Pancake Day 2022 is here and it’s time to get creative in the kitchen. Check out our different types of pancakes below for some delicious inspiration:
The French Crepe
As the name suggests, this culinary delight originated in France in the 13th Century. The name is derived from the Latin word ‘crispa’ and refers to the crepes ‘curly and crispy’ edges. You can enjoy these treats with sweet or savoury fillings! Why not try filling yours with ham and cheese for an indulgent lunch time snack!
The American Way
These treats are made with a raising agent to create much thicker and fluffier results than most other pancake recipes. The traditional American topping is maple syrup and bacon – a real treat for those who love a sweet & salty mix of flavours.
The Scotch Style
Similar to American pancakes but slightly denser with crispy edges. Originating from Scotland, they used to be called drop scones as they’re made by dropping batter onto a griddle. To enjoy them the traditional way, serve hot with a big dollop of butter on top.
No dairy? No problem! Simply replace dairy ingredients in pancake recipes with your choice of plant based milk. Try topping with coconut yoghurt, berries and maple syrup. Or perhaps for a more indulgent treat, try bananas and dark chocolate – scrumptious!
Gluten Free Option
Swap out ordinary flour for any kind of gluten free flour and whisk up a batter in a matter of minutes! Most traditional pancake toppings are gluten free so take your pick! Try the sweet and zesty lemon and sugar topping, or go big with Nutella, berries and cream!
