Have a flippin’ good Pancake Day whilst in lockdown with these pancakes!
Lockdown or not, Pancake Day is imminent and it’s not going to stop us from eating as many pancakes as we can. Luckily, you can still enjoy a stack or two of pancakes from some of these Glasgow cafés and restaurants either delivered to your door or via click and collect. Whether you’re after American-style pancakes or fluffy soufflé ones, this pancake round-up has them all.
Stack and Still is the city’s biggest pancake house and it offers up to 12 million different menu combinations – available at all three locations across Glasgow. Sadly we can’t enjoy Pancake Day at one of their branches but luckily Stack and Still have a few treats up their sleeves! Launching their pancake mix in December 2019, the pancake pioneers were ready to feed the nation pancakes from home before the lockdown even began! They have seven different pancake mixes to choose from (including a gingerbread flavour, plus vegan and gluten-free options) which contain the ingredients to make approximately 20 large pancakes. Simply follow the instructions on the pack and then all you need is to add your favourite toppings to your stack. You can also order one of their DIY pancake kits which includes toppings and range in flavours such as Jaffa Cake; Nutella and mascarpone; salted caramel and banana; strawberry and cream; and Oreo, peanut butter and blueberry. Head to their website to order yours.
The NYC-inspired diner, Tribeca, is of course here to serve beautifully soft pancakes this Pancake Day to those in Glasgow. You can order their Brooklyn Breakfast of two buttermilk pancakes, back bacon, pork sausages, hash browns and two fried eggs for the ultimate Pancake Day treat or there is their classic buttermilk pancake stack with lashings of their Canadian maple syrup (which we need on tap) or pick from their tasty toppings. Tribeca is serving pancakes topped with extras like homemade butterscotch sauce, caramelised banana, white chocolate sauce, candied nuts or maple butter, to name a few. You can also order their buttermilk pancake sticks for a delicious finger food alternative that can also be served with multiple toppings including ice cream. For added decadence, wash those pancakes down with one of their blizzard milkshakes with flavours such as Biscoff, peanut butter and jelly or Bourbon brownie.
