It is officially Pancake Day. No one can judge you for eating the same thing for lunch and dinner for breakfast, because today all the rules are off the table and all the pancakes you want can be eaten. We’ve got everything covered from some of our fave recipes to what your Pancake Day topping says about you.
The Classic Crepe
The classic crepe has got to be up there with one of our favourites. Its easy, light and you can eat 10 and not feel guilty about it. It’s a crowd pleaser.
To make these pancakes, mix together 150g plain flour, 1 large egg and 325ml milk until you make a thick but slightly runny mixture, melt 30g of butter in a pan over medium heat and add to the mixture. Cook until both sides are slightly brown, and then add your toppings. Enjoy!
Bottomless Brunch Pancakes
The ultimate brunch dish just got even better with this savoury pancake stack. Pancakes, with bacon, eggs and tomatoes, it’s the perfect pancake for anyone craving something different this year. Make it extra special with a glass of bubbly to make it feel like you are getting the full bottomless brunch experience.
For a healthier version, try bacon avocado and tomatoes as a topping of choice.
Chocolate and raspberry pancakes
Have a berry nice Pancake Day celebration with these chocolatey pancakes. Cocoa powder gives the batter it's chocolate flavour, and raspberries are added in for a fruity twist. Finish off this impressive stack with a drizzle of honey and pomegranate seeds.
For a bananas take that's a little more indulgent, try this banoffee pancake recipe. Layer up with pancakes, bananas and pecans before drizzling with a warm caramel sauce.
