Pancakes are a regular favourite in our house and I have posted about them on a few occasions, here and here! We are still having them for breakfast every day and while it works for getting the kids out of bed on a school morning, without me having to scream at them, I can see it carrying on for some time yet.
For Shrove Tuesday we need to do something more exciting than our usual sugar and lemon. So we will be tossing them (I have been practising – I didn’t drop any but managed to hit the ceiling a couple of times). But we need to think about some different toppings. I suggested a savoury version, but there wasn’t much support for that (although watch this space as I did find some tasty recipes).
The kids prefer sweet toppings and have asked for Nutella, squirty cream, chocolate sauce (I do a home made version with melted chocolate and double cream), ice cream and ‘sweets’. I think they are envisioning a mini version of the ice cream factory at Pizza Hut! I am going to add a selection of fresh fruit – sliced banana, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries to provide a little healthy balance. And for me? For a quick grown up pancake I like vanilla ice cream with a little orange liqueur drizzled over, but I would love to hear your suggestions.
