Pancake Day is here and that means only one thing this Shrove Tuesday (March 1)

Tonight’s the night to indulge in some delicious fluffy pancakes – and we’ve got a recipe for even the average flipper to master the perfect pancake.

Even better, you’ll need just five ingredients – which are probably already in your cupboards.

No matter your topping or filling favourites, this recipe from Anthony Barnes, the executive chef at Cardiff’s Marriott Hotel will see you through Pancake Day

How to make the perfect pancake batter

Lightly whisk the two eggs

Sieve the flour into a bowl and make a well in the middle

Add the salt and oil to the well

Pour the whisked eggs into the flour

Add half of the milk

Mix well then add the rest of the milk

Warm your pan up on the hob

Add a little oil and tip away any excess
