Anyway as I was saying – Pancake Day is definitely one of the best days of the year.

Not that we really need an excuse to drag out our frying pans but it was great fun to have an opportunity to experiment early with different options! I’m sure on Pancake Day even Rapunzel returns her frying pan to its proper use and makes delicious, hot, yummy pancakes, in her case probably hazelnut pancakes (ooooooooooo ‘Nutella’ pancakes…. hmmmm just putting that on the shortlist for next year!!!!!)

This year however the winner is…………………. Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes and I promise that they taste every bit as divine as they sound! Crispy pancakes, succulent strawberries and the world’s easiest strawberry sauce.

I actually was going to do a different strawberry sauce, which is also super scrummy, but involves dehydrating strawberries and therefore takes a bit of planning (if you’re interested I used it on my Strawberry Coconut Cream Tarts) It’s sooooooo good but it occurred to me, since doing last week’s Almond and Apricot Shortbread, that there might be a quicker, simpler way to create a scrumptious strawberry sauce……………………..using St Dalfour strawberry jam of course!

Six large strawberries and 2 tbsp. of St Dalfour strawberry jam – whisk them together and you’re there in less than two minutes. You can prepare it whilst you are waiting for the pancake mix to rest – so cool!

So there you have it a simple, quick but absolutely divine choice for Pancake Day.
