Gordon Ramsay Shares How To Make The Perfect Pancakes
In case you'd miss it, today is Pancake Day and if you're looking for a recipe to create the perfect pancake then Gordon Ramsay has got your back - he'll even show you how to do the perfect flip.
To make pancakes worthy of the sweary chef himself, you'll need to mix 100g of flour, 300ml of milk and two whole eggs together in a bowl until it's nice and smooth and then leave it to rest for about 15 minutes.
While you're waiting, heat up your non-stick pan and give it a quick spritz with oil.
When the oil is starting to smoke - and your batter is suitably well-rested - grab a ladle of the mix and dollop it into the hot pan.
Roll it around the pan to make the pancake super thin so it crisps up nicely and then leave it to cook.
To ensure the perfect flip, Ramsay recommends tapping your pan twice, giving it a little shake to move the pancake to the edge of the pan and then push away and flip back up with the wrist - simple as that... when you're a Michelin-starred chef anyway.
Once flipped, Ramsay reckons it only needs 30 seconds of cooking time because it should already be pretty much ready to go.
Now, one of the great things about pancakes is you can pretty much chuck whatever you fancy/have lying around on top of them and it'll turn out OK.

But if you want your pancakes a la Ramsay, then he suggests raspberries, strawberries, a bit of honey, a squeeze of lemon juice all topped off with some fresh lemon zest.
Ramsay then folds his pancakes into quarters or rolls it up and dives straight in.
While Ramsay's pancakes look pretty spot on, the £19 full English served up at his Savoy Grill restaurant firmly divided opinions when he shared a snap of it online last year.
Some social media users were less than impressed by the pricey breaky with one branding it 'an utter rip off'.

But Ramsay defended the meal, telling Insider: "I stand by it. I swear by it. And it is one meal that I would ever eat as a last supper.
"It has to be a full English breakfast with extra baked beans."
He added: "And you know what? If you're worried about the price, you can't f***ing afford it."
