GIVEAWAY: Pancake Day

Pancake Day is one of my favourite celebrations of the year. Not only do you get to legitimately eat as many pancakes as you physically can, but it’s also a sign that spring is on the way. Hooray!

I’m away on a work trip on actual Pancake Day (tomorrow, fact fans!) so Rob and I decided to celebrate on Saturday instead, with a little help from an amazing pancake hamper that you can win…

Pancake Day hamper, c/o Abra-ca-Debora

This gorgeous wicker hamper is packed with everything you need for a perfect pancake day – two packs of Abra-ca-Debora (which is the greatest name for a brand EVER) dutch pancakes, two packs of mini pancakes, two bars of Green & Black’s, a lemon and pots of lemon curd and ginger curb from The English Provender Co. Yum!

There are some really amazing pancake recipes on the Abra-ca-Debora website – the Ice Cream Fudge Brownie Pancake is particularly interesting – but I usually go classic. Golden syrup, a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of sugar is a hard combination to beat.

I tried smothering a pancake in lemon curd and topping with fresh fruit too, which was insanely good. Also, the little mini pancakes are ridiculously moreish and so good to just shove in your mouth at regular intervals. The pancakes are super easy to make – a few minutes in the microwave and they’re done and SO tasty. Rob often makes us pancakes for breakfast but it was so nice to do something quick and easy with these… and no washing up after, either!

To celebrate Pancake Day tomorrow, I have one Abra-ca-Debora Pancake Hamper to give away. It won’t reach you in time for the day itself, but everyone knows pancakes are for life and not just Shrove Tuesday.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post and tell me what you have on your pancakes. Don’t forget to use the widget below to log your entry and gain an extra one. Good luck!

Just so I don’t feel bad eating them all day I’d have a vegetable fajita filling with chickpeas, spices and pepper. Delicious 🙂


I swear I was really trying to leave a comment…I guess the widget is too advanced for me….I love a classic butter and maple syrup on my pancakes…and blueberries!


I’m not a fan of pancakes but the kids and wife are. They love the standard Lemon and sugar!

claire sen

really good quality vanilla ice cream. I have a thing for it at the moment.
also sugar and lemon and some maple syrup. 🙂

Emma Price

Lemon juice and sugar for me – although I did discover putting a thin coating of lemon curd on with sugar makes it even more yummy!

Maria Fallon

Lemon and sugar will always be my favourite but peanut butter and banana is delicious and I LOVE peanut butter and chocolate spread- it tastes like a melted Snickers bar!

I’m a massive fan of staying simple with the lemon and sugar but Jim made lobster pancakes last time we were together for Pancake day. Yum!


I tried Pinapple icecream (which MrC made nom nom) and choclate suace it was feast for the tastebuds.

Claire Booth

Sad I missed the comp but that Lemon Curd looks lush – I am a huge fan of a great lemon or lime curd so I think I will have to go and find that particular one to try Cx
