In a world where almost anything goes there really are no restrictions as to what you can put on your pancakes! Of course the one tradition that stands out among them all is a simple, good sized dollop of butter. This is put on and spread out over the surface of the pancake while it is still hot so it can melt into each pancake. It doesn’t necessarily stop here though.
Pancakes may be a relatively universal concept, but toppings are not.
In the UK pancakes are most often served with a lemon and sugar topping. This creates a wonderful experience of bitter and sweet with each bite.
Canada of course being so well known for its maple syrup just has to traditionally top their pancakes with this sweet tasting and pure syrup. With its hint of maple it creates an eating experience that is unforgettable.
The Americans are a little more adventurous when it comes to their pancake toppings. In most cases it will be something sweet like maple syrup or honey or some other type of flavored syrup.
If you care to experiment with some pancake toppings, then each time you devour them you will gain a new experience.
While these are traditionally a food that is eaten at breakfast in some cases they are turned into a dessert. When this done they are sometimes adorned with some whip cream and a sprinkling of some types of fruit, which can be any kind really.
Something else that you may want to try is topping cooled pancakes or even warm if you like with some heavy custard or even ice cream!
Some cheese lovers enjoy a stack a pancakes to which they have topped with a variety of different cheeses. In this case they are being taken from the sweet category to the savory.
