Golden syrup or maple syrup

I don’t flip mine because I have to make then gluten and dairy free so they’re more fragile than a standard pancake. That said, we made them the other week and my bf was flipping them so maybe I’ll give it a go

Jam works pretty great too, and considering Americaning it up with some PB as well.

Also I go for a whole meal of pancakes so you have savoury to start then sweet to finish - ideal!

So much wrong these polls!

Sweet or savoury? Why not both: two savoury followed by one sweet.

Sweet option? Stewed apple and raisin in rum, with a light dusting of caster sugar

Type of pancake? Dutch

Tossing or turning? Use a big pot lid

How did I forget that classic combo! Schoolboy error.

I’ll probably do some US styles ones with maple syrup and banana for brekkie tomorrow (planning on wfh so plenty of time). Maybe even get some bacon for a treat

Prankcake day, they call it. An amalgamation of prank, pre and pancake

there used to be a dutch pancake place on Ealing Broadway - went there for pancake day once, so disappointing. Why so dry dutch pancake?

There was one on the King’s Road as well. Absolute shite as you would expect*!

*(I quite liked it as a child)
