6 great pancake fillings – sweet and savoury
We know, if you’re anything like us, you’ll be piling the pancakes high this evening, but which side of the filling fence do you stand?
Maybe you indulge your sweet tooth with the traditional sugar and lemon or perhaps you prefer to go against the grain, preferring the often overlooked savoury favourites like classic cheese and ham?
However you like your pancakes, our top 6 ideas will inspire some creativity in the kitchen this year…
1. Chocolate, peanut butter & banana
Perfect for thin base pancakes, this super sweet filling will pack out your pancakes. Cost effective and great for sharing.
2. Tomato & mushroom pancake
This recipe is a super satisfying brunch or starter. Or, if you prefer, top with sliced banana, pecans and ice cream.
3. Breakfast bacon and egg
Prefer a more hefty pancake? Add mashed potato into the mix for chunky pancakes – you’ll still get all the fun of the traditional prep but they’ll work nicely with a breakfast topping of bacon and egg.
When it comes to adding anything chocolate to a pancake, then nothing comes better than a generous dollop of Nutella.
Sometimes you just want to keep it healthy, and for that, nothing works better that simple blueberries with a bit of icing sugar. Even though we’re being rather liberal with the word healthy, it’s a good way to trick yourself.
6. Maple Syrup
The big daddy of pancake toppings, there can be no greater addition to a pancake than maple syrup. It is sweet, thick and gooey, and irresistible. Not only does it work perfectly with every single pancake in the world, but it also compliments all other pancake toppings.
Maple syrup and strawberries? Why not?
Maple syrup and bacon? Oh Canada.
Maple syrup and ice cream? Yes, please!
