Flippin' good fun.

IDS love Pancake Day.

KIt's a chance to get stirring things in the kitchen and have great fun tossing pancakes or having a race!

So make the most of Shrove Tuesday on February 17.

Here is a basic pancake recipe to get you and the little ones started: BASIC PAC P NCAKE RECIPE (Makes about 12 small pancakes) INGREDIENTS: 100g white plain flour 1 egg 150ml milk 150ml water 1 teaspoon olive oil (plus more for greasing the pan) or butter SIFT the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre and break in the egg. Add a little milk and stir gently. Add the rest of the milk slowly and stir until smooth. Stir in the water and oil and beat for one minute.

(If you have an electric whisk put all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until you have a smooth batter).

Heat a drop of oil or a knob of butter in an omelette or frying pan. When the pan is really hot, pour in about three tablespoons of batter.

Cook for just under a minute - using a spatula to keep an eye on how it's cooking.

Now the fun bit ... FLIP IT - or, if you find too many end up on the floor, turn it over with the spatula.

Cook the other side until it's golden brown. Enjoy with lemon juice and a little sugar or smooth over chocolate spread or jam. OR try one of these delicious fillings.
