Flippin' Fantastic!

March 4, 2014

Yes, it’s Shrove Tuesday, so all the pancake and flipping puns can come out in force for one day only.
What a great excuse to indulge in pancakes (not that we need any excuse, they are a pretty regular Sunday tea in our house), and you can have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you so desire-it’s allowed today. It’s quite possibly compulsory.

I thought I would do a quick round up of pancake recipes, just in case anyone is in need of pancake related inspiration….

Sweet Pancakes
Obviously you can spread your pancake with honey, jam, lemon curd, chocolate spread, or stick with tradition and go for the frankly unbeatable lemon juice and sugar, but here are a few other options if you want to push the boat out…

  • Lemon cheese pancakes-apparently these end up like a pancake cheesecake-what’s not to love about that?!

  • Apple Calvados Pancakes-I love the fact that these are a great way of using up wrinkly apples too!
