Make Your Pancake Tuesday Pancakes More Exciting With These Fillings

Tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday aka Pancake Tuesday, which is still a popular excuse to chow down on some pancakes. If you want a more adventurous approach than lemon and better or maple syrup, Coles’ blog has seven more striking variations on a pancake-centric theme.

Personally, I will not be going anywhere Nutella on a pancake, but I’m definitely tempted by the thought of cream cheese, ham and chives. Given that it’s also National Bacon Week, I might vary the recipe with a little bacon. Hit the link for some other thoughts, and share your favourite pancake fillings in the comments.

7 Pancake Toppings to Try [Coles Blog]


  • How convenient, I bought a new pancake pan today!

    One of my favourites is sultanas in the batter with a topping of crunchy peanut-butter.
    Also peanut-butter and apple sauce works great as well. Or cooking a whole banana and wrapping the peanut-butter laden pancake around that. Or peanut-butter with choc-chips in the batter.
    Basically add peanut-butter to all your other toppings and you’ll be fine.

  • If you truly are Australian I strongly suggest my favourite topping:

    Vegemite and butter topped with maple syrup. Perfect match of sweet and savoury to start the day.

    • I love vegemite.. and maple.. and strange combos.. but even that I can’t consider..

      I’ve noticed in the past that if I use a knife for vegemite after honey or jam I have to wash it otherwise it ruins my vegemite toast 🙁

      I still want to try it though – anything once!

  • Why not Nutella? Sounds yummy. Anything chocolaty goes well with pancakes. The guy in the picture *must* know – his business model is built around that assumption.

  • I prefer crepes to pancakes. This is what I like on them:

    Grate up a granny smith apple, add some jam, heat until it bubbles. Spread some on your crepe/panacake then add a thin layer of ice cream.
    Roll and enjoy.
