With two weeks to go until Shrove Tuesday, why not invest in the Tala Retro Pancake Kit?
Not strictly traditional as this is geared more to your fat American-style pancake, the kit contains all you need to create a foolproof batch, not least a non-stick lidded pan, allowing you to flip your pancakes without sticking them to the ceiling. Stay cool handles should mean you don't burn yourself either – so even the most inept of cooks can produce an impressive stack of pancakes.
Also included are a batter dispenser and a heart shaped pancake ring for those romantic breakfasts in bed.
