New Tastes


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

With pancake day zooming towards us and the painful (hopefully I'm on my own here!) memories of last year's failed flip attempts resurfacing, I was more than glad to give Warburtons pancakes a whirl.

Ever since I was little I have never been enamoured with the classic lemon and sugar combo so when Warburtons told me about their 'Wheel of Possibilities' to help inspire creative toppings with new flavour mixes, I was really intrigued. 

I'm a creature of habit, often finding myself stuck in little ruts and food is no exception. It's so easy to just wake up and make yourself and your family the same old-same same-old that making something new was quite the excitement in the Glitter household this weekend!



Using the suggestions we found from Warburtons we tried out pancakes with dried banana and cinnamon and also pancakes with chilli jam and lime. Who had thought of lime on a pancake? Not me! I'm kicking myself for not considering it though because lime is completely and utterly one of my favourite tastes so in an ideal world EVERYTHING would taste of it!



I like that you can use the pancakes as little topping bases (either straight from the pack, grilled, toasted, warmed in the oven/microwave) and then get crazy creative with what you pop on top. It's also a really nice way to introduce Darcy to new tastes and textures as she's more and more becoming a fussy eater. Getting her involved in the 'cooking' (can you call this cooking??) process really spiked her interest and encouraged her to try new things. A win for Mummies!


I'm also happy with how versatile these little yummy gems are. I've always been an, 'any food any time' kinda gal so being able to make these into an anytime snack instead of just breakfast makes me smile. To add to my smile, Warburtons have just launched 2 new pancakes in 'cookie' and 'chocolate chip cookie' flavours. *drools*.

If you want to try your hand at some of the cool topping combinations Warburtons are suggesting, click HERE for their Facebook page, take part in their competition, vote for your favourite creations or submit your own ideas for other people to enjoy- you know how I love a bit o' community spirit!

What do you think? Do any of these ideas tickle your pickle? Did you note my witty little food pun there? Haha. 

This week will be food-tastic so do make sure to check back tomorrow to see what glittery goodness we have instore for you!

Toodlepip!

  7. Oooo, I have to say the lime sounds interesting! I have a sweet tooth and always use golden syrup, cream and berries.. but it seems this year I should definitely try something new! Maybe lime and sugar.. like people use lemon juice and sugar.. hmmmm.

  14. It looks delicious, Louise! I think I would top it with peanut butter, because I could just eat that with anything (ehm okay, almost anything).
    Have a nice week!

  18. I really do love you Louise, but you could at least be honest and up front when doing a post that's so obviously sponsored. We aren't stupid, you know. I'm really disappointed.

    1. It says "This post was exclusively sponsored by Warburtons" right on her post.

      Delete
    2. Oh I see that now… In teeny tiny barely readable little print at the bottom. I'm still very disappointed that she would do a sponsored post about packaged pancakes. It makes me feel like she'll promote anything these days if the price is right. How am I supposed to trust her opinion on anything if she's doing posts like this?

      Delete
    3. lol well ask yourself this. do you have a hard time trusting her opinion on pancakes? not hard to believe that she actually likes pancakes

      Delete
    4. Whether or not she likes them isn't the point. If she's being paid to advertise something then obviously her opinion on the topic is obviously going to be biased, so there is no way to know whether or not she's being honest. If it was a beauty product (like the video she did advertising those face masks) I could let it slide but if she's going to start advertising food for whatever company throws some money at her then what should we expect next? Blog posts about how much she loves Big Macs? Also it's extremely hypocritical of her to be advertising food that is laden with sugar and preservatives when she is also being sponsored by Weight Watchers and she's supposed to be getting healthier. If I worked for Weight Watchers I'd probably drop her sponsorship over this.

    5. Anon - I COMPLETELY agree with EVERYTHING you've said. I am so disappointed and saddened to see Louise act like this. The sponsors and the whole selling-your-soul thing have been gradually creeping up in the background for a while now, and this really is the last straw. Louise is no longer the Louise I knew and I can't tell you how upset and cross this makes me. She genuinely got me through some hard times but enough is enough - Louise you're using us. I am unsubscribing from your blog and Youtube,

  34. I make a huge batch of homemade pancakes for my kids about every two weeks. I freeze the leftovers and microwave them when asked for. My kids gobble them up with syrup. They reheat like fresh off the griddle! As for myself, I used to love them. But now I try to steer of heavy breakfast foods.

  41. I haven't attempted to make pancakes for ages as they always turn out to be a disaster so thank god for store bought pancakes. I'm so boring when it comes to toppings though. I need to branch out but I'll probably end up sticking to my usual butter and jam combo.

  42. I don't think I could ever buy pancakes when they are so easy to make! But I am all for different toppings - mine is usually jam and lemon juice or banana and nutella.!!

  49. Oooo these sound really yummy! I'm crazy over pancakes, but I usually just stick to simple chocolate chip pancakes, so I'd like to branch out and try some different flavors!

  55. Wow! So many different flavour combinations than I've ever tried. I've never even heard of Lemon and Sugar? Where I'm from the norm is Butter and Maple Syrup (mmmm, especially real maple syrup from the market). Though, sometimes I also do peanut butter.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I absolutely love all things pancakes! Love seeing reviews of products that I think I would love (even if I don't think I can get them in the states!).

    Love the topping ideas as well! <3

  65. Can't wait for Pancake Tuesday. One of my kiddos is allergic to milk and eggs so I make vegan pancakes. I freeze the extra between sheets of wax paper to have quick breakfasts before school. She's at the age for being picky - just keep serving good food. I tell my kids it's my job to provide the healthy food it's their job to eat it. I will now have to try jam and lime on pancakes.
