Make your family smile this Pancake Day, 5 March, with a treat inspired by their favourite Percy Pig sweets

There’s only one thing better than our much-loved Percy Pig sweets, and that’s Percy Pigs in pancake form! These are super easy to make: simply divide a tub of our fresh pancake batter (available in store) into two bowls, then add a couple of drops of pink food colouring to one to use for the face, and four or five drops to the other for the ears and nose. Fry as per the instructions, making one larger circle and three smaller half-circles. Meanwhile, roast some red grapes with a drizzle of maple syrup at 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4 for 15 minutes. Spoon some whipped cream on top of the larger pancake and place one of the smaller pancakes on top, then arrange the other two small pancakes for the ears. Use the roasted grapes as nostrils, and two raisins for eyes. Serve with Percy Pig sweets and drizzle with maple syrup: flipping delicious.
