Carolanne’s Kitchen Banana Bread Pancakes
Prepare yourselves for these, lads; you’re about to become hooked. Carolanne Rushe from Sligo blogs at Carolanne’s Kitchen (and also co-owns the city’s Sweet Beat Café) and these banana bread pancakes are an absolute revelation! Healthy to boot, these are made with oats, almond milk, cacao and banana… we might just spread ours with lashings of caramel-flavoured Biscoff ‘Speculoos’ spread too.
Siúcra‘s take on hotteok, sweet Korean-style pancakes filled with spices, brown sugar, chopped nuts and black sesame seeds. An unusual and interesting way to make pancakes if you’re looking for a challenge (or to impress a few colleagues!)
Pikalily’s Crêpes Suzette
Nial and Helen are the newlywed couple behind Pikalily, a food blog based in Northern Ireland. Fusing the French dessert classic, Crêpes Suzette, with an Irish twist, these are served with Jameson marmalade sauce – the ideal dessert dish if you haven’t managed to have a crêpe or two at breakfast, lunch or dinner time!
Peachy Palate’s Matcha Coconut Pancakes
Michelle Hunt from Peachy Palate‘s matcha green tea coconut pancakes look so healthy and delicious that you’re definitely allowed a couple of these green cakes at breakfast! Naturally sweetened, gluten-free and low in carb… you’d be crazy not to size up to this stack of fluffy flippers.
Donal Skehan’s Superfood Oat Pancakes
Donal Skehan‘s luxurious take on gluten-free pancakes from his new book, Fresh, are superfood-filled and fulfilling all the same. These oat cakes are served with sliced banana, blueberries and coconut yoghurt before being drizzled with local honey and topped with superfood bee pollen. We can hardly resist!
Gastrogays’ Ricotta Pancakes
London-based Irish food bloggers Gastrogays have a deadly recipe for lighter-than-light fluffy ricotta pancakes served with seasonal apple compote and thick Greek yoghurt. So good in fact, even Nigella Lawson gave them a shout-out saying how great they were!
