Are you sweet or savoury? 5 super tasty toppings to try this Pancake Day

Block ImageBlock Image

On the sweet side, dedicated pancake lovers go from traditional lemon juice and sugar drenched pancakes, all the way to lovers of delicious combinations of syrups, creams, chocolate and fruits.

For those who’d rather lavish their pancakes with savoury toppings, the wonderful world of chutneys, sauces, cheeses and dressing combinations are up for grabs.

Here we’ve served up a mouth-watering selection of pancake toppings to get you started. Just remember that whether your taste buds swing towards sweet or savoury, Pancake Day is definitely the day for a little self-indulgence.

1. Jam & clotted cream pancakes

The first pancake topping on our list is unashamedly reminiscent of a good old fashioned afternoon cream tea, traditionally enjoyed in the garden on a sunny day. 

Whatever you do, only use our delicious Original Strawberry Whole Fruit Jam for the most luxurious experience and be sure to spread it lovingly over your warm pancakes before loading them with our Classic Clotted Cream.

If it’s the cream tea experience you’re after, don’t forget to pop the kettle on!

2. Fudge, toffee sauce & whipped cream pancakes

The thought of this oh-so-naughty pancake pleaser is enough to get you licking your lips in anticipation.

For the topping you should use the best pourable toffee sauce you can find (or make your own), a carton of fresh whipping cream and 150g of our Original Recipe All Butter Artisan Fudge.

Once your pancakes are made, pour the toffee sauce over your warm pancakes and crumble a generous amount of fudge over the top. Then, simply whip the cream before spreading a lavish amount on the pancakes.

3. Cherry bakewell pancakes with Whitworths

We’ve teamed up with Whitworths for the Shrove Tuesday recipe you’ve all been looking for – Cherry Bakewell Pancakes!

To make your pancakes, begin by adding Whitworths Caster Sugar and ground almonds to your usual pancake batter mixture. Along with the beaten eggs, melted butter and milk, include a little almond extract.

Then, when your beautiful pancakes are stacked high and ready to serve, top with as much Cottage Delight Morello Cherry Jam and Whitworths Flaked Almonds as you like for the ultimate Pancake Day pleaser!

4. Luscious lemon curd pancakes

We must admit, a tangy dash of real lemon juice together with a fine sprinkling of caster sugar is hard to beat as a standard introduction to pancake day pleasure – until you try our luscious All Butter Lemon Curd version.

A twist on a classic, this is lemon on pancakes transformed into a seductive, smooth and creamy tasting experience that becomes almost addictive.

Gently warm your curd and drizzle over your hot pancakes and you’ll never look back!

5. Cheese & caramelised onion chutney pancakes

 This is the dark horse of pancake perfection! Hot pancakes, cheese – melted if you like – nestled under a blanket of our Caramelised Onion Chutney.

We take our time caramelising fresh onions for hours in oak aged balsamic vinegar to create a wonderfully rich, dark and irresistible pancake day experience to satisfy your savoury craving.

It’s time to get in the kitchen, apron on and start flipping those delicious pancakes!
