Pancake Day is the perfect opportunity to perfect your pancake making skills. Getting the batter to do exactly what you want it to do is only half the battle. Making sure that your pancake toppings are up to scratch is increasingly important. The UK has always enjoyed Pancake Day, making big soft pancakes and slathering them in butter and sugar, jam or lemon juice.
Pancake Day treats look very different today, as tastes change. Pancakes are as popular as crepes or savoury galettes, with many Pancake Day meals now a two-course savoury and sweet affair. Toppings range from reliable cheese and ham to chilli and from maple syrup to hazelnut praline.
