Perfect pancake toppings

Looking for tasty new toppings to perk up your Pancake Day? Then toss out the old and try the new with the flipping fantastic 44 Foods range…

Pancake Day – that annual celebration of the nation’s favourite flat food – is nearly upon us and it’s brought up two very crucial questions among the 44 Foods team: are you ready, and what are your favourite toppings?

In answer to the first question, even if you’re not ready there’s plenty of time to be thinking about and planning for the ‘big day’. And secondly, when it comes to pancake toppings, there are two main headings that people fall under…

Sweet traditionalists

Just a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of sugar, or a dollop of jam will keep these guys happy. But we all know there’s really no such thing as ‘just jam’…

Have you sampled our Thursday Cottage and Cottage Delight ranges of preserves yet? Packed with fruit and using traditional methods to lock in as much flavour as possible, these delectable spreads are a perfect partner for your pancakes. Try out our strawberry jamraspberry jam or clear honey for starters.

And while we’re on the subject of fruit, if you prefer the fresh kind as a terrific topping, we have the very best in blueberriesbananas and lemons – to name but a few – to choose from. They sit beautifully atop your pancake with a generous dollop of cream or ice cream.

Feeling adventurous? Then check out our other spreads and curds. For intense, tangy flavours, try Thursday Cottage’s Cherry Curd and Lemon Curd, or for pure indulgence, smooth a spoonful (or two!) of Gingerbread Flavour Salted Caramel onto a warm pancake. While we’re pushing calorie counting to one side, you could always opt to gently melt a little Cocoba chocolate and spoon it over your pancake pile.

Savoury specialists

If all that sounds too sweet for your batter mix, and you’re more impressed by a good old cheese and ham topping, why not look to these alternatives to flip your pancakes to the next level?

Our charcuterie range is filled with beautiful cured meats, so why not add in a few slices of tasty salami?

Or for a breakfast pancake that you can enjoy any time of the day, an eggs benedict version is sure to wake up your taste buds. Layer your pancakes with generous helpings of hamlettuce and hollandaise sauce and set off with a runny egg. Slivers of smoked salmon make an excellent alternative as well.

Whatever your topping of choice, enjoy your Pancake Day!
