One for the Savoury-lover: Cheese & Bacon Pancakes

Prep: 10 mins                  Cook: 20 mins                  Level: Easy                       Serves: 4


200g diced smoked bacon lardons

200ml crème fraîche

Pinch of ground nutmeg

8 cooked and cooled large pancakes

1 tbsp caraway seeds

2 shallots, thinly sliced

50g finely grated Gruyére

1 cucumber – peeled, halved and sliced

2 tbsp white wine vinegar

2 tbsp chopped fresh dill


  1. Heat the grill to a high heat, and put bacon lardons on a baking tray. Grill for around 10 minutes until crisp, and then set aside.
  2. Mix the crème fraîche with the nutmeg and caraway seeds (if using) and season.
  3. Working in batches, place a pre-made pancake on a non-stick baking sheet, divide the crème fraîche mixture between the 4 pancakes, and generously apply. Top each pancake with the lardons and cheese.
  4. Put pancakes under the grill for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is golden and bubbling.
  5. While each batch cooks, mix the cucumber with the vinegar and dill, season and serve as a side with the pancakes.

One for the Sweet-tooth:  Strawberry, Toasted Almond and Caramel Pancakes

Prep: 10 mins                  Cook: 5 mins                    Level: Easy                       Serves: 4


2 tbsp sugar

20 strawberries, chopped

100g flour

300ml milk

2 eggs, beaten

Oil for frying

1 tbsp caramel sauce

300ml Greek yoghurt

2 tbsp heaped, toasted almonds


  1. In a bowl, sprinkle the sugar over the strawberries and leave to soak while you make the pancakes. Pre-heat oven to a low heat.
  2. Cook pancakes as normal, leaving batter to stand until the top side looks dry and the bottom is golden, usually around 30 seconds. Flip and cook the other side.
  3. Once cooked, place two pancakes on each plate.
  4. Gently fold the juicy strawberries and caramel through the yoghurt until it ripples. Dollop the yoghurt mixture onto the pancakes and scatter with almonds.
  5. Enjoy!
