10 delicious alternative pancake toppings

Pancake day is upon us! If you’re going to be rustling up some pancakes today, but you’re feeling like a change from the traditional lemon and sugar, then check out our list of alternative toppings.

From classic flavour combinations and sheer indulgence to exotic fruits and some of the more unusual pairings, hopefully we have you covered for Pancake Day inspiration!

Lemon meringue

The sweet crunch of lemon meringue combined with a tangy lemon curd is a delicious accompaniment to a light and fluffy pancake.


Another match made in heaven – warm banana and toffee pancakes will take the indulgence up a notch.

Strawberry and balsamic

It may sound a little leftfield, but balsamic vinegar has long been a culinary companion to the strawberry, providing the perfect balance between sweet and sour.

Apple crumble

Combine the sweet textures of an apple crumble with a light pancake and you’ll certainly be going back for more.

Salmon, avocado and crème fraiche

If you’re after a savoury option, then the combination of smoked salmon, avocado and creme fraiche will always work perfectly. It’s also a healthy option if that’s something you’re taking into consideration!

Pecan and maple

Take some American inspiration with the classic pecan and maple pairing, combining subtle sweetness and crunchy texture.

Chocolate, peanut and banana

For people with a particularly sweet tooth, chocolate, peanut butter and banana is one of the most delicious combinations of flavours.

Mango and passionfruit

How about some tropical inspiration? For an adventurous and fruity pancake topping, try mango, passionfruit and a touch of cream.

Ricotta, orange and honey

If you want to impress guests with a refined palette of flavours, try sharp orange, rich creamy ricotta and a drizzle of honey.

Chocolate orange

Melted chocolate orange and orange zest will provide the perfect comforting topping for one of your light and fluffy pancakes.
