Romance is not dead with Abra-ca-Debora pancakes

Never thought of Dutch pancakes as being romantic?

Picture the scene. You and your honey, with a 200g bag of Abra-ca-Debora "diddy sweet Dutch pancakes" and a jar of honey to dip them in as you watch a romantic film together on Valentine's Day, along with a suitable bottle of wine?

What could be more romantic than that?

Or what about a pack of six Sweet Dutch Pancakes from Abra-ca-Debora to make the basis of a romantic Valentine's Day breakfast? Or a romantic lunch or tea, instead?

Apparently you have to consume the mini dipping pancakes within three days of opening. Although after eating these deliciously little morish treats, we are of the opinion that they are more likely to last you three minutes rather than three days!

The mini dipping pancakes don't have to be warmed (though there's nothing to stop you doing this) but you can cook the larger size pancakes. They are a very flexible friend as you can oven cook them, pan fry or even microwave.

We served ours with honey and chocolate hazelnut spread and they were absolutely delicious. In fact they are the only commercially cooked pancakes that I have tried that really could be taken as home cooked, but in the best possible sense of that term.

They are suitable for vegetarians, but not vegans

To learn more visit their website and see a whole host of fantasitc recipe ideas.

Not only are these pancakes great for a Valentine's Day treat, they'll be perfect for Shrove Tuesday, too!

They should be available at your local supermarket. If in doubt, ask at your supermarket's customer service desk.

And don't forget about Easter, too!

2 Sweet Abra-ca-Debora Dutch Pancakes
25g butter
50g milk or dark chocolate, broken into chunks
1.5 tbsp golden syrup
50g cornflakes
Bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs
Place pancakes in a bowl. Melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a saucepan over a low heat, or briefly in the microwave. Allow the mixture to cool slightly and then pour over the cornflakes. Mix with a wooden spoon.
Spoon the mix over one half of each pancake, fold over, allowing some of the mix to peep out.
Nestle the little eggs into the opening amongst the flakes
