Our 10 favourite pancake toppings

    Discover our top 10 ways to serve pancakes on Shrove Tuesday from sticky sweet syrups to savoury combinations. Whip out the frying pan and get flipping!

    If you can't decide which sauces and garnishes to adorn your pancakes with on Shrove Tuesday, or indeed whether to go with a traditional batter, thinner crêpes, or spongey American-style pancakes, then our list of all-time favourite recipes may help you decide.

    The pairing of chocolate and banana is classic in many a dessert and certainly goes down well with pancakes. Or why not try something different like our beautiful, spherical blood orange & cardamom aebleskiver. If you're going for an even more impressive display, then our colourful tower of fluffy rainbow pancakes is ideal fodder for Instagram.

    We also have a tasty array of savoury options. Whip up a classic ham & cheese filling for crêpes or experiment with flavour combinations like squash, goat's cheese & rosemary. If you want to give your pancakes an international twist, then our mini Mexican-inspired quesadillas and Indian-style sweet potato masala dosa will deliver big flavours.
