Updated: May 17, 2022
Whether you’re serving guests for brunch this pancake day, or getting into the spirit with dessert at home; put on a feast that will impress everyone.
If you love a classic French crepe, or you’re more of an American-style fluffy pancake lover, we’ve got all of the ingredients you need.
For the sweet tooth
Satisfy those with a sweet tooth on pancake day with a huge stack. Suitable for any meal of the day, our favourites are:
Bacon and maple syrup – for the ultimate sweet breakfast
Nutella – the no brainer on pancake day, epic with sliced banana
Fruit and whipped cream – a refreshing topping for piping hot pancakes
For those with a more traditional palate, crepes with lemon and sugar always go down a treat.
Or for the chocolate lovers, drizzle your crepe with some chocolate sauce and sprinkle some crushed Oreos – the kids will love this one.
If savoury is your thing…
Crepes are an incredible base for a whole heap of savoury fillings.
Turn it into a breakfast wrap filled with egg, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, spinach – the list goes on.
We love the sound of a delicious crepe stuffed with sliced steak, spinach and mushrooms, drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
Spinach and ricotta pancake bake
Did you know – you can also use crepes to make a dinnertime meal? This spinach and ricotta pancake bake is a delicious way to use crepes on pancake day:
Fry off some garlic cloves and add in a can of chopped tomatoes. Reduce to a thick sauce
Wilt down a whole bag of baby spinach. Once cooled, squeeze out all of the water and roughly chop
Heat the oven to 200 degrees
Mix together 200g of ricotta with the chopped spinach, a grating of nutmeg and some salt and pepper
In a shallow baking dish, spread half of the tomato sauce over the base
Divide the spinach mixture between as many pancakes that will fit in the dish. Roll them up and place into the dish
Once all of the pancakes are filled, rolled and placed into the dish, top with the remaining tomato sauce and scatter with mozzarella and parmesan
Bake for 15-20 minutes until bubbling
