Tuesday 5th March is Pancake Day, otherwise known as Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday or maybe you prefer Mardi Gras.
Either way, tradition has it as the last day of total indulgence before Easter. Nonetheless, whether you’re giving up something for Lent or not, few people know how to make a good pancake better than hotel spa chefs. So it’s time to batter those eggs and line up all your foodie favourites. Here’s how to make the best pancakes in the UK from some of the best spa hotels…
• Smooth batter
• Good quality eggs
• A pinch of sea salt
• Baking powder
Take a traditional pancake recipe and give it a decadent twist from the Head Pastry Chef at award-winning hotel and spa, The Vineyard. With a drop of rum and a healthy dose of orange zest, complete with a melted chocolate and sliced banana filling.
A powerful punch of zesty decadence, if you’re going to give up indulgence until Easter then this is definitely the way to go out with a bang. Straight from the Michelin Star chefs, Chris and Jeff Galvin at The Caledonian, this is a truly grown up way to tuck into pancakes.
Few things could be more joyful than pancakes after a bracing surf in one of the UK’s prime surf spots. Work up an appetite at the beach below Fistral Beach Hotel and return for some seriously inspired topping ideas to experiment with. Try avocado, treacle, chocolate or smoked streaky bacon… although maybe not all together.
