Nigella Lawson has her own recipe for “thick, spongy American pancakes”, perfect with maple syrip or even bacon. The recipe was featured in her book How To Be a Domestic Goddess, published in 2000.
Heat a smooth griddle or pan on the stove, the method advises.
Tip the batter onto the hot pan to cook.
Nigella’s tip for cooking American pancakes is to flip them when you see the upperside of the pancake bubbling, and then cook for “one minute, if that” on the other side.
If you fancy another kind of pancake, try Mary Berry’s Scotch pancake recipe.
Appearing on BBC’s Classic Marry Berry in 2018, she shared a recipe for scotch pancakes, or drop scones.
Mary adds orange zest to her batter, a delicious addition.
What about a flatter, traditional pancake?
These call for a very simple basic pancake recipe.
