5 pancake toppings to thank your farmers for #Pancakeday

Where would we be without our farmers?

 

One thing is for sure: We certainly wouldn’t be able to tuck in to that huge stack of pancakes, and the fillings to go with them.

 

No matter how you have yours, be sure to think about our Great British farmers for providing us with all the tasty ingredients we use on Pancake Day.

 

Enjoy!

Eggs

 

It is estimated over 52 million eggs are used on Pancake Day.

 

That's 22 million more than on any other day.

Milk

 

On average we eat two pancakes per person meaning we use enough milk to fill more than 93 Olympic swimming pools.

 

A perfect way to support #Februdairy

Flour

 

Your basic pancake recipe? Eggs, milk, flour.

 

Based on the average amount of pancakes one person will eat, that's almost 13 million kilos of plain flour.

Traditional toppings

 

Sugar and lemon seems to be the classic topping for most,with sixty-three percent saying this is their go-to, but without farmers, we'd have neither of these ingredients.

Savoury toppings

 

Many pancake eaters these days get creative with their toppings and fillings which include anything from plain cheese to ham, spinach and mushrooms.

 

But whatever you decide to pop in the middle of your pancake, it has most definitely been lovingly grown somewhere in the country.
