Sorted’s Top Pancakes for Pancake Day
Has one of the best days of the year crêped up on you? Not to worry, because we’ve already put together a selection of flippin’ delicious pancakes for you to choose from. Sweet or savoury, fruity or cheesy, we’ve got ‘em all! Take your pick and get whisking.
The Savoury Special: Spinach, Ham, Egg + Cheese
With caramelised onions, fried eggs and melted Emmental, these are quite possibly the king/ queen of savoury crêpes. Try ‘em for dinner if you don’t like your pancakes sweet, OR follow these with a sweet version for dessert… We won’t tell anyone if you don’t.

The Sweet ‘n’ Spicy One: Sweet Potato Pancakes
Sick and tired of regular old pancakes? Try switching up your batter with sweet potato, cinnamon and nutmeg! And then for the finishing touches: a rich and creamy syrup, white chocolate chips and pecans.

The Sophisticated One: Orange Blossom Crêpes
Jar of Nutella? Forget it. These orange blossom pancakes are perfect for turning up the class on your Pancake Day! A little bit citrussy, a little bit fragrant and a little bit boozy, they’re a great way to shake things up this year round.

The Brunch Staple: Bacon + Maple Syrup Roast Potato Pancakes
Everyone knows that bacon and maple syrup are a match made in pancake heaven. Keep things interesting by trying the combo on pancakes with a difference – add cooled and crushed potatoes to savoury American pancake batter along with a load of fresh parsley. You won’t look back.

The Classic with a Twist: Lemon + Ginger Pancake Stack
Here’s one for the traditionalists – because if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Make up a stack of thick American-style pancakes and drizzle with maple syrup with stem ginger and lemon before adding fresh berries. Iconic.

The Big One: Pulled Pork Pancakes
If you’re feeling indulgent, a towering stack of pulled pork American-style pancakes should hit the spot. Slow cook your meat for the tenderest pulled pork, then mix in the sweet and sticky BBQ sauce. We recommend serving ‘em with sour cream and chives too.
