Go on, be a tosser. (9 easy pancake recipes, from vegan to gluten free, leftover porridge and everything in between.)

Apparently we don’t bother with pancakes on Pancake Day any more. That’s what a press release that landed in my email inbox this afternoon told me; that we, as country, aren’t all tossers. We don’t flip out. We no longer belong in the gang of whisk-pour-fry-flip-lemon-sugar-munchers. I simply don’t believe it, and I hope you will all prove me wrong. I am a one-person pancake frenzy. I enjoy them with my boy most weekends, and whenever there is a surfeit of either bananas, apples or mushy porridge to use up. If you’re stuck for inspiration for tomorrow, here’s my 9 favourite pancake recipes from the last few years, from vegan to porridge to gramcakes, and everything in between. And the regular kind, too. Enjoy!

  1. I’m definitely going to be a tosser tomorrow. In fact, I’ll be a double tosser since I’ll be making stuffed pancakes for dinner and traditional sweet ones for dessert.

  2. I’ve got one. My lovely Indian friend, who hailed from Mysore taught it me. It’s a flat savoury pancake made with rice flour mixed into a paste with finely chopped onions and brown mustard seed. It is absolutely delicious as a breakfast dish with chilli sauce. Hmmm think I shall go and do some shopping…..

  3. Hi Jack,
    I have got to try these pancake recipes!! Just a fetched a white chocolate tray bake out of the oven… Recipe from your first book A Girl Called Jack.

  4. My family and I love pancakes and make them every Sunday morning. Can’t wait for tomorrow for more pancakes too.

  5. I love pancakes, and always use the recipe from your 1st book, the vegan ones. Topped with fruit, or sugar and extra sugar if you are anything like my boys!

  6. I don’t believe it either. Who does not love pancakes?? If they say they don’t love pancakes I’ll show you a liar! Pancakes with homemade caramel apple sauce are my fav. Now I’m hungry.
