PANCAKE DAY is here but we are bored of all the traditional toppings so check out our top alternative toppings for a feast on Shrove Tuesday.
Peanut Butter Syrup
We believe Peanut Butter tastes great on everything and it’s even better on a pancake! Grab 1/2 cup of honey and 1/4 cup of creamy peanut putter, combine them, microwave for 30 seconds and ta-da a delicious pancake topping that you’ll soon be using for everything else!
Vanilla Bourbon Caramel Sauce
After the kids have gone to bed, try this adults-only pancake topping. Combine 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup of water and let simmer until the mixture turns amber. Add cream until sauce is smooth then stir in bourbon until fully incorporated. Let it cool, and drizzle all over your misses’ pancakes.
Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Syrup
It’s still freezing cold outside, so this delicious topping is a guaranteed winter warmer. Combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of packed light brown sugar and bring to a gentle boil until the sugar is dissolved. Finish off by stirring in ½ teaspoon of cinnamon and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Bacon & Maple Syrup
Get whisked off to a diner on Route 66 with this yankee-doodle-dandy favourite. Simply grab maple-cured back bacon (Kitsons has bacon to die for!) for a true authentic taste, griddle until crisp and top with plenty of maple syrup and you’ll soon be saluting the stars and stripes.
Goats Cheese & Spinach
If you prefer savoury to sweet then try a delicious mix of creamy low fat goat’s cheese and tender baby spinach. Simply mix the goats cheese and spinach, add a dollop while frying your pancake then fold in half and heat for 2 minutes to melt the cheese.
