Sharing is caring!

I don’t know about you, but every pancake day I wonder why I don’t have them more often – they’re perfect fuel and can be made in so many different ways – so I’m putting it all down for future reference.  I’ve also been looking at ways to make Pancake Day special this year, so alongside my traditional favourites – sugar and lemon and Nutella, why not try one of these mouth watering alternatives?
