By choosing our free-range white eggs, you’re not just enhancing your culinary experience; you’re also supporting a more humane and environmentally friendly approach to egg production.

So, whether you’re whipping up classic buttermilk pancakes, fluffy American-style stacks, or thin crepes, our free-range white eggs are the perfect ingredient to make your Pancake Day celebrations truly special.

We’ve chosen our two favourite recipes to ensure you have a flipping good pancake day – we’d love to hear what your favourite topping is.

BBC Good Food have a fab recipe:


– 100g plain flour

– 2 eggs

– 300ml semi-skimmed milk

– 1 tbsp sunflower oil or vegetable, plus extra for frying

– pinch salt


– Put 100g plain flour and a pinch of salt into a large mixing bowl.

– Make a well in the centre and crack 2 eggs into the middle.

– Pour in about 50ml from the 300ml of semi-skimmed milk and 1 tbsp sunflower oil then start whisking from the centre, gradually drawing the flour into the eggs, milk and oil. Once all the flour is incorporated, beat until you have a smooth, thick paste. Add a little more milk if it is too stiff to beat.

– Add a good splash of milk and whisk to loosen the thick batter. While still whisking, pour in a steady stream of the remaining milk. Continue pouring and whisking until you have a batter that is the consistency of slightly thick single cream.

– Heat the pan over a moderate heat, then wipe it with oiled kitchen paper.

– Ladle some batter into the pan, tilting the pan to move the mixture around for a thin and even layer. Quickly pour any excess batter into the mixing bowl, return the pan to the heat.

– Leave to cook, undisturbed, for about 30 secs. If the pan is the right temperature, the pancake should turn golden underneath after about 30 secs and will be ready to turn.

– Hold the pan handle, ease a palette knife under the pancake, then quickly lift and flip it over. Make sure the pancake is lying flat against the base of the pan with no folds, then cook for another 30 secs before turning out onto a warm plate.

– Continue with the rest of the batter, serving them as you cook or stack onto a plate.

And for ours followers that are #coeliac we love Becky Excell Gluten Free recipe for simplicity and ease as well as taste – just 3 ingredients:


– 220 g gluten free plain flour

– 4 large eggs

– 450 ml milk (dairy free if needed or lactose free if low FODMAP)


– Pour your gluten free plain flour into a large mixing bowl.

– Crack in four large eggs and whisk / beat together until smooth.

– Gradually pour in your milk whilst whisking. Do this until you have a lovely, thin gluten free pancake batter. Place into a jug – now you’re ready to make your pancakes!

– Heat a little oil (just under a tbsp) in a frying pan – make sure the pan is nice and hot.

– Pour the batter evenly into your frying pan, and tilt the pan to ensure that the entire base is covered.

– Fry for about 1 minute or until the edges are starting to look cooked. Then flip and cook for a further 20-30 seconds.

– Repeat till you have enough pancakes for everyone.

– Top with whatever you fancy and enjoy!
