Last week I attended the #DebsPancakeParty at the Debenhams Press Office to celebrate Pancake Day and try out the Breville Crêpe Maker. I felt extremely privileged to be in a room with some amazing bloggers and I had such a great time, I mean who doesn't love gorging on pancakes in a 1950's style kitchen setting? Pancakes make my taste buds go wild; I seriously have a pancake addiction. As a young'n (not that I am that old now) Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday -whatever you like to call it- was my favourite day of the year (apart from Christmas of-course). As I have gotten older, pancakes aren't that much of a special occasion thing - I eat them quite regularly throughout the year. Saying that, I tend to eat a lot of buttermilk American-style pancakes, so delving into the proper crêpe-like delicacy with traditional lemon and sugar is nothing more than extreme comfort. Although, L&S is my favourite topping, I do like to up the filling ante on occasion and whack out the Nutella, strawberries and marshmallows. That is my plan for tonight's dinner: pancakes, a double helping of pancakes, and more pancakes. I only wish I had this handy little Breville device we used the other night as it's super easy to use, has great non-stick properties and can also be used for the likes of wraps and quesadillas - all at an extremely bargainous price of £20 (usually £30 but currently on offer). Even for £30 I think it's really worth it, but since I am moving house soon I didn't need any other large object to worry about packing away and transporting somewhere. Maybe I will get one as a moving-in present, wherever I end up. What are your favourite toppings? Oooh just remembered, maple syrup is a gooden' too!

  1. Nutella and strawberries are my all time favourite topping. Although lemon and sugar is such a classic. I think every house needs one of these gadgets!

  2. This looked lovely and pancakes sounds so good right now and I love Nutella and syrup on mine but not together I just can't choose sometimes.

    1. I can NEVER choose! It's so difficult. Syrup with a dusting of icing sugar, YUM!

  3. I only just learned about Pancake Day (from another blog, in fact!) but what an awesome day. These ones look amazing. To be honest I am probably more of a fan of crepes than american style pancakes even though I am from the US. I find them lighter and easier to digest so early in the morning.

    1. Oh really? I didn't know it was just a British thing since pancakes are so big in America. Yes, I prefer crepes too! x
