Betsy Bunni’s perfect pancake recipe!

It’s Pancake Day, Betsy Bunni’s favourite day of the year! Betsy would love to share her recipe with you, so that you can make her extra special pancakes at home!


Make a fun family afternoon of it and see who can make the best pancake! Betsy and all of us here at Bunn Leisure would love to see a picture of your creations so don’t forget to upload a pic to our Facebook and Twitter pages! (And make sure an adult helps you).



  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 300ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 pinch of salt


1.Put the flour and salt into a large bowl and make a well in the centre.

2.Crack the eggs into the well and add the milk, whisking until you have a smooth thick batter (a bit thicker than single cream). Pour into a jug.

3.Wipe oil onto a small non-stick frying pan with a piece of kitchen paper, then heat the pan.

4.Pour the batter into the pan – after about 30 seconds, nudge the edge with a spatula. When it moves easily that means that side is ready.

5.Ask an adult to flip the pancake in the pan or turn and cook again until golden brown on both sides.

6.Make a pancake pile and then serve when you have as many as you need. They will keep like this for up to 24 hours.

 *Betsy’s top tip* - Why not make the pancakes in advance – then freeze up to a month before, ready to scoff on Shrove Tuesday!
