Shrove Tuesday with Burleigh's Green Regal Peacock Capsule Collection

With Shrove Tuesday just around the corner, we bring to you a pancake recipe with a twist this year. In partnership with Lavender & Lovage try these 'Porridge Pancakes' at home this Shrove Tuesday; perfectly served on our Green Regal Peacock collection.

Delicious porridge pancakes that are amazingly light and fluffy; these pancakes make a healthy breakfast and are especially delicious when served with maple syrup and sliced bananas.

Serves: 4 to 6 

Preparation time: 30 mins 

Cook time: 15 minutes 


  • 40g (porridge) oats (this recipe used jumbo oats, however any oats are fine)
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup 
  • 150ml milk
  • 1 large free-range egg (beaten)
  • A little butter for cooking the pancakes
  • 2 bananas, sliced 
  • Maple Syrup to serve 


Step 1 - Place the oats into a jug or large mug and add the milk, set to one side to allow the oats to soften and swell slightly,

Step 2 - Sift the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk with the soaked oats, maple syrup and the egg.

Step 3 - Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.

Step 4 - Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. Once melted, add a ladle of batter, and two or three more ladles, depending on the size of your pan. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm (½in) in thickness.

Step 5 - Repeat until all the batter is used up. (You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven, but they taste best fresh out the pan!) Serve with the sliced bananas, maple syrup (or honey), or a topping of your choice.
