Shrove Tuesday is almost upon us and this year it’s time to get creative with your crêpes! Why not try filling your pancakes with fresh strawberries or raspberries, a little clotted cream and drizzle with Bonne Maman’s delicious Confiture de Caramel – a tasty alternative to chocolate spreads or lemon and sugar and a sure winner with the children.
If you’re looking for a grown up twist to an age-old favourite – Bonne Maman the Seasonal Cookbook contains 88 delicious sweet and savoury recipes for every season; including the French classic ‘Almond Crêpes with Plums in Thyme and Blackcurrant Syrup’. This easy to follow recipe makes a wonderfully light dessert or sophisticated alternative to our much loved pancake tradition.
A top tip for using those empty Bonne Maman jars with their signature gingham lids is to use them as storage – great for decorative little sugar jars ready for sprinkling this pancake day!
