Tom Collins Gin Pancakes

Pancake day is FAST approaching, but those delicious and fluffy pancakes don't need to be drizzled with boring lemon juice or Nutella. I mean, yes Nutella is delicious but. I promise these are better.

Have a more adult pancake day in your household.

Easy Recipe

Impress Friends & Family



130g Self Raising Flour

1 Large Egg

130ml Full Fat Milk or Alternative of your choice

2tbs Caster Sugar

1 Lemon Zested


2tbs Lemon Curd

50ml Gin


100g Sugar

75ml Water

50ml Gin

Natural Full Fat Yogurt or Cream

Crushed Almonds



- Add the sugar and water into a pan and bring to the boil. Lower the heat to a high simmer and cook until the water has halved, or the mixture starts to look thick and syrupy. Once done, add to a jar and leave to cool. Once cold add the gin and mix in.


- Start by heating a frying pan or pancake pan over a medium/low heat.

- Now, in a mixing bowl, add the egg, sugar and milk and whisk.

- Next, sift in the flour and grate in the lemon zest and whisk together until well combined.

- Lightly butter or oil the pan or if you’re using a non-stick pan, you don’t have to add any fat.

- Using a cup or ladle, add about 40ml of the mixture per pancake. You can cook them one at a time and add them to a low heated oven to keep warm whilst you cook the rest.

- Now, mix your lemon curd and gin together in a bowl.

- Start to stack your pancakes and top with some syrup, lemon curd, fresh yogurt, crushed almonds and lemon rind.
