Food Porn Friday – Episode 14: Pancakes

Hey Guys, I’m BAAAAACK.

Now I know what you’re thinking. It’s been almost two weeks since pancake day – Hattie, you’ve well and truly missed the boat on this one. But this is one holiday that Food Porn Friday would be ashamed to miss out on celebrating, so here I am, brightening up your Lenten fasting, with my top pancake recipes.

Now I assume you all understand that the best way to do pancake day is one savoury, one sweet. For my savoury start, I have to have bacon. I also believe that every pancake is made better with melted butter, though I understand that this turns most people’s arteries… I did find this, made with hollandaise sauce, which is PRACTICALLY just butter:

Spinach, bacon and mushrooms is always a winning combination in the Best Brunch Ever household (pretty much one of our staple pasta recipes), so I can’t see how you can go wrong with wrapping it in a crepe and covering it in hollandaise sauce.

Though in the UK it tends to be just the filling we change, worldwide the pancake itself can look very different. I really liked the look of this next recipe: pumpkin, rosemary and cheddar pancakes, served topped with a fried egg – and you know how I feel about egg yolk.

The thing about pancakes is they combine sweet and savoury so well – even this baby comes topped with a drizzle of syrup.

Which leads us perfectly onto our next recipe – the chocolate and bacon pancake. I feel that this needs no further introduction…

Yes, you read correctly, that is “Nutella maple syrup”. Oh Internet, you are so crazy and wonderful.

But returning to pancake day classics, my perfect dessert pancake – banana and chocolate sauce. Here it is, done to perfection:

I’m sure Amy will take you into this one in more detail in her next Amy vs Fruit.

Thanks for reading guys, it’s great to be back! If you have any requests for next time, just leave them in the comments. See ya!
