Shrove Tuesday, it’s one of our most favourite foodie days of the year and luckily, it’s fast approaching! A day where indulging in an unlimited number of delectable pancakes and a plentiful dose of sugar sweet toppings is totally acceptable. What’s not to love ❤…
Finding inspiration and making an executive decision on what type of pancakes to whisk up can be a challenging choice. Though unfortunately we don’t serve pancakes here at The Fizzy Tarte in Bowness-on-Windermere, we’ve gained some inspiration from our fruitful patisserie menu and shortlisted our five favourite pancake recipes that’ll guarantee great taste.
Do you like a chocolate overload and find yourself always opting for the most chocolatey dessert when you’re out for dinner? If the answer is YES then these will certainly suffice. If you want to make this a true chocolate feast, top your pancakes off with a few heaped tablespoons of Nutella, whipped cream and icing sugar. For an extra sweet taste trying adding sliced ripe banana.
