    Add dry ingredients into a standing mixer and pulse to combine.

  • 2

    Whisk the eggs and add to the dry ingredients and mix for a few minutes.

    Pour the milk in to the bowl and whisk until everything is smooth, your mixture should be quite thick, if not add a touch more flour.

  • 4

    Separate the mixture into 3 separate bowls and add food colouring to each, stir until mixed well.

  • 5

    Place a small amount of butter into a shallow pan, place a chefs ring of preferred size in to the middle of the pan and pour in your first mixture. Flip and cook the other side, take out and leave to cool, repeat until you have no mixture left.

    Once the pancakes have cooled, it’s time to start decorating. Using the icing pen, pop on your favourite “love heart” quotes, drizzle with honey and serve to a loved one.
