If Pancake Day conjures up images of misplaced flips, golden syrup and burned batter, then it’s time to upgrade and host a ‘Glamcake Day’.
There’s no reason why this most humble of dishes can’t be elevated: with a few choice tweaks, some quality bubbles and a bit of presentation, you’ll soon be impressing friends with your sophisticated pancake soiree.
Here’s our guide to flipping Pancake Day on its head.
UPGRADE YOUR RECIPE
From organic blueberries, bacon and maple syrup to smashed avocado and chorizo: a pancake doesn’t need to be limited to lemon and sugar. You can also experiment with different flours such as spelt and buckwheat for a more wholesome, interesting texture. Stack ‘em high and garnish with fruit, seeds or fresh herbs.
PAIR WITH PROSECCO
Whether your Glamcake Day is a brunch or evening affair, pop open a Prosecco for that sophisticated touch. Prosecco is a great pairing for both savoury and sweet dishes, so is perfect for whatever you add to your pancakes. Our Freixenet Prosecco is presented in a striking cut-glass style bottle, to add that feeling of glam to your table setting.
Did you know?
Pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent, because they are a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting season of Lent. Although we wouldn’t recommend fasting, have fun with this tradition and ask your guests what they’d like to change or give up – you might get some juicy answers!
