We have been eating them for thousands of years, the Greeks wrote poetry about them and they are loved and eaten worldwide; we refer of course, to none other than the humble pancake.

So, whether you call them drop scones, crempogs or griddlecakes here are five awesome recipes you can try out this Pancake Day.

Pancakes don’t care what time it is, you can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There seems to be an unwritten law that whenever you fancy a pancake it’s socially acceptable to bust one out.

Are you champing at the bit to try these out? Check out the recipe here!

We topped it all off with blueberries, passion fruit and coconut yoghurt. Let’s just say, there are smiling faces all around the office this morning!
