Pancake Day Recipes

Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, Paczki Day. Whatever your preferred name, the Tuesday before Lent is the day where we break our New Year diets and have one massive sugar rush!

We love Pancake Day. Of course, we have a collection of our own recipes for fluffy, American pancakes. Buttermilk Pancakes (with or without blueberries) are a favourite and so are apple cinnamon spiced pancakes.

Our Las Vegas Carrot Pancakes are really something special. Feel free to decorate these with sparklers for a true Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras celebration.

Not everyone likes sweet, though, so we made amazing spinach and halloumi gluten-free savoury pancakes.

Pancake Syrup

Most importantly, you cannot forget the syrup.  It is like pairing wine and food. The right syrup to the right pancake.  We have homemade Blueberry Syrup which is cheap as chips by using frozen blueberries.  

We love the Waitrose No. 2 Amber Maple Syrup for real Canadian maple flavour. Aunt Jemima Pancake Syrup is available in the UK but real Canadian maple syrup is a significantly better and similar price. Our Las Vegas Carrot Cake Pancakes are delicious with our Cinnamon Syrup.

Everyday is Pancake Day

In America, every day can be Pancake Day. We even have a restaurant chain dedicated to the pancake – IHOP (International House of Pancakes) who are offering all you can eat pancakes for $4.99. No wonder Americans never eat at home! $4.99 per person and no washing up?  Where do I sign??
