One of the tastiest days of the year has arrived: Pancake Tuesday! With so many potential ways to have yours, we’re giving you lots of tasty ways to enjoy your pancakes today. For lots of delicious Inso, just keep on reading!
Did anyone else drool when they saw this photo, or was it just us? Imagine it: you’ve had a long, busy day at work and you’re craving something sweet. You can’t wait to get home, put your feet up and crack into a delicious plate of pancakes, oozing melted marshmallow and molten chocolate, with a welcome contrast of crunchy, salty cracker. Convinced? We thought so! Top tip: for these bad boys, the more marshmallow, the better – especially when you torch the top and it starts to caramelise! That’s a pancake win in our book.
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
Another indulgent option; but if not now, when? If you’re a cinnamon fan, you’re going to love these! These toppings work best with thicker, American-style pancakes to give it that true cinnamon roll feel. Add some sweet cinnamon to your pancake batter, prep some classic icing and pour over once ready. You could even take it one delicious step further and make your own cinnamon sugar as the cherry on top of your stack! We think we know which we’ll be having today… Just kidding, we’re clearly trying every topping we’ve mentioned in this post! Someone has to let the people know what the best topping is; we volunteer!
Classic Butter and Sugar Pancakes
Just like your mammy used to make, are we right? Everyone remembers the classic crepe, brown n’ toasted at the edge and shiny in the middle. Piping hot, slathered in butter with a memorable sugary sparkle. Bonus points if she rolled it up with a butter knife and chopped it into mini segments! The point is, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – butter and sugar will forever be a top tier pancake topping (try saying that five times fast!) in our eyes. We’re the pancake pundits and yes, we do in fact make the rules.
Other Potential Pancake Toppings
Don’t feel limited to these options though, think BIG! Pancake Tuesday only rolls around once a year, so we might as well make it count. We think we’ll have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner too! If you’re not sure on our options above, try some/all of the following! On the sweet side, we have maple syrup (with or without bacon!), peanut butter and banana, lemon and sugar, Nutella, berries of your choice, whipped cream, chocolate chips, nuts, ice-cream… The possibilities are endless!
If you’re more of a savoury pancake fan, we’ve got you covered there too! Bacon and avocado, kimchi and egg, chicken and spinach, cheese and ham, ricotta and spinach, haddock and prawn, duck… So many delicious options, we just can’t decide!
Wishing you all the loveliest Pancake Tuesday, and remember – today, there’s no such thing as one too many!
Until next time,
