Pancake Fillings: the Battle

We know how hard it can be to decide just what to put in those yummy pancakes on that last supper before lent, so fear not! We’ve taken it upon ourselves to relinquish you of the trouble and review all the very best fillings… All in the line of duty… No need to thank us… No, honestly – it was no trouble…

THE NUTELLA JOB

Is there anything better in the whole world than warm, gooey Nutella oozing out of a sweet crêpe? This sugar-overdose of a pancake might seem a bit simple (or even boring!) to the uninitiated, but try one – you’ll know from the first bite that sometimes the best things in life are Nutella.

THE CHERRY & ICE CREAM

Oh yes! We are talking Little Chef circa. 1989 style! If traditional lemon and sugar isn’t your thing, get your fruity fix with this! Warm cherries and cold ice cream… together… in a fresh pancake.  HEAVEN in a pancake!

THE TRADITIONAL

Please calm down with all your ‘whipped cream and bananas and strawberry sauce with sprinkles on top’ – some of us just aren’t budging from good ol’ sugar and lemon. Tart, sweet, and hopelessly more-ish… some things are considered ‘classic’ for a reason, amirite? #TeamLemonAndSugar

THE BANOFFEE

Banoffee pie in a pancake. Basically. ‘Nuff said! Banana and caramel inside, crushed biscuit and pecans on top, with a side of whipped cream. YU – MMY!

THE BREAKFAST

It’s everything you’ve ever dreamt of… it’s the almighty American breakfast pancake. If you’ve ever crossed the pond and dined in true USA style, you’re bound to have seen these at the top of every brunch menu. They’re thick, they’re fluffy and oh-so-delicious. Serve them with a few rashers of crispy bacon, a handful of fresh blueberries and a *hefty* drizzle of maple syrup. Whose mouth is watering?

THE CAKE

For the totally uneducated in the world of pancakes, the Pancake Cake is basically a stack of traditional pancakes, sandwiched with melted chocolate and cream on alternate layers, finished with a sprinkle of crushed nuts and berries of your choice. AKA pancake paradise! But why stop at that?? We say get experimenting with a filling of your choice!
