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.
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.
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!
