At Debenhams, we’ve unveiled the mathematical formula for the perfect pancake – eliminating sub-standard crepes across kitchens forever.
Using this formula, Debenhams staff will have the perfect pancake knowledge to provide a solution for customers shopping in the home department for pancake pans and spatulas.
Lizzie Singleton, Debenhams spokesperson, said: “L represents the number of lumps in the batter and C equals its consistency. F stands for the flipping score, k is the ideal consistency and T is the temperature of the pan.
“The perfect pan temperature is represented by m, S is the time the batter stands before cooking and E is the time the cooked pancake stands before being eaten – the closer to 100 the result is, the better the pancake.”
According to the results of a Debenhams survey, 86 per cent of households will be enjoying pancakes today, yet only 14 per cent of those surveyed are confident they know how to make, cook and flip the traditional Shrove Tuesday dessert.
Example of the perfect pancake calculation:
Now with this formula in mind, the Jamie Oliver Tefal Lemon Squeezy pancake pan can help you wow your friends and families with the perfect pancake toss.
