All You Need is Love Pancakes

all you need is love pancakes

Spices like cinnamon and cardamon have long been hailed as aphrodisiacs and rose petals are a universal symbol of love. This Valentine’s Day, our ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE BLEND makes it easy to use these spices in your cooking - perfect sprinkled over fresh fruit, ice cream and these light, fluffy pancakes.

  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Serves: 2

  • Heat rating: 0/5
  • Dietary: none


  • 70ml milk (any type)
  • 1 medium egg - beaten
  • 70g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Syrup, ice cream and fresh fruit (eg blueberries, raspberries or chopped banana) to serve


  • ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE BLEND: Nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, rose petals, cayenne, long pepper, cubeb, black pepper, cardamon Please note if you're making a bigger batch, you'll need to scale up the fresh ingredients in proportion but the spices only by 2/3 or it will be too spicy!


  1. Mix the flour with the sugar, a pinch of salt and ½ tsp ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE BLEND then make a well in the centre. Whisk in the egg and milk to a smooth, thick batter (stir in an optional 2 tbsp fruit if you like)
  2. Heat a large frying pan then wipe with oil. Spoon the pancake mixture into the pan to make pancakes about 7-8cm in diameter (you may have to do this in batches) then cook for 1 minute or until the pancakes begin to puff up and bubble on the surface, flip over and cook for 1 minute or until golden and cooked through
  3. Serve the pancakes with syrup, ice cream and fresh fruit sprinkled with a little more of the ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE BLEND
