And I love simple when it comes to cooking!
But which kind of pancake to make?
Well yes, there are various different kinds of pancakes out there.
Different kinds of pancake
Being a Brit I love a good ‘ole fashioned English pancake… which I must admit is pretty much the same as the French crêpe, so much so that we probably stole the recipe from the French some time back in the day.
Talking of French pancakes, as well as the crêpe there’s also the Breton galette, which is a speciality of Brittany / Norther France, using buckwheat and usually served with a savoury topping or filling.

Oh and buckwheat is totally gluten-free, so nice for those that try to avoid gluten / are celiac.
Moving across the Atlantic ocean, there’s the American pancake, usually to be found loitering in stacks at the diner for brunch!
I could go on, but this post will be never ending….

Easy but delicious pancake recipes
English pancake and French crêpe recipe
I’d been just chucking a bunch of ingredients into a blender and making so-so pancakes until I got round to tracking down a really easy, but totally delicious, recipe for making pancakes.
The recipe is over on BBC Good Food – and I know it so well know, I can make it without even having to check it. Which is great for busy school mornings.
I love these English pancakes / French crêpes with a very simple lemon juice and sprinkles of sugar topping.
But of course there’s myriad toppings and fillings for pancakes… we’ve put together a list of a 100 easy to chuck on or in toppings and fillings.
American pancakes recipe
As a Brit I think of American pancakes as a stack of deliciousness served diner style for brunch.
The very best are light and fluffy and rock when served with bacon drizzled with maple syrup.
Here’s a lovely recipe for light, fluffy, delicious American style pancakes from Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen.
Breton galette recipe
Now this Breton galette style pancake is made with buckwheat… which means it is gluten-free.
So kind of a two birds with one stone recipe.
However, it is very much a savoury pancake recipe and I must say it’s an acquired taste.
I love them with a very traditional gruyère cheese and ham filling. Fried egg also works well.
This recipe is from the brilliant Doves Farm, who, coincidentally, I buy all my flour from.
So there you go, that’s the pancake recipes nailed…
