10 recipes for pancake lovers

A fluffy stack is coming to a table near you.

The consumption of pancakes on Shrove Tuesday are practical as well as liturgical. Historically, before the fasting days of Lent began, pancakes were a way to clear the larder of rich ingredients such as eggs, butter and sugar. Pancake Day is its modern, popularised incarnation – because if there’s any excuse to whip up a stack of pancakes, blini or crêpes with family and friends, we’ll take it.

Buttermilk pancakes are as traditional as you can get, while a side of glazed nectarines add a special touch; while others might prefer the elegance of thin, folded crêpes, especially if they’re topped with strawberries and hazelnut spread. Like them tiny and savoury? Our recipe for blini with smoked trout and herbed crème fraîche is a worthy brunch option.

Short on time? Don’t let that stop you from partaking in the pancake revelry. Marcel’s has fast-tracked the process with their range of ready-to-eat pancakes, leaving you to build your dream stack in no time at all.
