Flippin’ tasty!

It comes around every year like a birthday, Pancake Day aka Shrove Tuesday.

The perfect excuse to show off your flipping skills in the kitchen and do yourself proud with your selection of toppings. You can’t beat the traditional lemon and sugar but there are so many other options.

Most people actually confuse pancakes and crêpes. The main difference is that pancake batter has a raising agent in it, such as baking powder or baking soda, and the crêpe batter doesn’t.

Here is our round up of places you can get good pancakes/crêpes from if you can’t cook won’t cook!

Les Deux Amies

The two friends got their first shop at Boxpark, Croydon in 2016. A local firm favourite of ours. You can pre-order your pancakes starting at £24 for 5 people, 10 plain crêpes with 2 toppings. or you could just head down to Boxpark for a chinwag over some crêpes.

Breakfast club

With around 10 restaurants in London, this is probably your best bet for getting a table. Get any stack and a beer, wine, cocktail or soft drink for just £10. They also have gluten free options.

Below Boondocks

Hoxton’s Below Boondocks has a tempting offer – an all you can eat pancake feast from 9am-7pm. For just £12.50 you can choose from a selection of toppings, including their signature roasted strawberry and banana caramel nut plus a cocktail or mocktail of your choice. You’ll need to book a ticket in advance.

They have a build your own option too, so you can get super creative. Simply fill in the form and hand it to your waiter for the evening.

  1. I’m SO excited for pancake day – I love it. I usually have maple syrup and extra thick cream (filthy) but might venture into the world of Nutella this year.
