It's here: Pancake Day!
It’s that time of year once again – pancake day! We love pancakes here at Egg Recipes and have put together a whole bunch of delicious recipes for you to try when the big day comes. From sweet to savoury, these pancake creations are flippin’ good!
In the US pancakes are taken very seriously. Considered a breakfast staple by many, Americans know what they like and more importantly, can tell the taste of a quality pancake when it’s put in front of them. If you’re looking for a true, authentic taste of the big apple then our New York buttermilk pancakes are just the treat. Stack up on a plate with delicious crispy bacon and drizzle over a generous helping of sweet maple syrup before tucking in.
Despite being very different foods (albeit both delicious) bubble and squeak and pancakes share an unlikely bond. As pancakes are the Shrove Tuesday staple because of their tasty knack for using up odds and ends, bubble and squeak has been a signature leftover favourite for generations by mixing unused veg with creamy mash potato. Why not get the most out of the food you have left in the house by cooking up a hearty bubble and squeak pancake, giving your Shrove Tuesday a traditional feel with a modern twist.
Adventurous varieties can definitely be delicious, but for some nothing quite beats a classic pancake. A minimalist triumph that only needs a zing of lemon and some sugar, there’s just something about the humble, golden fluffy pancake that makes it a staple for Shrove Tuesday. Quick, simple and absolutely delicious.
There’s no harm in indulging yourself every once in a while, so why not do it with rich chocolate chips and juicy caramelised apples, all marbled together within a tender golden pancake. It may sound like there’s a lot to do, but with as little as 5 minutes prep and 15 minutes cooking time, you can be dining on a delicious dish in no time. Serve with hearty dollop of ice cream for extra tastiness.
If you prefer your pancakes a little fancier, then this recipe is just what you need. Indulgent and packed with flavours, serve with ground black pepper, freshly chopped dill and a spoonful of crème fraiche if you feel like going the extra mile.
These are just a few of our picks from our new collection of recipes. To see the rest, including some fantastic international flavours, visit our fantastic pancake recipes and have a go at what takes your fancy. Happy Pancake Day!
