Each stove is different so adjust your plate heat accordingly. Too hot and the pancake will burn while too cold will result in a pancake taking too long to cook. They should cook for a max of 30 seconds per side.

Enjoy your pancakes with a filling of your choice.

Have you ever tried a pancake filled with savoury mince – delicious. Chicken mince with crumbled hard-boiled egg is also great.
