Hurray for pancake day. Claire’s getting giddy as she’s warming up her crepe hot plate. Tomorrow we’ll be serving pancakes throughout the day; pancakes to suit all your whims and fancies.

10am – 12 : American style hot pancakes with maple syrup.

12 – 2pm: Galette: Wholemeal, savoury crepes (for veggies and meaties).

2pm – 4pm: Teatime traditionals: Pancakes with lemon juice& sugar, blueberries or Nutella.

Our Buttercup top tip for making perfect pancakes is to make the batter tonight and leave it in the fridge overnight.
