Flip your way through pancake day
Tomorrow is shrove Tuesday aka Pancake day! Pancakes, fritters and drop scones are a regular on the menu in the Chapple house, this is mainly as I like nothing better than a lazy weekend brunch. In advance of pancake day I wanted to share my all time favourite pancake recipes with you, these have been tried and tested and a great result is guaranteed.
1. Gilt free, Gluten free: Banana, coconut & blueberry pancakes
This is a genius flour-less pancake recipe from Green Kitchen Stories using only a few simple and everyday ingredients which include ripe banana, eggs, shredded coconuts, blueberries & cinnamon.
The perfect recipe for using up all those ripe banana’s in the fruit bowl!
2. The fruity one: Apple & greek yogurt pancakes
I have been making Apple pancakes since I started to ween the kids, they made a brilliant finger food whilst also making a lovely treat for some tried Mum’s & Dad’s! I have recently discovered this particular recipe and she is a keeper!
3. Savoury fritters: Sweetcorn fritters
Matt & I discovered Sweetcorn fritters years ago when travelling in Australia. You can’t fail with these fritters, they work perfectly with fresh corn sliced off a cob or canned sweetcorn. I like to serve them with a chunky avocado salsa or alternatively serve with sliced avocado and crispy bacon.
4. The classy ones: Smoked salmon & dill drop scones with lemon crème fraiche
We have made these countless times over the years, they make a wonder brunch when friends come over. Evie loves smoked salmon so I often make extra and freeze a few as they make a great quick lunch. As an alternative you could make mini versions and serve them as canapés for a party.
5. We can’t forget the classic American pancake recipe:
I always opt for this Nigella recipe to make these beautifully think and spongy American pancakes. Served with lashings of maple syrup and either fresh fruit or crispy bacon for a salty finish. Heaven on a plate!!
The main problem is that we never make enough…
Now all I need to do is to decide which ones to make tomorrow, at this rate we will be having pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner…
