Pancake Day

Pancake day seems to be quite an event these days, but its a bit of a no-no if you are dairy and egg free. Surely its not possible to make a good pancake when two of the crucial ingredients are missing? Well, I developed this recipe when my eldest daughter was at nursery school and had to take pancakes in and to be honest they really are as nice as ‘normal’ pancakes. There have been a few tweaks over the years but this recipe does work consistently well, even if the pancakes are more ‘drop scone’ style than a thin lacy crepe. Although you could try and make a large thin one I find six small pancakes than can be devoured hot by two hungry children works a treat!
