Win Abra-ca-Debora Hamper (Closed)

I have a confession. Even though we both love pancakes, we miss pancake day about as often as we manage to celebrate it. By “celebrate it” I mean make and eat pancakes on the day itself. I am not sure why – we nearly always have eggs in the house, and flour and salt, of course; we have a cupboard full of potential fillings and toppings from ham and cheese to honey and jams and chocolate spreads to peanut butter and bananas and condensed milk. And actually, we both adore the delicious simplicity of a sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. And pancakes are so easy to make, whether you go for thick fluffy American ones, lacy thin French crêpes or Yorkshire pudding-like Dutch Babies.

But, there it is. Sometimes we just don’t get around to it.

Which is why I was happy to review Abra-ca-Debora’s ready-made Dutch pancakes a couple of years ago. I used them to make a rather magnificent (if I say so myself) speculoos and mascarpone pancake cake as an impressive but simple-to-make Christmas dessert. It’s the speculoos spices that make this particular pancake cake recipe so Christmassy, but of course, you could make something similar all year round, as the flavours are so delicious. Or why not switch out the speculoos layer for other fillings such as chocolate spread, coffee cream, jam or lemon curd?

    I love sugar and lemon, but cinnamon sugar has become a big favourite in our house.
    I have eggs to use up. Hmm…

  2. Andrea Goodheart

    Have tried many other fancy ways and second best is stuffed with tuna mixed in with mushroom soup with crisps sprinkled on top and baked in the oven but best of all is the simplest of all. Eaten as soon as cooked with lemon juice and brown sugar.

  3. sallyann johnston

    I liked on facebook but my favourite topping is ice cream and chocolate sauce x

  4. Marko Vukovic

    I am a fan on Facebook as in Marko Vukovic.

  8. Molly Romanov

    I love making Breton galettes, using buckwheat flour, with savoury fillings such as fried egg, mushrooms, cheese and/or ham. If the galettes are made with a touch of sugar, they are also delicious with sweet fillings such as chocolate, hazelnut apple and/or icecream.
