So it’s Shrove Tuesday, Pancake day. You’ve a stack of pancakes ready, but what to fill them with? Here are 5 suggestions –
Heat the pancakes (2 or 3 per person) in a frying pan, with 3 tablespoons of limoncello. Remove from the pan and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with fresh lemon zest, a little fresh lemon juice and some golden caster sugar, honey or syrup.
Heat the pancakes, then serve with a tablespoon of lingonberry jam, thick yogurt, a dusting of icing sugar and a sprig of mint.
Chocolate and Hazelnut Pancakes:
Cover the warmed pancakes with Nutella, sprinkle with whole roasted hazelnuts, and a dusting of icing sugar. Serve with coconut yogurt, seen here with a dusting of ground chocolate.
Caramelised Spiced Apple Pancakes:
Serve the warmed pancakes with a few slices of apple which have been caramelised and flambeed with brandy. Then fill the pancake with ginger yogurt, and dust with mixed spice, stem ginger pieces and icing sugar.
Coconut and Lime Pancakes:
A few tablespoons of your favourite coconut yogurt, together with some fresh lime zest and a squeeze of lime juice will add a mojito zing to your pancakes. Finish with a drizzle of fruit or maple syrup.

Packaged in a beautiful sea green box, these coconut truffles are an absolute delight. You don’t get many in terms of weight, but for the current sale price of £3.50, if you’re looking for a last minute gift for the coco-nut or the chocoholic in your life, you could do far worse.
The coconut filling has a pleasant flavour, if a little over sweet in it’s aftertaste. The milk chocolate is smooth in texture and delicious – what you would expect from the Lindt chocolate house.
The box weight is 200g, for which you will get around 16 truffles, or in my language, gifts for 2 people! (more on this later). Normally retailing for about £4.90, I suggest you take advantage of the current offer and treat yourself, or a loved one with these spherical delights.
I would have liked a few more in the box for the retail price, but for the sale price, I think it’s reasonable.
I shall be posting gifting ideas soon, including how to make presents for 2 people, out of 1 box of chocolates. For gifting ideas, subscribe to this blog to make sure you don’t miss out.
As ever, thanks for reading. If you have any comments or would like me to review other food and drink items, please share them in the comment box.
