Scrumptious Pancakes

Scrumptious Pancakes

With Shrove Tuesday (or Pancake Day as it is more commonly known) coming up next week, I thought it was quite appropriate that I share some sweet treat ideas for you to enjoy.
Pancakes are one of those things that you could put anything on. For a quick tea; Rob likes to make a bean chilli, that you then put in a pancake. It works really well!

Today I am sharing some lovely sweet treats that would work well for breakfast or for puddings.

I have used 2 different styles of pancakes for these. The traditional large thin pancake made using a batter mix of 100g plain flour, 2 eggs, 300ml milk, 1 tbsp of oil. Simply add all to a bowl and mix.

I also used a ''Drop Scone'' recipe where you make smaller, thicker and sweeter pancakes. Use 125g self raising flour, 2 tbsp caster sugar, 1 egg, 150ml milk. Mix all together.

Add some of these toppings to them and you have some really sweet treats.

Homemade mixed fruit coulis with Greek style yogurt and fresh raspberries:
To make your coulis: simmer some mixed frozen berries in a pan with a teaspoon of sugar. Once it starts to simmer, layer Scotch pancakes and coulis, then top with yogurt and fresh raspberries.

Pear, goji berry and honey traditional pancake:
Slice up your fresh pear and layer on the pancake. Sprinkle goji berries, drizzle honey, then roll up.

Scotch pancakes with natural yogurt, blueberries and honey:
Layer up your pancakes and top with a good spoonful of yogurt. Sprinkle with blueberries and drizzle the honey over the top.

Homemade coulis with Greek style yogurt dip and fresh raspberries:
Using the same method as before to make the coulis but spread it on the pancake and roll. Have a bit of yogurt on the side for dipping!

Sprinkles, golden syrup and raspberry stack:
This one will definitely give you a sugar rush! Stack up your scotch pancakes, pour over golden syrup and add sprinkles! Top with a raspberry and wait for the hit!

Traditional lemon and sugar:
This is probably the best way and most traditional way to eat your pancakes. Squeeze lemon juice over the pancake and then sprinkle some sugar and roll!

Hope these give you an appetite for getting experimental.
Enjoy Pancake Day!
