Pancake Tuesday – 3 Recipes

My mother always made pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. We loved her Scotch Pancakes, crépes which we filled with butter, sugar and lemon, and her Crépes Suzette that she would flambé at the table.

The following pancake recipes have been handed down to me by my mother and we love making them together to this day.

Crêpes are the classic and I will definitely be making these on Pancake Tuesday. They can be a bit tricky but after the first few you will get the hang of it.

You can see my recipe for Classic Pancakes – Crêpes here.

Crépes Suzette

Crêpes Suzette are decadent and delicious with a rich buttery, orange flavoured sauce with Grand Marnier or Cointreau which you can flambé at the table.

There are a multitude of recipes and fillings for pancakes now, but I like to stick with keeping it simple and just make the crépes and have mine with butter and lemon and no sugar, they don’t really need it.

Scotch Pancakes

Scotch Pancakes are delicious and very fast and easy to make. I like them with just a little butter and of course my boys love them with chocolate spread.

The Scotch Pancakes are also delicious with some mashed banana in the batter and a little bit of cinnamon or you can drop some fresh blueberries on top while cooking.

Cakes safely in the oven, we took a little break over a cuppa to sample some of Mary Ann’s freshly baked scones and homemade damson jam, I genuinely don’t think I’ve ever tasted scones like it in my life, they literally melted in your mouth. So good in fact many of my fellow class attendees asked for her recipe which she was happy to share.
