Pancake Day for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

10 January 2024

Pancake Day is coming up on Tuesday 13th February so it’s time to plan how you’ll be celebrating. Will you be taking up our challenge of having pancakes with every meal? Here’s some inspiration to help you out.

Pancake Day 2024 is coming up and although it’s not a public holiday (we definitely think it should be) you can still celebrate throughout the whole day! But why do we celebrate at all? Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, is all about using up the rich ingredients in your kitchen such as egg, sugar and milk that are traditionally given up during the Christian fast, Lent. Lent begins the day after Pancake Day, on Ash Wednesday.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be observing Lent to enjoy pancakes though. Our challenge to you is to include pancakes in every meal! Impossible you say? Well actually pancakes are a very versatile food and can be paired with sweet or savoury (or both – maple bacon *drool*). There are also so many types of pancakes, from the classic crepe, fluffy American style, old school drop scones and even the wobbly Japanese style souffle pancake!

It's days like Pancake day that encourage us at Prestige to keep finding innovative ways to make cooking easier, because no one wants a sticking pancake or a soggy mess ruining their day. So if you want to accept our challenge, grab your pans and we’ve got some inspiration here to help you celebrate pancakes in every meal.

The key to a great pancake is your pan!

There's a reason they are called PANcakes! You want a frying pan with excellent non-stick, that's the right size for your pancake or crepe. We highly recommend our best-selling non-stick eco frying pan which is a great addition to any family kitchen and extremely versatile. 

Alternatively, if you cook a lot of pancakes, you may even want to invest in a special pancake frying pan - designed for cooking pancakes! If you want to start a Saturday morning pancakes tradition, this is the pan that will make cooking pancakes a true delight. 


Pancakes for Breakfast

Treat yourself to a fancy breakfast. You deserve it!

Fluffy American Style pancakes will make up for all the brunch dates you’ve missed, and although they won’t be cooked for you in your favourite brunch spot, making them yourself will make them all the sweeter.

Try our recipe for American Style Blueberry Pancakes for your first meal of the day and get the whole family starting the day off smiling. 

Alternatively, these Vegan Banana Pancakes are fluffy, light and completely dairy-free. A perfect breakfast food, and a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!


Pancakes for Lunch

With so many of us working from home, lunchtime possibilities have never been so plentiful! With access to our whole kitchens, rather than just the office microwave and kettle, we can expand our lunch options and bring a little joy to the working day.

Simply take our Classic Crepes recipe here and fill with your favourite savoury foods. The sky is the limit.

We love to fill with Ham (or prosciutto if we're feeling fancy) and Cheese, and then top it with a fried egg. However, there are so many other options.

You could try a posh version with Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese: Spread a layer of cream cheese on the crepe and top it with smoked salmon, fresh dill, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Yummy! 

Take it in another direction with Spinach and Feta: Sauté some spinach with garlic until wilted, then crumble feta cheese on top. Fill the crepe with the spinach and feta mixture. Nice and easy, and you can feel good about getting some tasty greens into your lunch.

Pancakes for Dinner

Pancake Day doesn't have to mean over-indulgence - and these savoury vegan pancakes with tomatoes and mushrooms are definitely a tasty way to celebrate whilst staying dairy-free.

Alternatively, try this Pancake Cannelloni! Filled with meatballs, gooey mozzarella and spinach, it's the perfect family-friendly supper for pancake day. 

For this recipe you’ll need both a great non-stick frying pan and a high-quality roasting tray.


Pancakes for Dessert

Dessert is your time to shine in the kitchen. You’ve spent the day honing your pancake skills, and now you're ready to impress with this final meal.

Try our indulgent Blueberry Sauce Crepes With Honey & Whipped Cream - these pancakes may look like an adult-only dish, but with the addition of a whipped cream smiley face we’re positive the kids will demolish these too.
