Warburtons #PancakePossibilities


Warburtons Pancakes, Pancake Day Recipes, #PancakePossibilities

As a blogger, apart from getting to try out new things, we get other fantastic perks as well, such as receiving this amazing box of Sensory Fun Pancake Kit from Warburtons to explore their #PancakePossibilities with the kids during half term, and to find out new ideas for Pancake Day come Tuesday 4th March, 2014! 

We love Golden Syrup or a good dusting of icing sugar on our pancakes, and recently discovered that the American style Fried Bacon on Pancakes is amazing as well, but we never ventured further. This Sensory Kit has certainly opened our eyes and tingled our taste buds!

A quick introduction to our Sensory Kit, it contains 14 quality ingredients, though apart from chocolate and ground cinnamon, I've never seen the others used on pancakes (our pancakes knowledge are limited after all)! The 14 ingredients are:

Shelled Pistachios
Fresh Mint Leaves
Shaved Coconut
Granola
Chilli Jam (so so gorgeous!)
Dried Banana (not Banana Chips!)
Lime
Popping Candy
Chocolate Pieces
Ground Cinnamon
Mascarpone Cheese
Pancetta Cubes (To be cooked)
Feta Cheese
Marmite

There is also a small bottle of Maple Syrup Room Spray, to make your surroundings smell like you are enjoying a freshly made Maple syrup buttery pancake! On top of that, when you open the box it'll play a lovely song (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Imagination), and there are 2 bouncy pancakes on each corner as well. It's a Sensory kit alright and the kids loved it! I just love their eagerness to try out new combination!

There are 7 Pancake Possibilities, but instead of spinning the wheel, we quickly picked what intrigued us most (yup! We know exactly what we want to try! Or we just know what we won't like.. Marmite?!) and got on with our amazing lunch!

No.4 - Chocolate and Popping Candy

I had a choice of shaving the chocolate or melting it. We decided to melt it and the kids loved it! The popping candy gave us explosive amounts of fun in our mouth!

No. 7 - Pancetta and Pistachio

Meat and nuts are our favourite! This combination is amazing, it's packed with texture and flavour, and I'm really impressed with the quality of the ingredients!

No. 5 - Feta Cheese with Mint Leaves plus Pancetta

We had to add the Pancetta as we loved it so much! The saltiness from the meat and cheese and sweetness from the pancake went really well together, though the kids weren't very keen in the mint (I think it's acceptable).

No. 1 - Chilli Jam and Lime (only without the Lime)

This Chilli Jam is superb! It smells gorgeously spicy, but is actually sweet with a touch of spiciness, even the kids enjoyed it! We didn't add the Lime though as we aren't very keen in sour and spicy food (hubby might like it!). Now I'm wondering whether I should have just given it a go!

No. 3 - Dried Banana and Cinnamon

This is the first time we've tried dried bananas. We usually get banana chips but Clay loved it so much he ate the whole pot of dried bananas! Something to add to our snack list then!


We had so much fun discovering new Pancake Possibilities! All 3 of us (unfortunately hubby didn't get to enjoy this fab and fun lunch with us) agreed that No. 7 Pancetta and Pistachio is our favourite! But we've also developed our own favourite combinations as well:

Abby - Chilli Jam, Pancetta and Pistachio
Clay - Chocolate sauce with Dried Banana
Me - Pancetta, Pistachio and Feta Cheese

Come pancake day we are so going to make those instead of our usual syrup/ icing sugar type of pancakes! Thank you Warburton for providing us such a fantastic opportunity to discover new flavours for our pancakes!
