Pancakes have Been Perfected with the Latest Appliances

There are loads of way to make the perfect pancakes for Mum on Mother’s Day. We’re going to take you through the different appliances that can help you prepare an awesome brekkie for Mum, with a few little tips along the way to make the perfect stack.

Pancake Maker – The Easy Way

Making delicious fluffy pancakes is easy with a pancake maker – it’s what they’re designed for! They are ideal for making a stack because they will come out golden, round and the perfect size every time.

The Kambrook Perfect Pancake Press is going to have tongues wagging and mouths drooling on Mother’s Day. It features two large pancake wells to make two at once. Non-stick plates ensure they come out deliciously. The Kambrook Golden Pancake Perfection makes a stack as good as it sounds. It heats two pancakes quickly and evenly for hungry families. It can also be stored on its side which is handy – but it looks so good you may want to keep it on your kitchen bench.

The Right Blend

The secret to a good pancake is blending the pancake batter first. It will help you to get rid of lumps and assists in cooking evenly and smoothly. A good tip is to add all of the liquids at the bottom of the blades before adding the flour

Whilst you may love using them for a smoothie, a NutriBullet makes incredible pancake batter. Cleanup is easy after use so you can easily make a delicious smoothie while your pancakes are cooking. It’s the perfect Mother’s Day breakfast for Mum! The Breville Bluicer can blend, juice and prepare pancake batter at the flick of a switch.

The Braun Multiquick Hand Blender is your new all-in-one kitchen tool. With a blender, whisk and chopper attachments, you can make a 3-course breakfast for Mum from the one appliance. Fluffy pancakes, some scrambled eggs and home-made hash browns, no sweat!

A huge 800-watt motor can help you breeze through soup mixes and thick sauces in seconds. Those pancake batter lumps stand no chance!

Mixer it Up

TWith your pancake batter sorted, maybe you can whip up your own ice-cream from scratch to really make a serious impression for Mum. Impossible? Not with the latest stand mixer appliances.

The Smeg 50s Retro Stand Mixer is her new favourite appliance that she will just love to display on her benchtop. Inspired by a bygone era, there’s no trendier way to cook up a storm in the kitchen. With 10 settings, move from pancake batter to whipping egg whites at the flip of a switch. To perfectly top off your pancakes, the Smeg Ice Cream Maker will leave your whole family salivating.

It’s robust enough to last for years, and it’s classic styling will impress for just as long.

Don’t Forget a Warm Cuppa
