Today is arguably the best day of the British calendar today: Shrove Tuesday, better known to many (at least those of us who think with our stomachs!) as Pancake Day. And what better way to celebrate than by whipping up a batch of perfect pancakes in a gorgeous modern kitchen?
We’ve pulled together some of our favourite pancake fillings so you can have a flipping marvellous pancake day!
Fabulous Fillings for your Pancakes
The question of whether to opt for sweet and savoury fillings in your pancakes is one that continues to divide the Great British public. Traditionalists opt for classics like lemon and sugar, while the more adventurous gastronomes plump for more exotic choices like pancetta and porcini mushrooms.
So, without choosing a side, here are a few of Kitchen Design Centre’s favourites:
Baked Somerset Brie with Roasted vegetables
This gorgeous savoury pancake filling can be left to cook in the oven while you get on with the important job of flipping.
While the recipe suggests serving up with focaccia or baguette, we love the idea of adding a few fresh herbs to your pancake batter then folding the hot pancakes over this gooey, melty mixture.
Banana and Nutella Crèpes
Tuck into a European favourite and trick the kids into having some fruit with these Banana and Nutella crèpes!
Using a quick heating induction hob and non-stick pan, make some extra thin pancakes that you can top with a generous smear of Nutella and row upon row of fresh chopped banana. Finish off with a dust of icing sugar, and you’re in for a treat.
German oven pancakes with apples
This recipe for traditional German oven pancakes is fabulous, fruity and wholesome. Started off in a skillet (a frying pan will do nicely!) and finished up in the oven, this succulent recipe is a real family-pleaser.
Top quality kitchen appliances will always help in events like these. Our quick-heating induction hobs and Neff ovens are perfect for a recipe like this, which requires a couple of hobs and a pre-heated oven.
More flipping marvelous favourites? Try pancetta and porcini mushrooms in a creamy sauce, roasted leeks and cheddar, or a quick summer berry coulis – easy to make on the hob with frozen berries and some honey.
