Pancake day is here, so what’s your favourite topping?

Pancake Day is one of my favourite national holidays (no surprise there, it involves food…) I’m okay at making them, but the husband makes a mean pancake! The first one is always a bit iffy, but after that tester… mouth watering goodness!

So if you are struggling to pick your favourite toppings (yes plural!) then take a read of Darwin Escapes top 5 favourite pancake toppings!

maple syrup

So this is pretty Canadian I know, but I did live there for a while and they love the stuff! (they even have it on baked beans…) if you love sweet and sticky then this is the perfect topping for you!

american blueberry

American style pancakes are thicker than our more crepe style ones. They also have a more savoury or healthier stance on pancakes too. It seems their range of toppings includes a lot of fruit and sometimes even goats cheese! So why not push the boat and try these American pancakes, have a bit of sweet healthy with some delicious blueberries!

chocolate, peanut butter and banana

Everything is tasty with chocolate! Add peanut butter and banana and we are on to a winner! This is a tasty breakfast or lunch treat, and it has a banana so it isn’t all bad!

lemon and sugar

A great British tradition! This will forever remind me of sitting in my mums kitchen and watching her flip pancakes (she’s pretty good at this still!). I used to put the lemon and sugar on them, and almost burning my fingers because I couldn’t wait (shocker there!). It’s a very tasty topping!


And now to my brand new favourite topping! Ever since visiting Glastonbury and having this off a street vendor, I have been itching to have it again! And here comes pancake day, the perfect reason to indulge! Try it, trust me you’ll never look back! (unless you have a nut allergy, better to stick to lemon and sugar!)

There you have it, our top 5 favourite toppings for pancake day! Which topping are you going to try?
Happy Pancake Day!
