1. Strawberries and Whipped cream

If you want something that is slightly healthy but still allows you to indulge, strawberries and cream is a great idea. It allows those who don’t fancy an overpowering taste to have something subtly sweet.

2. Nutella

For any chocolate lover, Nutella is the go-to option, especially on warm pancakes. The Nutella melts perfectly to produce a smooth layer of liquid chocolate, making it a pancake day classic.

3. Bacon, Blueberries and Maple Syrup

Although this one may seem slightly weird, it is surprisingly tasty. Inspired by American style pancakes it gives the perfect balance between savoury and sweet, especially when on top of thick battered pancakes.

4. Ham, Egg and Cheese

Not everyone loves a sweet topping, but the wonderful thing with pancakes is they also taste great with a variety of savoury toppings. Ham, egg and cheese are one of these yummy choices. This mix of English breakfast style toppings is something you simply have to try.

5. Lemon Juice and Sugar

This is a British pancake classic. The sour bitterness of the lemon juice perfectly complemented by a sprinkling of sugar. It’s sure to make for a scrumptious pudding of pancakes.

6. Peaches and yoghurt

For those looking for a lighter option, this topping is a healthy spin on peaches and cream. Making for a sweet and creamy topping it’s simply delicious.

7. Smashed Crunchie Chunks and Whipped Cream

If you love the mix of honey combe and chocolate, then this pancake is for you. It is made simply by a taking a Cadbury’s Crunchie bar and smashing it into smaller chunks, then topping it off with a squirt of whipped cream.

8. Banana and Sugar

Sometimes simple is better and this is defiantly an example of that. Whilst you might think it sounds bland, it most definitely is not, the taste of the fresh Banana goes amazingly with a light dusting of sugar.
