Make The Perfect Mix For Pancake Day

It’s nearly that time of year again. The only day when it’s absolutely acceptable to eat the same meal all day. Pure, unashamed indulgence. Get ready to pile them high for Pancake Day on Tuesday 1st March. 

But if you’re looking for more protein from your pancakes, Bulk™ ambassador Nadia has the perfect recipe. Are your taste buds ready for a treat? Before we reveal the only recipe you need to know this year (seriously, it’s on another level), let’s take a look at what Pancake Day is all about. 

Why do we eat pancakes for an entire day?

Also known as Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day was a traditional feast day before Ash Wednesday. Anglo-Saxon Christians were called for confession with a ‘Pancake Bell’ and ‘shiven’ (resolved) of their sins. This marked the beginning of Lent, and the 40 days of fasting before Easter. The next occasion for culinary extravagance. Well-deserved, wouldn’t you say? 

Back then, it was an opportunity to use up all the eggs and fats before fasting. Today, we do exactly the opposite. Stocking up on essential ingredients and tasty toppings is all part of the process. In the UK, we use around 42 million eggs in just one day. So if you were planning to make your own batter, and the supermarkets sell out, we’re a step ahead of the game. 

Cookies & Cream Pancakes

Nadia’s recipe uses our deliciously convenient Maple Syrup Protein Pancake Mix, topped with Cookies & Cream Flavoured Peanut Butter, drizzled with Maple Syrup Zero Calorie Syrup™ and finished with Cookies & Cream MACRO MUNCH™ Protein Biscuit. How high can you pile yours?

Ingredients:

  • 2 scoops Maple Syrup Protein Pancake Mix 
  • 100ml Milk
  • 1 heaped tsp Cookies & Cream Flavoured Peanut Butter
  • A drizzle of Maple Syrup Zero Calorie Syrup™ 
  • ½ crushed Cookies & Cream MACRO MUNCH™ Protein Biscuit 

 

Method:

  1. Mix the pancake mix and milk together.
  2. Leave to stand for approximately 2 minutes.
  3. Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan.
  4. Cook on a medium-high heat for approximately 1-2 minutes on each side until they fluff up and turn slightly brown.
  5. Top with the peanut butter, maple syrup and crushed biscuit.
