The trick to getting the fluffiest American Pancakes is whipping the egg whites. The kids love helping me make these breakfast classics then smothering them in toppings.
German Pancake is a spectacle that is always greeted with great excitement at our house. The enormous sharing pancake can be smothered in your favourite jams and spreads then loaded up with fruit.
This hearty salad is so good we eat it once a week during asparagus season. I love chorizo but you can use whichever sausage you like.
As baking is not my forte I have to rely on idiot-proof recipes and Magic Layer Cake is one of them. The magic comes as the one batter splits into 3 delicious layers as it bakes. The custard middle makes this cake taste like Crème Brûlée.
There is so much to love about these mixer bowls. Everyone can choose their own colourful ingredients and they’re full of nutrition. You have most of the ingredients in your cupboards and fridge.

Marrowfat Pea and Bacon Fritters are ridiculously good and so easy to make. They’re gluten free to boot.
American Meatloaf meat Scotch Eggs in this fantastic centerpiece for Sunday lunch. The kids love it because it’s basically sausage and egg.
Imagine a hot, slightly boozy pain au chocolat and you’ve got this dessert. When I have stale bread I knock up this pudding because it’s incredibly easy to make and tastes amazing.
Toad in the hole is an old fashioned favourite because it’s comforting and simple. Sausages surrounded by Yorkshire pudding covered in onion gravy is a great weeknight family meal.
