It's Pancake Time
04 February 2016
Pancake Day is just around the corner on Tuesday February 9th. Follow our simple recipe and handy tips below for perfect pancakes every time.
Are you curious about the origins of Pancake Day? Take a look at our blog post from last year to find out more.
The discussion we’re all having at the moment is what the best pancake topping is. Are you a sweet pancake fan or do you buck the trend and opt for a savoury option?
Sugar and Lemon Juice is a timeless classic and the pancake topping we have used in our recipe below. We recommend picking up a sugar dispenser such as our charming Spoonful of Sugar Glass Dispenser, it will distribute sugar evenly over your pancakes and ensuing sticky fingerprints are easily wiped clean – with no wet spoons dipping into the sugar bowl and leaving annoying clumps behind!
For maximum flavour we recommend using fresh lemons; juicing them with this Glass Juicer & Jug couldn’t be simpler. The juicer sits on top of the jug, allowing the juice to drain through to the jug below while any pips and pulp are caught in the juicer lid which can then be removed, allowing you to pour the desired quantity over your pancakes without any mess.
We’ve gone for Sugar and Lemon, but other firm topping favourites in the Garden Trading office include:
- Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana
- Blueberries, Greek Yoghurt and Honey
- Maple Syrup
- Ham and Cheese
- Goats Cheese and Butternut Squash
- Spiced Roasted Vegetables
How will you top yours?
