10 Delicious toppings for pancakes

Everybody loves pancakes, and you don't only have to put sugar and cinnamon on them. In fact, you can make a meal out of them with these great topping or filling ideas.

PS, for a lighter pancake, that's more like a crêpe, add a bit more water to achieve a thinner batter.

For a sweet pancake, add a quarter cup sugar and adjust the liquid if the batter is too stiff.

QUICK RECIPE FOR ABOUT 10 PANCAKES

For the batter, blend together:
1 cup flour
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 T oil
½ cup milk
½ cup water

Allow to rest for at least an hour before using.

SOMETHING A BIT DIFFERENT

Fry strips of bacon, mushrooms and onions and add a spoonful or two inside the pancake and top with your favourite cheese. Roll up or fold into triangles and put in a baking tray. Top with more cheese and grill.

Use the suggested toppings or fillings below to make a 'pancake sandwich' - simply alternate layers of pancakes and filling, then slice as you would a torte, and serve.

In France, these are known as 'mille crêpes' (from 'a thousand)', and are traditionally served layered with
whipped-cream-lightened pastry cream.
