Brighten up your dull mornings with pancakes loaded with fun, colourful, and lip-smacking toppings! If you have a sweet tooth like me, Sunday mornings are never complete without a high stack of pancakes for breakfast.
I mean, who can say no to warm, fluffy, and buttery pancakes? These sweet hotcakes are heaven in a bite. They’re a breeze to make, to boot, making them such an ideal breakfast item.
Plus, it’s so easy to add personality to pancakes, too! Whether it’s classic, creative, sweet, or savoury flavours, the possibilities are endless.
We’ve got you covered. These pancake toppings are great on their own, but you can also mix and match to create even more spectacular combos!
1. Maple Syrup
I don’t know about you, but with pancake toppings, nothing stacks up to classic maple syrup. You can’t go wrong by drizzling this sweet and sticky syrup all over those warm cakes. Drenched in maple syrup, every pancake bite will be guaranteed perfection.
2. Whipped cream
I have another classic topping up next: whipped cream. Mildly sweet and super creamy, it’s the perfect addition to your fluffy flapjacks. While canned whipped cream is perfect for when you’re in a rush, nothing beats fresh. So, if you have time, whip your own batch!
Homemade whipped cream is so easy to pull off. All you need is whipping cream and a mixer! And it’s a million times lighter, fresher, and tastier than Cool Whip.
3. Fresh Fruits
Want a refreshing topping for hot pancakes? How about some fresh fruit? The keyword here is fresh. The freshest, ripest fruits will elevate your pancakes to new heights! And it doesn’t even matter what fruit you pick. Whether it’s slices of sweet bananas, juicy peaches, or tart kiwi, fruits and pancakes are always a hit. Or how about a combo of flavours?
Feel free to let your creative juices flow! Whatever fruits you choose, be sure to arrange the slices nicely for a prettier presentation. Trust me, nothing is more appetizing than neatly layered mango slices on top of your pancakes!
Now, this one’s a no-brainer! Sweet, creamy, and hazelnutty, Nutella is one of the easiest ways to elevate your pancakes. Spreading it all over your cakes will make the most stunningly sweet breakfast dessert!
The only downside to this topping is the calories. It’s impossible to have just one serving of Nutella pancakes! Consider yourself warned.
5. Peanut Butter
Peanut butter and pancakes? Holy moly, how rich and creamy!
It’s the perfect topping if you love a bit of saltiness and nuttiness to your pancakes. So go ahead, smear your pancakes with your favourite peanut butter for the ultimate breakfast experience.
Peanut butter can be a little too thick, though. To make things easier, melt it in the microwave with honey for 30 seconds, and you’ll transform it into an irresistible syrup.
Whip a pancake with this easy recipe:
Whisk the eggs and milk together. Add in the flour, and beat until the batter is smooth and lump-free. Pour the batter smoothly on low-medium heat with cooking oil spray. Serve immediately with your favourite ice cream, whipped cream, maple syrup, berries, or any other toppings you like.
