Pancake Day: Pancake Toppings

pancake day

This is a little recipe blog to go alongside my pancake bases yesterday. I’ve shared lots of photos of sweet and savoury toppings, but here are also some recipes that I created for Pancake Day last year. Some of them are super simple options, but they are tasty all the same.

I hope you enjoy them.

pancake dayCreamy tomato and mushroom pancakes

Serves 2-4 – On American pancake base (see Pancake Day Blog)


1 tablespoon of butter

300g button mushrooms (chop well for young babies & children under 5)

200g cherry tomatoes, halved (chopped more for children under 5)

100g natural yogurt/soya yogurt

1 teaspoon paprika

Sprinkling of flour

Chopped chives to finish


  • Heat the butter in a frying pan and once it starts to melt add the mushrooms.
  • Cook for around 15 mins or until they start to soften.
  • Add the tomatoes for a few minutes or until they begin to soften too.
  • Add in the yogurt and stir for a few seconds
  • Add the flour and paprika and stir well
  • Pour over pancakes and add a few chives to top

Frozen Forest Fruit Coulis Pancake Topping

Baby Pancake RecipeServes 4 (to go with American style pancakes)


300 grams of frozen forest fruits

4 tablespoons of natural yogurt or fortified alternative

A few sprigs of mint to garnish




  • Add the frozen (or they can be defrosted first) forest fruits to a pan on a medium heat. Heat for 5 minutes, whilst stirring all the time. This helps to turn them into a more liquid/coulis texture.
  • Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool.
  • Once the coulis has cooled, lay your pancake on a plate and add around 1/4 of the coulis alongside a dollop of natural yogurt and a sprig of mint.

  • 5-7 (around 80g) strawberries
  • 4 tablespoons of natural yogurt or fortified alternative

  • Optional: A few sprigs of mint to garnish


  1. Add all ingredients (bar the extra strawberries and the mint) to a mixer and blend until the ingredients have combined
  2. Run the mixture through a sieve to get a smooth mixture (or you can leave it as it is to add in some extra texture, if you prefer)
  3. Use a couple of spoonfuls on top of your pancakes and then throw on some chopped strawberries and mint to garnish
