One Valentine's Day I served up these gorgeous pancakes with a hot chocolate ganache and chocolate dipped strawberries. These are lush, decadent and eye catching and for when you want to impress someone (spoiler: they're not hard at all!).
Okay these turtle pancakes are seriously cute and if you've never gotten into pancake art then you'll be surprised at how easy it is to create a cute pattern using a batch of pancake mix and a squeezy bottle! I can see why people become addicted to making them for their kids!
Soufflé pancakes are one of the most deliciously light pancakes you will eat and have a bit of a cult following. Here you don't even have to queue up to try them. Try these soufflé pancakes made at home!
Not all pancakes are sweet. Take these Japanese okonomiyaki pancakes. Laden with delicious prawns, chicken and cabbage drizzled with sauce, mayonnaise and pickled ginger they're a delicious dinner pancake!
Pancake...soup? Yes! Pancake Soup (or "Frittaten Suppe") is an Austrian dish made from leftover pancakes from dessert the night before. Austrian pancakes are thinner than American pancakes; they're more like an ever so slightly thicker crepe. Serve them with a clear broth and they are absolutely delicious way to serve up leftovers!
So tell me Dear Reader, are you making pancakes this weekend or on pancake day?
