For those of us out there who are trying to stick to our New Year’s resolutions, the healthy option is the way to go. Bananas are an instant energy booster and full of fibre, which promotes slower digestion, making you feel full for a longer period of time. For a pop of flavour why not try throwing on some Greek yogurt and some seasonal berries.
If you are feeling a bit more adventurous why not try adding mango, coconut, and lime for a more Caribbean twist?
Pancake Day wouldn’t be the same without a little sugar and lemon juice. Drawn from somewhere deep in our childhoods, this simple option is always a people pleaser.
However, if you want to take it one step further why not consider adding some Nutella or chocolate buttons, items like this are the perfect addition for those who have a sweet tooth or a craving for chocolate.
Why not give your pancakes a savoury twist? Instead of using chocolate or sugar to sweeten your treat why not get inventive? Instead of something simple like cheese and ham, try the BBC Good Food’s recipe for Eggs Benedict Pancakes, this is the ultimate breakfast food and we have no doubt that it will impress a fair few people.
The savoury option isn’t just restricted to toppings, you can change the recipe of the pancakes themselves to include selections like spinach and ricotta, cheese stuffing or you can even create potato pancakes for the ultimate savoury experience.
In more recent years we’ve been seeing the arrival of both sweet and savoury when it comes to our pancake platters. Most brunch menus these days will always provide a bacon and maple syrup option when it comes to ordering pancakes and many people prefer it to the traditional options of lemon and sugar.
Hailing from the USA, this topping option uses the saltiness of the bacon mixed with the sugary goodness of maple syrup to create the perfect balance.
Have we missed anything out or do you have your own special topping that we just have to try?
