Peanut Butter & Raspberry Pancakes

Another unusual pancake recipe we’ve come across are these Peanut Butter & Raspberry delights from She calls them ‘pillow pancakes’ and they look super fluffy. Her blog is completely plant-based so check it out!


Spinach & Strawberry Pancakes has these special spinach & strawberry pancakes with ‘hidden greens’. Unlike our Spinach & Halloumi Pancakes where the spinach is centre stage, her recipe gets the greens in without being obvious. Perfect for little ones who need more vegetables in their diet!

Sticky Toffee Pudding Pancakes

Yum, yum, yum and oh, so yum! Sticky Toffee Pudding Pancakes from Bliss!

International Pancake Recipes

Scottish Lemon & Raisin

I truly believe this flavour combination could only come from Scotland. But anything with lemon curd is A+ in my book so try these Lemon & Raisin Pancakes for a sweet & sour twist on pancakes.

Nigerian Sweet Potato (Vegan) Pancakes

Tomi is a treasure! She hails from Nigeria and London is so lucky to have her. Her blog, plus her books and events bring a whole new world of flavours to the UK. These sweet potato pancakes are top quality! Sweet Potato Vegan Pancakes

Polish Apple Pancakes’s Polish Apple Pancakes are divine. The apples are dipped in pancake batter and fried. Very different to our Spiced Apple Pancakes so give them both a try!

Russian Honey Pancakes

Chez Maximka says “Serve them hot with honey or any syrup you like (maple, agave, carob, golden) or dust with a bit of icing sugar.” Yes, ma’am!

Dutch Pancakes

It is not possible to summarise international pancakes without talking about Pannenkoeken, traditional Dutch Pancakes. We highlight the Little Amsterdam Cafe in Oxfordshire in our post about where to eat out for Pancake Day because of their speciality pannenkoeken. To make pannenkoeken at home, we adore this recipe from Steven at vanDotschSpices. They sell an amazing speculass spice blend. This warming Dutch spice combination is so irresistible*. Top with VanDotsch speculaas ice cream.
