This clever baking set
This 12-piece baking set features three large mixing bowls complete with easy-pour sides to make making and transferring your pancake mix into the pan so much simpler.
A handy electric hand whisk
There's nothing worse than lumpy batter, is there? Finding a lump of flour in your crepe completely ruins the experience, hence why a whisk is a must-have this Pancake Day. (Electric whisk too pricey? Opt for a manual whisk instead.)

Say goodbye to messy batter spills with this squeezy batter mixer and dispenser, featuring a useful wire whisk.
This non-stick crepe pan
Forgot the perfect recipe for pancakes? Worry not, this pancake pan, which features an ingredient list and some simple pancake-making instructions, has got your back.
These measuring essentials

The top topping of them all
Of all the pancake toppings to choose from, Canadian maple syrup is a classic. (A Pancake Day go-to of mine is maple syrup and bacon – honestly, it tastes divine.)
A crepe game-changer
Keen to recreate those effortlessly thin crepes from your favourite crepe stand? This is the tool you need – heat it up, pour the batter on, and use the handy wooden scraper to evenly distribute. It's that simple.
These mega wide spatulas
For tossing your pancakes with ease, a wider spatula is a must. This two-pack of heat resistant and dishwasher safe silicone spatulas make flipping your crepes a breeze.

It's not Pancake Day without lashings of Nutella, is it? For the dream combo, top your Nutella with sliced strawberries or banana and a spray of whipped cream.
This fun mini pancake pan
For a fun twist on pancakes, this non-stick mini pancake maker features a range of quirky animal designs. (If you're making pancakes for kids, this is sure to be a hit.)
A gigantic bottle of Lotus (and a huge bag of biscuit bits)
Got a thing for Lotus Biscoff spread? This 1kg bottle of topping sauce and bag of crushed crumbs is the ultimate pancake topping combination.
