Pancake Day is one of our favourite days of the year. We get to enjoy a WHOLE day dedicated to one of the tastiest treats ever!

But you don’t always have to enjoy it in the same way, there are loads of delicious pancake variations from around the globe to give a go. So allow us to take your taste buds on a quick taste journey through the best pancake recipes the web has to offer.

The Classic

Let’s begin with something traditional – copious amount of sugar and lemon drizzled over a thin and slightly crispy British pancake! Get the recipe.

The Americano


Everybody loves the fluffy deliciousness of stacked American style pancakes, with butter, maple syrup and a handful of chopped fruit! Get the recipe.

 The Dutch Baby

Perhaps a little closer in shape to what we’re used to from a Yorkshire pudding than a pancake, you have to applaud the Dutch for creating the perfect pancake vessel for plenty of filling! Get the recipe.

The Kaiserschmarrn

The Austrian twist on the desert, which is said to be the sweet spot between a pancake and a waffle. Get the recipe.

The Vegan

For those of you looking to celebrate Shrove Tuesday in a healthier more ethical way, the Vegan is the perfect alternative to traditional recipes and just as tasty. Get the recipe.
