We have golden syrup, lemon or lime juice and desiccated coconut.

I love pancakes and see pancakes as fast and wholesome for those like me who are gluten intolerant.

My favourite topping is freshly squeezed lemon juice with a little sugar or maple syrup but I do like pancakes with fruit and have savoury ones sometimes. πŸ‹

Don't eat them I'm afraid. It seems like a lot of waste when for just one person.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Becksagogo

Hey this sounds a shame to me as we are worth making the effort for. As how long does it take to make a batter... less than a minute.

I bake my own gluten free bread so see pancakes as quick and easy alternatives.

An option could be to prepare double amount of batter and keep it in the fridge for a couple of days. Oh, don’t give up!

You can scale the recipe up or down.

I've also cooked a lasagne that used pancakes instead of lasagne sheets (you can barely tell the difference), so if you do have any leftover pancakes, you could use them to make a savoury dish for dinner the following day :)

That’s a brilliant idea, to use it in a lasagne.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Elisabeth3

I agree it is a brilliant idea Elisabeth. πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

Pancakes freeze really well - I always keep a few in the freezer - layered with greaseproof paper. I love pancakes with lime juice and maple syrup. Much too yummy to only have once a year!

Sugar and vinegar, I know it’s weird but always had it from being a kid, not sure if it’s a yorkshire thing?!

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Vonb

Wow I've never heard of that but why not as it sounds like sweet and sour pancakes. πŸ‘

Lemon and sugar love them.

I ticked other because I can't make them, never found a good egg substitute for pancakes, any suggestion anybody??

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to INK45

Hi there INK45 you could try gram flour as thats often used as a plant based egg alternative or there's Orgran egg replacer made with plant cellulose. orgran.com/products/no-egg-...

Thanks Jerry, I had tried flax seeds without much success, I'll experiment with these new alternatives

I mix 1 tablespoon of chia with 3 tablespoons of water as a replacement for an egg. I don't mind seeing the whole chia seeds in my pancakes, but if serving to someone who does mind, I grind them first in a mini blender.

Thanks to you to HS7, really appreciated

Mine definitely lemon juice and a little sugar, from my childhood. My boys would have chocolate spread and ice cream. Happy Shrove Tuesday for tomorrow ☺️

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to mattymoo33

Me too πŸ‹πŸ‘ I hope that you enjoy pancake day tomorrow.

I like savoury pancakes- filling with mixture of cooked tomato, onion, ham, leek and covered in a cheese sauce.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Moreorless

Hey your savoury pancakes sound divine...πŸ‘

Elisabeth3
Elisabeth3TidyClub in reply to Moreorless

Sounds lush and rich.

I don't eat pankakes or anything wheat based.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Eryl

I’m a coeliac so can’t tolerate wheat Eryl and I make pancakes with alternatives like ground quinoa.

Eryl
Eryl in reply to Jerry

I don't eat wheat beccause it causes an insulin spike which causes health problems just like the sugar most people put on their pankakes. I thought that this group was about healthy eating?

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Eryl

The thing is Eryl there is a lot of difference between healthy whole grains and simple sugar. Complex carbs are packed wit nutrition and are slower to release than simple sugars which have NO nutritional value.

Not all of us need an unbalanced diet to compensate as we have put our bodies in danger because we’ve lost control of our weight.

We support a healthy diet for us and our needs and the majority of us except each other’s needs and respect each other’s dietary needs.

It depends, varies from person to person. Rice and potatoes spike my blood sugar but wholewheat doesn’t, possibly because I always have it with a fat source. I don’t put sugar on pancakes.

Lemon juice and strawberry jam. A leftover from childhood .

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Nimrod2

Nice πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

Homemade jam. Walnuts. Poppy seed. Sweetened cottage cheese.How do you eat pancakes with lemon juice. That’s the most popular choice. I seem to be missing it.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Elisabeth3

Hi Elisabeth3 your pancakes sound lovely as I love home made jam which I’d have with cream cheese.

Pancakes with lemon juice are plain unsweetened pancakes folded up with a sprinkling of sugar then fresh lemon juice on top and it’s lovely.

All my childhood memories of pancakes are of pancakes served like this. 😊

Elisabeth3
Elisabeth3TidyClub in reply to Jerry

Thank you. I never imagined pancakes like that.

I think pancakes with lemon juice and sugar is a British thing. I grew up in the USA where maple syrup and butter were standard.

Elisabeth3
Elisabeth3TidyClub in reply to HealthSeeker7

I always learn something here.I have not eaten maple syrup, either. πŸ€”πŸ˜‰

Also, very fond of savoury fillings such as chicken a la creme or poached egg, spinach and feta cheese!

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to JackLina

Hey I like the sound of your pancakes especially feta. 😊

Elisabeth3
Elisabeth3TidyClub in reply to JackLina

Gorgeous. If you fold spinach (from the blender) to the dough, it looks really healthy from the green colour.

Golden Syrup

Good choice.πŸ‘

Lemon juice and sugar

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to HardleyHare

Me too HardleyHare 🌈😊

Lemon and sugar or chocolate spread and banana

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Choccy

I love lemon and bananas are my favourite fruit with pancakes. πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

Lemon juice and sugar or Canderal granules.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to cc120

Classic pancake my favourite too. 😊

I don’t like pancakes .

Cooper27

We always had lemon juice and sugar when I was growing up, so that's my plan. These days it's less sugar, more lemon juice than when I was a kid!

I'll also have a few with just raspberries and cream :)

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Cooper27

You can't beat lemon juice and sugar and I use much less sugar than when I was a child. Also raspberries nows that another great choice. πŸ‘

Homemade fruit preserves. Next fave is just plain.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Llwooda

Perfect 😊

Organic maple syrup and butter. Not healthy, but a once a year taste treat.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to HealthSeeker7

A classic American pancake so you enjoy it. πŸ‘

I enjoy my pancake with berries when they are in season. When the berries are not in season I have it with a banana on its own or sometimes for a little treat I add a little bit of maple syrup on top of the banana.I must remember to have it with yoghurt sometime though I bet it is lovely.

Great Survey.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Lotus-Blossom

Thank you Lotus-Blossom I'm also going to have to try pancakes with yoghurt, I agree that theyre great with berries or a banana. 😊

Peanut Butter!

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Agatesup

Interesting I bet that’s good. 😊

Lemon juice and runny honey

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to excel1234

Very nice runny honey on a pancake πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

Bramley apples and cinnamon

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to fedupoffeelingtired

Apple pancake sounds amazing as I love Bramley apples, so a great suggestion. πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

the most common thing I put on pancakes is real butter - and rarely anything else. But sometimes if there is real maple syrup around I'll dip my pancakes into that (don't like to drown them in syrup)

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to msmuffintop

I’ve never tried this and it’s popular in the US. 😊

Jerry sad true i dont like American pancakes πŸ˜• . But i love Moroccan pancakes 😁

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Hb2003

Hey Hiba you like semolina flour I’ve noticed, so you enjoy the pancakes that you like best. 😊

Full fat Greek yoghurt, and either berries, cherries or apple puree

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Fran182716

This sounds great to me Fran. πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

Must have sugar with the lemon

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to HUMBERVIEW47

Classic and my favourite. πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

Apple sauce

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Amynah

That’s a really nice idea πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

I would normally have no topping.

Jerry
JerryAdministrator in reply to Plastow48

Hey you can’t argue with that!

Sugar and lemon juice
