Oh the things we do for pancakes.
Such is the immense lure of these buttery, battery discs of goodness that we're seemingly prepared to risk everything for them – our dignity, our kitchens, our skin, possibly even the wellbeing of our friends and family – as we step up to the daunting task of flipping them over in the pan.
But let's be honest; how often do we really pull that off with any level of success? Just ask the seven poor unfortunates below...
Don't use a cheap pan
If you're going to use a cheap pan, don't stand right in front of someone else
Quit while you're ahead
Don't do absolutely anything that's done in this video
When things go wrong, improvise
If you haven't yet mastered circular pancakes, resist the urge to attempt butterfly pancakes
And for goodness' sake, know your limits
So reckon you can flip like a pro? Try out one of these delicious pancake recipes.
Or alternatively, if these videos have put the fear of God into you why not head out and grab some pancakes in one of these spots...
