| Filed in:
Pancakes wouldn’t be pancakes without Lyle’s Golden Syrup as a topping. Its unique taste and appetising aroma can very simply and magically create so many delicious toppings for your pancakes. If you have a passion for pancakes and are looking for inspiration this Pancake Day, then why not try some of these delicious ideas to get the family’s taste buds watering. Perfect pancake topping ideas: Crème Fraiche: Drizzle Lyle’s Golden Syrup over your pancakes and top with a dollop of crème fraiche. Delicious served with fruit salad. Chunky Apple Sauce: Simply heat 1 jar of chunky or smooth apple sauce and spoon between layers of pancakes (Scotch pancakes are best), stacking four or five pancakes high. Drizzle a tablespoon of Lyle’s Golden Syrup over each tower. Grand Marnier: Mix together 3-4 tablespoons of Grand Marnier (or brandy), 1 tablespoon of Lyle’s Golden Syrup and 3 egg yolks, and whisk over a pan of simmering water until a light thick creamy consistency is reached, then spoon over your warm pancakes. For a zesty finish, cut orange segments into small pieces and add to the mixture just before serving. Lemon Chantilly Cream: Mix together 150ml double cream, 1 tablespoon Lyle’s Golden Syrup, a splash of vanilla essence and juice of 1 lemon, until soft and creamy, and spoon on top of your pancakes. Goldie Oldie: You can’t beat a warm stack of freshly made deep-pan pancakes, drizzled with a generous helping of Lyle’s Golden Syrup and topped with a knob of butter or a heaped scoopful of vanilla ice cream. Try Lyle’s Golden Syrup Maple Flavour for something a little bit different.
