Celebrate Pancake Day with these delish recipes

pancake day recipes

Since going vegan at the beginning of this year, there’s been one annual holiday I’ve been least looking forward to: Pancake Day.

Quicker than I’ve been able to learn a decent vegan recipe, the day has crêped up on us and will be here tomorrow (TOMORROW!). But fortunately, the brilliant team over at Aldi have released the ultimate in Pancake Day recipes to tickle everyone’s tastebuds (and, you batter believe it, they’re blimmin’ amazing).

The three recipes come are made with some of the supermarket’s best liqueurs, adding a devilish kick to your pancakes (as if they weren’t already naughty enough, amirite?). The first recipe is vegan, and I’d argue looks the yummiest of the three, but I’m sure those of us who are happy eating eggs and milk will do well with the other two too!

Enjoy!
