Luckily, Donegal chef Brian McDermott has shared an “easy and scrumptious” recipe that will ensure whatever you dish up this Pancake Tuesday is more fluffy than frightening.

In a non-stick pan add little rapeseed oil on a medium heat and pour the mix into the centre of the pan and allow the batter to naturally form.

Cook on either side to create a golden light pancake.

Drizzle with honey and fresh lemon juice.

Brian said while this is how he likes his pancakes finished, feel free to add your own favourite toppings.
