Shrove Tuesday is nearly upon us which means one very important thing – pancakes are coming! It’s the perfect excuse to put your chef hat on and get flippin’. Thankfully, pancakes aren’t too difficult to make, even for the most inexperienced cooks out there. Try out some of these Pancake Day recipes on March 12.
If you’ve always felt that your pancakes were lacking a touch of chocolate, then this recipe is definitely for you. Your list of ingredients is relatively standard, requiring the usual combination of plain flour, milk, and eggs. However, with a little bit of cocoa – 15 grams to be precise – you can make your pancake into a flavor sensation. Just mix it in with your 100g of flour, 250ml of milk, and egg when making the batter.
Peanut butter pancakes
If chocolate isn’t what you’re after then how about peanut butter? For pancakes with more of a chewy texture, add 175g of this tasty spread to your batter. Combine it with two large eggs, 225g of plain flour, 325ml of milk, and one tablespoon of baking powder and caster sugar, for a breakfast you’ll never forget this pancake day.
Looking for a healthier option? Then maybe you want to try mango pancakes! After mixing 190g of plain flour, 2 tbsp of caster sugar, and 2 ½ tsp of baking powder together, make a hole in the center to pour in 300ml of buttermilk and two eggs. After that, add in a diced mango and cook as normal. You can add some lime zest to the final product for a tasty treat that’s healthier than it looks.
Fruit chocolate filling
It’s not always about the pancakes themselves, but rather what you put with them that makes them so delicious. For a filling that will make your mouth water, grab 170g of Greek yogurt, 142g of custard, 175g of raspberries, 225g of sliced strawberries, and 50g of dark chocolate. Mix the yogurt and custard in one bowl – with a few tablespoons of mint if you wish – and the fruit in another. Once you’ve melted all the chocolate, spoon some of each filling onto your pancakes and let your taste buds run wild.
It’s time to ramp up your pancake game with these Pancake Day recipes. Delicious!
