Nearly Pancake Day 2020!
Tuesday 25th February – Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day 2020 as it is often known is just around the corner. It falls late this year and we can’t wait! We’ve seen a few posts recently about people struggling with the date.
I must admit to loving pancakes, in fact, we actually had them for breakfast this morning, so it will be 2 Tuesdays in a row for us! The toppings can vary – everyone seems to have their favourite topping. Here are some tasty suggestions!
- Lemon juice and sugar – a classic, and popular option
- Fresh berries and whipped cream
- chocolate sauce and icecream (very tasty with chocolate pancakes instead of plain)
- Maple (or golden) syrup
- Nutella and banana
And that’s just the sweet ones! Why not make some savoury pancakes as a change? Bacon, cheese and asparagus is lovely, mushroom and spinach is a great combination, or smoked salmon with cream cheese.
Here at Spotlight Newport there is a bit of a battle going on as to which is the best. We have one firmly in the syrup camp, another in the lemon and sugar camp, and then my personal favourite, which is nutella and icecream.
What is your favourite topping for pancakes and why?
