Edgy Pancake Day Recipes to Spice Up Another Night In Lockdown
In the spirit of making the every day feel that bit more magic, here’s a bunch of edgy recipes to make you question every former Shrove Tuesday snack you’ve ever shared with your mouth.
It’s 2021 guys, we’re stepping our pancakes up. Whilst there is absolutely no shame in trotting off down to Tesco to pick up the sacred bottle of batter because just adding water is all our bandwidth can handle right now, going all out for Shrove Tuesday seems as good a tonic as any to soften the lockdown slog.
So, in the spirit of making the every day feel that bit more magic, here’s a bunch of edgy recipes to make you question every former Shrove Tuesday snack you’ve ever shared with your mouth. There is a whole life after lemon and sugar, so let’s start living it.
Chocolate Praline Pancake Cake
Cake on cake? It’s a vibe. This fondant masterpiece layered with praline chocolate sauce and a stack of classic crepe pancakes looks like it could kill us with one mouthful but what a way to go out.
Paleo pancakes never sound that sexy but this recipe flips the script on that foodie stereotype thanks to a little fluffy nut-free, grain-free, gluten-free guy called cassava flour, from the root of the cassava plant. If you’re missing the thick fluffy texture of traditional all-purpose flour, then happy Shrove Tuesday to you because you’re about to be reunited with its grain-free twin.
All hail the viral TikTok recipe that changed the way we eat pancakes forever. We’re always so quick to make everything supersize these days, and we’re here for it, but there’s something exceptionally satisfying about these pillowy hotcakes fit for a Borrower. Plus, it’s a great way to pass the time when you’re climbing the walls at home. Serve your mini mounds in a bowl, drizzle with maple syrup and a pat of butter and dig in. Some TikTokers have been known to douche the whole lot with milk but that really does take the cake.
Tuck into this peachy delight, served fresh from the skillet with homemade berry compote to boot. Have it for breakfast, elevenses, pudding or just scoop it into your satchel for your government-approved walk because nothing matters anymore. Go wild. Lockdown said to HELL with draconian meal times and we stan.
