Banana and Buckwheat Pancakes

Surrey Superchef Steve Drake provides us with the perfect back-to-basics fluffy pancakes in preparation for Shrove Tuesday.

“I love pancakes and Shrove Tuesday is a great excuse to cook these delicious, fluffier style of pancake.  Great with creme fraiche, maple syrup, blueberries and even a rasher of crispy bacon.

Rather than the traditional thin pancakes these are more of the thicker fluffier style with I prefer” – Steve Drake
