Making Pancakes

Pancakes are simple to make, delicious to eat and a little bit different all over the world.

From the flat crepe style of Europe to the thick American breakfast pancake, to the super-fluffy Japanese variety, there’s a pancake recipe to suit all tastes. 

A good way to use up any leftover eggs you have, a traditional pancake mix is also a great way to treat yourself to a nutritious and filling weekend breakfast.

We've got simple recipes for British pancakes, American pancakes and Japanese pancakes for you to choose from. Just be sure to use RSPCA Assured milk and RSPCA Assured eggs to make your weekend pancakes higher welfare.

Pancake day 2020

This year Pancake Day is on Tuesday, 25 February.

Higher welfare pancake recipes

By looking for the RSPCA Assured logo when you buy eggs for your pancakes, you know the hens that laid your eggs were inspected to RSPCA welfare standards and weren’t kept in cages. Hens raised on RSPCA Assured farms are kept in barns with plenty of space, perches and nest boxes or in free-range systems with access to an outside range.
