We made our pretty pancake stack using our our Mini Pancake Maker makes perfect little pancakes, cooking both sides at once. All you need to do is add batter and close the lid until both sides are brown – easy! And no scrambled pancake to clear off the pan, or the ceiling, at the end. So simple, yet so effective. Then top with whatever you fancy – berries, yoghurt, honey, syrup… mouth watering yet? And with the included ladle, batter spreader and spatula, it couldn’t be easier to make delicious pancakes, just how you like them, every time.

Don’t just take our word for it – our customers love how easy it is to make delicious pancakes in our pancake maker too:

“This little gadget is my mini pancake-making friend. It cooks beautiful pancakes evenly, and the result is always fluffy. Sometimes I turned the pancakes over, sometimes I didn’t but didn’t make much difference to the quality. The machine is easy to clean and didn’t take long to warm up from being switched on. I recommend this product! Lakeland customer, via website
