Pancake Day

pancake daySo it’s Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day today.

My absolute favourite filling is Nutella, sliced banana and vanilla ice cream.    I just love how the warm pancakes melt the ice cream and softens the banana and it just turns into a gooey, chocolatey, yummy delight.  Photographic evidence to follow later.  🙂

What is your favourite topping / filling ?

 

The result …… they were delicious 🙂
