bowls, whisks and spatulas. For the ingredients, head to Waitrose & Partners, Tesco Metro or M&S Simply Food.
Finally, presentation is just as important; serve the creations on beautiful plates from the homeware sections of Oliver Bonas, Flying Tiger Copenhagen or The White Company.
