7 ‘flipping tasty’ sweet and savoury pancake ideas

Pancake Day is here, and that means it's time to decide which kind of pancake (American, crêpe, galettes...) and which kind of topping (classic, peanut butter jelly, cheese...) you're going to plump for. 

So to make sure you don't get in a flap about flipping, here are some of our favourite pancake recipes to suit any taste.

Lemon and poppy seed pancakes 

You'll have no trouble getting out of bed if you know these easy-to-make lemon and poppy seed pancakes are waiting for you. You're likely to have most of the ingredients, like the plain flour, lemon and sugar, in your store cupboard already. But if you wanted to take these pancakes to another level, try spreading a dollop of lemon curd into the middle for a zingy, zesty finish.

Sweet potato pancakes with dhal

Ever thought of using sweet potatoes in your pancakes? They give an injection of incredible orange colour and a hint of sweetness. Once you've mixed in flour, eggs and milk, cook the batter for 1-2 minutes on either side before topping with hearty spiced dhal, and fresh minty raita. A delicious pancake main course for Shrove Tuesday!

Funfetti Pancakes

Colourful, crunchy and so easy to make, the kids will love these fluffy funfetti pancakes. We've used a traditional pancake recipe and jazzed them up with some sprinkles. Top with squirty cream and strawberries for a totally indulgent pancake dessert.

Spinach and ricotta pancake cannelloni

Looking for an easy savoury pancake recipe for dinner? Swap your pasta for pancakes and give this classic Italian dish a deliciously satisfying twist. Once you've made your pancakes, stuff them with creamy ricotta and spinach and finish off with a saucy tomato topping and melted cheese. Yum!

peanut butter pancakes

Peanut butter lovers - you need to get a load of these. We've sneaked a dollop of peanut butter into the batter, but you could leave that out and simply add a spoonful on top when serving. Eat them for breakfast with a handful of berries and a spoonful of crème fraîche or some streaks of crispy bacon. *Drools.

Chocolate and raspberry pancakes

The addition of pomegranate seeds, honey and mint on top of our chocolate and raspberry pancakes give this dish an air of sophistication. Make this for your partner on Tuesday, or save for Valentine's Day for an extra special breakfast.

Gluten-free Dutch baby pancakes

Coeliacs don't have to miss out this Pancake Day with our fruity Dutch baby pancakes with summer berries. Impress your friends with this fun and fluffy option, which is super easy to make and great for sharing. You can switch up the fruit with your favourites too!
