A Lower Earley care home chef made more than 100 pancakes last week - and has shared the secret to their success.

Reidents at Austen House, on Kilnsea Drive, marked Shove Tuesday with delicious treats on February 28. 

Head chef Ainsworth Brown flipped more than 100 pancakes, serving them up with sweet and savoury fillings for all the eager staff and residents.

He said: “My secret to the best pancakes is all in the whipping. Give it some elbow grease when mixing the batter and you’ll get perfect pancakes every time.

"I like experimenting with the fillings – the residents’ favourites are chocolate spread and banana, strawberry jam and of course, good old fashioned lemon and sugar!”
