From fluffy flapjacks to wafer-thin crêpes, we've got the best pancake recipes around.

The classic stack

Big, fat, fluffy pancakes in a pile. Slather with butter and drizzle with maple syrup. Simple, classic.

Zucchini cornbread pancakes

Despite the zucchini, Izy Hossack’s recipe makes great sweet pancakes – or you can leave the sugar out and serve them up with eggs. 

Flour-free banana and coconut pancakes

David and Luise from the Green Kitchen work their magic with this delicious gluten-free take on pancakes.

Crêpes with warm maple oranges

My pancake preference has always been for lovely thin crêpes. Louise Fulton-Keats' recipe, which uses eggs, wholemeal flour and no sugar makes for a healthy breakfast treat.

Ravello-style stuffed pancakes

This is pure comfort food; spirals of pancakes are filled with ham, sausage meat, smoked cheese and ricotta, then cut in half and baked until piping hot. 

Ricotta pancakes with fig jam and cream

Margaret Fulton uses ricotta in her batter for incredibly light and fluffy pancakes.

Blueberry pancake stack

For the prettiest breakfast around, top your stack with a berry compote. Just simmer the fruit with a little sugar for a few minutes and you have yourself a truly divine pancake topping. 

Duck crêpes with pears, walnuts and curly endive

Duck and pancakes are a classic Chinese partnership. Adrian Richardson’s recipe gives it a French twist.  

Coconut berry pancakes

Why mess around with putting berries on top of your pancakes when you could just put them straight in the batter? 

Crêpes au beurre noisette

If you want perfect crêpes, a Parisian pastry chef is surely the person to see about them. Fanny Zanotti’s recipe harks back to the childhood pleasures of lemon and sugar, with the added sophistication of the burnt butter.

Soft potato pancakes

A lovely savoury pancake from Alain Ducasse – these make a great lunch served with a light salad.
