As you can probably guess, I am a huge fan of Pancake Day (so much so, that a few years ago I set out on a one woman mission to find the best pancakes in Liverpool.) So, when the lovely people at Abra-ca-debora decided to deliver a gigantic hamper filled with everything I needed to make my Pancake Day extra special, I was thrilled. Particularly when I realised that all I had to do to prepare them was microwave them for 30 seconds before smothering them in a sweet topping of my choice. For while I may enjoy being creative in the kitchen, I am also very very lazy.
My prep skills of Abra-ca-Debora’s pancakes haven’t yet stretched as far as making one of the delicious recipes on their website (their Chocolate and Salted Caramel Stacked Pudding looks incredible). However, I can tell you that their ‘Diddy Dutch Pancakes’ taste heavenly when microwaved for 30 seconds and smothered in golden syrup. Particularly if you’re eating them for breakfast while suffering from a lethal red wine hangover and attempting to write up a gig review.
To celebrate Pancake Day (and the gloriousness of pancakes in general), Abra-ca-Debora have been kind enough to provide me with a pancake hamper to give away to one lucky person. Each one is packed with everything you need to satiate your pancake cravings any day of the week, including two packs of Abra-ca-Debora sweet pancakes, two packs of Abra-ca-Deborah Diddy Dutch Pancakes, a bar of Green & Blacks Sea Salt Milk Chocolate, a jar of Green & Blacks Lemon Chocolate and a jar of English Provender Company Lemon Curd (which is so good, you can just dive into a jar face first.) While it won’t reach you in time for Pancake Day, it’s just the thing for a lazy weekend breakfast, or post Sunday-lunch treat. After all, pancakes aren’t just for Pancake Day!
To win, just leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite type of pancake. Perhaps you’re a fan of Japanese Okonomiyaki? Maybe Vietnamese banh xeo float your boat? Or do you just like to keep it simple with a sprinkle of lemon juice and sugar? Whatever it is, you’ve got until Friday 7th March to enter. Good luck!
