Time to get ready for Pancake Day…

Why should you only eat traditional pancakes on Shrove Tuesday? Why not spice up Pancake Day with these stunning fluffy maple syrup flavoured beauties, perfect for the addition of any sweet topping. The maple syrup gives a mellow sweetness but also an additional rich flavour and gives the pancakes a beautiful golden colour. They also benefit from being refined sugar-free, so you can eat them with happy abandon! 

The addition of a little aquafaba in these pancakes gives a fantastic light, fluffy texture – a step closer to American style pancakes than traditional French Crepes, but utterly perfect for the yearly tradition of tossing pancakes on Shrove Tuesday!
