But what constitutes the ‘perfect’ pancake? Should you use salt or not? A little vanilla extract? And what about the best toppings?

Not to fear, we’ve produced a video guide on making the perfect pancakes to wow the family, and it’s very quick and simple.

You’ll need the pancake staples of course - flour, milk, eggs and caster sugar. But we’ve also included two quick recipes for a banana filling and a toffee sauce!

Of course, you opt for a simple lemon and sugar topping, or why not go savoury with chilli con carne or cheese and ham?
