Pancake day (Shrove Tuesday) is just around the corner and to celebrate, Bonne Maman brings you ‘Colour your crêpe’, a selection of simple recipes and toppings to bring friends and family together for the occasion. While fluffy, thick pancakes are a favourite of the Bonne Maman team (and there are some lovely recipes for American style pancakes, here), the traditional French Crêpe is a great alternative to try without being too challenging or time consuming.
What is a crêpe?
A crêpe is essentially a very thin pancake; delicate, light and delicious.
