Expert Pancake Maker and former star of the Great British Bake Off, Benjamina Ebuehi, has joined the Big Pancake Party!

what better way to use my love of pancakes?

We’re very excited to have Benjamina join the Big Pancake Party; on the Great British Bake Off she won Batter Week with her excellent lace pancakes, so such a pancake making expert is a great addition to all those who have signed up to make a difference this Pancake Day.

Upon joining the Big Pancake Party, this is what Benjamina had to say,

“I worked as a teaching assistant before I was on Bake Off and I saw kids arriving at school hungry every day. For some of these kids, their free school dinner was the only meal they’d eat that day. It was very disheartening to see.

“I wanted to get involved with the Big Pancake Party because I don’t want to see kids going to school hungry and what better way to use my love of pancakes?”

To celebrate joining the party, Benjamina came down to Macaulay Primary School to show one lucky year 5 class how to make her specialty lace pancakes. If you’d like to learn how yourself, take a look at our Facebook Live video.

The Big Pancake Party is an excellent way to have a little fun and do a lot of good. Bring together your friends and family this Pancake Day for a Big Pancake Party and ask for donations for those who are going without food in England.
