In time for Shrove Tuesday I have found some great Pancake Day Recipes, for everyone to enjoy. From savoury, to sweet fillings. Plus a couple of ideas for gluten free alternatives, which you must give a try.
Whether you eat pancakes once a year, or throughout, these Pancake Day Recipes are sure to get your mouth watering.
The thought of having loads of pancakes in one night, isn’t for everyone.
Making a small snack, or even starter before your main meal is a great alternative, whilst treating yourself on Shrove Tuesday.
I’m a sweet pancake eater at heart. But over the years I have started to love a savoury pancake (or two).
Personally, I think a creamy filling is best for these style of pancakes. Creating a Cannelloni style recipe. It’s only one day a year, why not spoil yourself.
You can create fillings with meat, including chicken, and pancetta, (see the pancake Day Recipes below).
Or try pescatarian or vegetarian alternatives, with the ingredients of your choice.
As mentioned before I absolutely love a sweet pancake. On Pancake Day I tend to try a few fillings, not just sticking to one.
My favourite and most naughty of pancake fillings, is using Dairy Milk Caramel pieces. Once the pancake is ready, keeping it in the pan I heat up a few chocolate pieces on the hob (on top on the pancake) to melt. Roll up the pancake and then enjoy the chocolate gooey-ness!
It really is a must try.
If this sounds too indulging, filling pancakes with fruits and honey, or the very traditional lemon and sugar, are equally as delicious.
Gluten Free Alternatives
Being Gluten intolerant for the past 2 years, I am always looking for alternatives to Gluten based recipes.
Obviously with the recipes featured, you can easily make the pancakes gluten free, by using the right flour.
However, if you’re after something completely different, have a look at these recipes I’ve found.
They look absolutely delicious.
I hope you have a great time making pancakes. It’s a great way for all the family to get involved, and good fun.
