Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day as it is commonly known, is finally here. Here at New World Business Centre, Pancakes are on the brain and everyone is discussing their idea of the perfect topping. We’ve heard everything from the delicious sounding Nutella and Banana to chicken and jalapeno pizza! Finding out an individual’s perfect filling gives a great insight into their character!
The internet is full of beautiful and creative pancake ideas. Here are a few of the best and in some cases most bizarre toppings we could find online. Which one would you choose?
1. Traditional Lemon and Sugar
There is no surprise that the most common topping is the easiest to prepare! It is also one of the most delicious! Simply squirt some lemon juice and sprinkle some sugar over your stack of pancakes and enjoy.
2. Breakfast Pancakes
Simply need to add more sustenance to your morning feed? Rustle yourself up some great morning pancakes before setting off for work. Add some bacon, eggs and maple syrup for a delicious alternative to your bacon butty. It is a special occasion after all!
3. Healthy pancakes with cottage cheese and blueberries
Have you managed to keep healthy since Christmas? If so, why not stack your pancakes in layers with cottage cheese and add a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup to taste. Top with a handful of fresh blueberries.
4. Unhealthy Pancakes with Nutella and banana
Did you give up your New Year’s resolution to join the gym and eat healthily after 3 days like so many others? If so, go bananas for this topping combination! Simply smother your pancakes in chocolate and bananas. If that’s not sweet enough for you, you can sprinkle with sugar or top off with Smarties!
5. Pizza pancake
This is for all the students out there! Cook your batter a little thicker than usual to get yourself a good base and then add your toppings. Start with tomato paste and grated cheese and then simply go to town on the contents of the fridge! Pop this culinary delight under a grill to melt the cheese, and voila – pizza pancake! Perfect after a couple of Shrove Tuesday beers this evening!
