A entire day officially dedicated to arguably the most fun type of food, pancake day deserves a celebration to equal its awarded status. This day only happens once a year (well, for conformists, that is), so don’t waste it!
Many dilemmas crop up on the day: bought or homemade? American or English? Flip or spatula? And most importantly, what to slather on it? Traditionalists already know their topping: lemon and sugar; Nutella and banana; golden syrup, perhaps. However, for those more adventurous pancake-pros, we’ve suggested a few fantastic, yummy and far-out fillings!
What’s your favourite pancake topping? Join the debate and share ideas on social media by hashtagging #whatsyourpancake!
- The Canadian
Slather your pancake in maple syrup and top with a couple of crispy rashers of bacon. So wrong but oh so right.
- Grandma’s Apple Pie
Sautee slices of apple with a good shake of cinnamon and sugar, and serve with cream or vanilla ice cream.
- Shroomy Blues
One to try if savoury is your thing: fried mushrooms covered with crumbly blue cheese.
- Very Berry
Is it healthy? Who cares. Blueberries and raspberries with ice cream of your choice!
- Chocolate Orange
Oh, yes. We’re going there. Segments of fresh orange swirled with melted dark chocolate! *Disclaimer* We do not take responsibility for any cardiac or taste-bud-related injuries…
