Top 5 pancake toppings

Shrove Tuesday is here and it’s time for pancake lovers to unite, but can we agree on what the best pancake toppings are? Here are my top 5!


First off there’s the absolute classic sugar and lemon. While it may not be everyone’s go-to, it's tangy and sweet flavour is unmistakable. However, it doesn’t do much for hiding the burnt bits, if your pancake making skills aren’t the best - like mine. Oops!


If you’re looking for a breakfast alternative, strawberry or raspberry jam is always a great choice. It isn’t the healthiest of early morning meals but this is the one time a year that it’s acceptable, right?


A more savoury but equally as naughty breakfast pancake topping is bacon followed by a drizzle of golden syrup for an American twist. This is probably the most filling of the lot, so don’t overdo it!


If meat isn’t your thing and you’re looking for a veggie option, why not smother your pancake in Biscoff spread and top with bananas? The combination of the two makes for a perfect sweet treat. 


Want to take it to the next level? Revs win gold for the best pancake stack around! Their blueberry, banana and Nutella pancakes are the perfect treat to share with a friend or enjoy all to yourself. 

I hope these options inspired you to get creative this evening!

Happy Pancake Day!
