The classic lemon and sugar pancake will always be a firm favourite amongst pancake fans. However, if you fancy trying something a little different on Shrove Tuesday, Dualit have been hard at work in the kitchen to come up with five tantalising toppings for making pancakes to impress!
First, whip up a classic pancake batter. Avoid a flop with this easy pancake recipe. Depending on the size, it should allow you to make 12-15 pancakes:
To give your pancakes extra flavour, try adding a couple of teaspoons of cocoa powder, cinnamon or drops of vanilla extract to the batter before frying.
Fresh, chopped strawberries with whipped cream and a sprinkling of sugar. Finish with a scattering of grated chocolate, mint leaves or toasted almonds for classic pancake decadence.
A mix of chopped pineapple, kiwi fruit, strawberries and mango makes an exotic and refreshing pancake topping.
For the ultimate sweet indulgence! Simply drizzle warm pancakes with caramel sauce and top with crushed shortbread biscuits. Melt your favourite chocolate and add to the pancake topping.
Greek yoghurt mixed with fruit such as blueberries or banana makes an ideal breakfast pancake and healthier alternative to sugary fillings. Top with a light drizzle of honey for a natural sweetener.
Prefer a savoury option? Go gourmet with creamy camembert and mushroom. Fry chopped mushrooms with garlic, thyme leaves and a knob of butter, then mix in diced camembert and crème fraiche. Fill the pancakes with the mixture and top with more thyme. A quick and tasty alternative to sweet toppings.
