You can make three-ingredient pancakes without eggs or flour for Pancake Day

With Valentine's Day fresh in the memory, attention quickly turns to a more inclusive holiday – Pancake Day.

Unlike Valentine's Day, Shrove Tuesday can be enjoyed by singletons and couples alike. All you need is a passionate love of pancakes.

As the coronavirus pandemic has rendered almost everyone house-bound on Shrove Tuesday this year, more time can be spent on creating the perfect pancake. Under normal circumstances many would have had to choose between scoffing down a pancake before the rush hour morning commute, or patiently waiting until they return home from work to get their fix.

Most being confined to exclusively either the four walls of their home or their local supermarket does mean shop shelves are looking rather bare.

However, fear not, though that frantic trip to the shop to get eggs only to be greeted with barren shelves may spark pancake-based panic, here is the best guide on how to make pancakes without the more common ingredients of egg and flour.

You may have all three of these ingredients in your cupboard already, sparing you from the desperate dash to the supermarket.

This recipe serves one or two (depending on how hungry you are), producing six small pancakes. If you have more mouths to feed, simply double the amount of the ingredients below.
