Fresh Ginger Pancakes with Caramel Lime Fruits offer a zesty twist to traditional recipes. With freshly grated ginger added to the batter and a filling of exotic fruits and crème fraîche - drizzled with a combination of Bonne Maman's wonderfully sweet Caramel Spread (available at Sainsbury's and Waitrose) and fruit juice; this colourful recipe is a fresh alternative for Shrove Tuesday.
A great one for kids, Bonne Maman's Banana Buttermilk Pancakes with Toffee Apple Sauce are easy to make and wonderfully tasty. A top tip for making even shaped pancakes, like the ones shown in this recipe, is to grease a large round metal biscuit cutter and spoon the batter into the ring, then pull the ring off when the pancake begins to cook. Alternatively, use a spring release ice-cream scoop to drop even amounts of mixture into the pan.
An elegant French classic - Pancake Millefeuilles are a great way use your favourite Bonne Maman Conserves. The word 'Millefeuilles' comes from the meaning "a thousand sheets or layers" and layering delicate crêpes, with delicious sweet spreads, fruits and cream is a wonderfully decadent way to stack your pancakes this Shrove Tuesday. Favourite Bonne Maman combinations and toppings include Strawberry and Wild Strawberry Conserve with honey and whipped cream; Caramel Spread, sultanas and greek yoghurt; Wild Blueberry Conserve, whipped cream and chocolate or Cherry Compôte, whipped cream and blueberries.
