It's Pancake Day today, and we all love a pancake, or two, or three...but what is your ultimate pancake topping?
Today is Shrove Tuesday, or also more commonly known as Pancake Day due to the tradition of eating pancakes the day before Lent, and as a foodie, it is of course one of my favourite days of the year.
We had a little poll in the office to see what our favourite pancake toppings are, and without any doubt it has to be the good old traditional lemon and sugar – we absolutely love it! However, Nutella is also a firm favourite for all our chocoholics!
So are you having pancakes today? Or had some for breakfast already, and having more tonight? Let us know what toppings you’re having, and if you are a flipper or a tosser!
Also let us know if you are having any pancake races, or doing anything bizarre –we’d love to hear.
Finally if you’re stuck for some inspirational ideas, here are my top 5 pancake topping suggestions…
Lemon and sugar (who can beat it! TIP - use fresh lemons, and roll them first to get as much juice out of them as possible)
Nutella (a chocoholic’s dream)
Banana, vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate sauce or maple syrup (or both!)
Cinnamon, apple and maple syrup (great for breakfast and smells wonderful!)
Bacon and eggs – I’ve been told that this is actually delicious – so if you’re brave enough give it a go!)
Happy Pancake Day!
