Pancake Day

A day dedicated to pancakes is something we can all get behind!

This year Pancake Day will be celebrated on Tuesday, 1 March and we encourage tuckshops to get involved.

We’ve pulled together some easy recipes to get you started.

Banana Pancakes

Pancakes and bananas are a winning combination. Take a look at this simple recipe and why not add some colour with some fresh or frozen blueberries, strawberries or raspberries.


Apple and banana hotcakes

Check out this yummy recipe from our friends at Healthier.Happier. The added sweetness of the apples is sure to keep the kids coming back for more!


Vegetable pancakes

Not everyone is a sweet tooth! Why not mix it up and throw some savoury pancakes in the mix. These vegetable pancakes from the team at Taste are not only delicious, but packed full of nutrients too!


Short on time?

The great thing about pancakes is their versatility…and their likeness to a pikelet, an already firm favourite on many tuckshop menus.

Why not use Pancake Day to do a special deal for your pikelets. Get your P&C to post about it on Facebook or add it to your online ordering system and watch the orders flood in!

Easy swaps

Adapting your pancakes for food intolerances and allergies can be simple. Take a look at these gluten-free and vegan pancake options.
