9 Recipes To Try This Pancake Day

Pancake Day is upon us once more! It is one of my favourite days of the year. I love that it is a great excuse to not bother eating a real meal for dinner/tea, but an opportunity to stuff our faces sort of guilt free with yummy sweet and savoury pancakes. I collated a list of my favourite pancake recipes for you to try this Shrove Tuesday.





  1. Banana Pancakes

    I love these pancakes because you only need two ingredients and they are so easy to make! Check out Kristine’s recipe here where she talks about the importance of having the right cookware to make the perfect pancake.

  2. Sweet Potato Pancakes

    Similar to banana pancakes, this two ingredient recipe makes super healthy pancakes that are great for baby led weaning. What’s more, they taste pretty delicious. Check out the recipe here.

  3. Banana and Oat Pancakes

    This recipe uses the principle of the simple banana pancake recipe but adds a few more extra ingredients to bulk it up and add a few bits of extra nutrition. Super easy to make and super yummy. You can find the recipe here.

  4. Scotch Pancakes

    I love traditional scotch pancakes and these ones taste absolutely divine. I would eat these for breakfast every morning if I could. They’re such an easy way to get some extra fruit into your diet as well. The recipe is here.

  5. Protein Pancakes

    These gorgeous looking protein pancakes from Sarah at Run Jump Scrap taste amazing and are super duper healthy. It’s a win-win! See for yourself here.

  6. Fluffy Pancakes

    Fluffy pancakes are my absolute favourite and Kim from OddHogg has a beautiful recipe that has been handed down from her Mum. The great things about these pancakes is you can add whatever type of topping you want and Kim has made a great list. Go and check it out here.

  7. Baked Pancake

    This baked pancake recipe makes making pancakes so easy, you don’t even need to flip it! Last year I was heavily pregnant and extremely hormonal and threw the frying pan in a rage when I couldn’t flip the pancake. Really could have done with knowing about baked pancakes then! This recipe is BLW friendly, but feel free to add as much sugar as you want, Shrove Tuesday only comes around once a year after all.

  8. Traditional Crepes

    Have a look at Mummy Miller’s recipe to make traditional pancakes here. These go amazing with Nutella and I am a sucker for eating so many of these when I travel to France.

  9. Nutella Covered Pancakes

    Did you know that a pancake has to have baking powder in it, otherwise it is a crepe? No, nor me, until I read IAmCrabstix’s hilarious pancake recipe. WARNING. This recipe is neither BLW or SW friendly, but it will make you giggle.

What pancakes are you going to try this pancake day? Let me know if you try any of these pancake recipes out today and what you think.

    I really want pancakes now! I used to make the banana pancakes a lot for my boys when they started weaning. I make some now without sugar – flour, eggs, baking powder, milk, cinnamon and finely grated apple to sweeten.

      Sounds like the newspaper had nailed their recipe. I must admit, until I started weaning, I had no idea how many varieties of pancakes there were.
