Pancake Day Ideas

Tomorrow is one of my faaaaavourite foodie days of the year. Pancake Day.

When I was growing up we always used to have ours with lemon juice and sugar or jam. Simple and delicious, yes, but not very adventurous.

I like to come up with lots of much more exciting options these days. And of course pancakes aren't only reserved for Shrove Tuesday!

On our menu for tomorrow (Daisy's choice) will be pancakes filled with gruyere cheese, parma ham & portobello mushrooms, ones with strawberries & cream and some more with nutella, chopped banana & crushed hazelnuts.

How about trying some of these combinations....?

Philadephia with chopped spring onions & peppers
Mature cheddar cheese, bacon & mushrooms
Brie & cranberry sauce 
Smoked salmon, creme fraiche & chives

Cooked dessert apples & toffee sauce
Lemon meringue - lemon curd, crushed meringues & whipped cream
Eton mess - summer fruits, crushed meringues & whipped cream
A lovely healthy option is banana, honey and fat free vanilla yoghurt!

The world is your oyster when it comes to thinking up fillings that you and your family will enjoy. Be daring this year and give something new a go!

Happy pancake day, one and all! xoxox
