Pancake day is just around the corner, on the 28th of February to be exact. Pancakes are simple and quick to make, but toppings are the way in which you can really excite the taste buds.
American-style pancakes can be made by adding baking soda to the mixture which creates fluffier and even more irresistible pancakes. Or make some waffles. Or just whip up the classic pancake in the pan with an attempted flip.
Maple Syrup and Strawberries

This simple and delicious combo is brilliant. It satisfies the sweet taste buds as well as making you feel as if you’re getting one of your 5-a-day too. You can also add chocolate, or whipped cream. The world is your oyster on Pancake Day!
Some meat on your pancakes is never a wrong move, it is easy and quick. Throwing on a few rashers of bacon on your pancakes will make all problems in life come together. And to top off this magnificent masterpiece, pour on some maple syrup.
Honey and Banana
Pouring on some honey and cutting in some banana is a simple, and healthier, start to the day. It adds another different flavour to the usual pancake mix, you can always take out the banana and replace it with blueberries or any other fruit.
If you’re having pancakes so you might as well go hard or go home, and just scoop on the vanilla ice cream or chocolate. And pour on the Nutella, or any other suitable chocolate sauce alternative.
