All you need for a flipping tasty Pancake Day, from indulgent toppings to sweet shortcuts
Need some Shrove Tuesday treats for the family, but don’t have time to make them from scratch? Discover our range of Pancake Day food in store now. Choose from crepe-style thin pancakes, a speedy mix, plus fluffy American-style pancakes, made with buttermilk for added richness. Our mini pancakes will be loved by kids, while our delicious range of sauces (including chocolate, caramel and our amazing lemon gin and tonic sauce!) and lemon juice are made for drizzling on top.
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. 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.
We’ve recreated our much-loved sweet treat, Percy Pig, in pancake form! To make them yourself, 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 three or four to the other to create a darker pink colour for the ears and nose. Fry as per the instructions, making one larger circle and three smaller half circles in the pan. Meanwhile, roast some grapes drizzled in maple syrup to use as the nostrils and to serve alongside. Build your Percy using whipped cream for the snout and two raisins for eyes, and serve with extra Percy sweets, roasted grapes and maple syrup.
