Homemade Pancake Recipes | 6 Ideas for Pancake Day 2022

Are you looking forward to Pancake Day?


Traditionally, Pancake Day - also known as Shrove Tuesday - signifies the last day before Lent begins, when many people choose to enter a period of abstinence from unhealthy foods. 


The idea of celebrating with pancakes came from people wanting to use up the last of their dairy products before Lent. 


Today, it’s a widely celebrated event; here are our 6 favourite homemade pancake recipes:


  1. Savoury Homemade Pancake Recipes: Ham, Spinach and Egg

These omelette-style pancakes are great for a Pancake Day brunch. Seasoned with black pepper and topped with parmesan, these ham, egg and spinach pancakes are packed full of protein and make a deliciously filling meal.


The sunny-side-up egg in the centre provides a perfect dip. Why not try adding mushrooms, onions and peppers for an extra vegetable boost?


  1. Savoury Pancakes: Brie and Bacon Pancakes 

These delicious American-style pancakes will taste great with their melted cheese centre and crispy bacon topping. 


You can eat these for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner - why not make a large batch and invite your friends over for a savoury pancake feast?


  1. Savoury Homemade Pancake Recipes: Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin or butternut squash is a deliciously sweet root vegetable, ideal for using in a savoury pancake batter. Once cooked, mash the pumpkin into the mixture before gently frying for a thick, tasty pancake. 


These healthy pumpkin pancakes are so quick and easy to make; perfect for a quick, delicious dinner or lunch.


  1. Breakfast Pancake Recipes: American Style Pancakes

These pancakes, made with a hint of cinnamon, are small and thick. They’re often served with bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup, or a dollop of chocolate spread. 


Our signature breakfast pancake dish here at Forest, we serve them with banana, blueberries, toasted almonds, vanilla and maple.


Why not pop in and enjoy a stack for you and your family?


  1. Homemade Pancake Recipes: Blueberry Cheesecake Pancakes 

Here at Forest, we think dessert pancakes are a delicious way to round off Pancake Day. These blueberry cheesecake pancakes offer a unique twist on classic homemade pancake recipes and are certain to go down well at the dinner table. 


Using cream cheese, blueberries, biscuits and syrup, these delightfully sweet pancakes are a delicious way to celebrate Shrove Tuesday, before heading into Lent.


  1. Delicious Banoffee Pancakes 

The last of our homemade pancake recipes are these delicious banoffee flavoured pancakes, oozing with toffee sauce and loaded with chunks of banana.
