Topping options...

Lemon & sugar: Serve the traditional way, with a squeeze of lemon juice and a dusting of sugar

Feta, honey & thyme: Try a Greek-inspired pancake. Top with a little crumbled Feta and a drizzle of runny honey, then sprinkle with a few thyme leaves to serve

Millionaire’s pancakes: Here’s one for an indulgent treat. Top your pancakes with a generous drizzle of ready-made caramel sauce and crumble over Co-op Irresistible shortbread squares.

Prosecco poached peaches: For a grown-up topping, boil peaches, in enough water to cover, for 5 mins, cool, then peel and cut into slices. Poach in a pan with sugar and Prosecco until syrupy. Spoon the peaches and syrup over the pancakes and finish off with a spoonful of mascarpone.
