The just-for-grown-ups gin and tonic pancakes

If you love gin and tonic, try it in pancake form with our tasty recipe idea.

Create a stack with our American-style pancakes, layered up with a dollop of our pink gin cream – extra-thick British cream with a hint of raspberry gin – and a handful of fresh M&S Select Farms strawberries and blueberries.

Finish with a drizzle of our lemon, gin and tonic dessert sauce, made with zesty lemons and 4% gin.

Tasty topping ideas

Available in store, our fluffy buttermilk pancakes are made for stacking high with generous toppings. Try these three ideas.

Cherry and lemon
Make a quick cherry compote by simmering cherries with a little sugar, then serve with mascarpone and our lemon and gin and tonic sauce. This is truly delicious with our classic buttermilk pancakes.

Blueberry and pecan
Top our blueberry buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup, fresh blueberries and toasted pecan nuts.

Chocolate and banana
Caramelise a sliced banana in a pan with a little melted butter and a spoonful of sugar. Use to top our chocolate chip buttermilk pancakes, and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
