Pancake Day: The ultimate recipes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday

From simple stacks to indulgent mounds, here are the best pancake recipes to cook up this Shrove Tuesday.

Pancake Day: The ultimate recipes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday
Thick or thin? Stacked or strewn? Sweet or savoury? Maple syrup or chocolate spread? We're not here to settle any debates – after all, there's really no wrong way to serve up something as delicious as pancakes. But no matter how you like yours, these recipes will inspire you to whip up something moreish. With Shrove Tuesday being marked on 24th February, 2020, it's the perfect excuse to eat all the pancakes you can muster, at any time of day!

1. Coconut Salted Caramel Pancakes

If you're team crêpe, then try these sweet showstoppers. The recipe, created by Gizzy Erskine, is made with milk, but you can easily swap that out with coconut milk for a dairy-free, vegan version. This recipe makes tons of the caramel sauce, but it lasts for yonks in the fridge and extremely versatile, so after Pancake Day, you can use it on everything, from heating it up and pouring it over ice cream, to drizzling it over porridge – or just eating it with a spoon, we won't judge!

2. Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes

If you prefer pancakes that will send you into a sugar coma, then these are your best bet. Made with Pip & Nut's peanut butter cups, they scream indulgence and will certainly satisfy any sweet cravings you have. Maybe serve yours with a bit of sliced banana so you're at least getting in some fruit at the same time!

3. Chocolate Coconut Banana Pancakes

We're partial to a bit of banana on our pancakes at Veggie HQ, so combining them with two of our other favourite ingredients makes this recipe a real winner! Plus, this stack is low-calorie, high-protein, gluten-free and wheat-free – what’s not to love?

5. Day-after Porridge Pancakes

Fibre-rich oats make for a healthier alternative on Pancake Day. This recipe utilises leftover porridge to save it from going to waste, but you can also simply mix porridge oats with milk. Here, the pancakes are topped with grilled figs, but you can replace them with your favourite seasonal fruit, too!

6. White Spelt Pancakes

Sometimes, it's the simple ones that are the best. If you like your pancakes with no frills or fuss, then try these spelt pancakes from Doves Farm. The plain yet delicious recipe makes for the ideal vessel to add your favourite toppings like fresh or stewed fruit, maple syrup, chocolate hazelnut spread or even yoghurt.

8. Dairy-free and Gluten-Free Pancakes

Everyone deserves to enjoy pancakes, and this recipe caters to those with gluten and dairy allergies. Don't be fooled though: that doesn't make them any less tasty! Ideal for children, too, you can top them with your favourite seasonal fruits and generous drizzles of syrup.

9. Blueberry, Coconut and Almond Butter Pancakes

This vegan pancake recipe may look super-indulgent, but it's packed with plant-based goodness to power you through the morning. If you do eat dairy and want to mix the recipe up a bit, you could fry the pancakes in butter and top them with a thick Greek yoghurt instead. Remember to give your nut butter a good stir before using it, as the oils can naturally separate.
