Share your pancakes and win!

February is finally upon us and that can only mean one thing… pancakes! To celebrate Shrove Tuesday, we’ve teamed up with Sainsbury’s to give away vouchers for the most creative pancakes.

As much as we love traditional toppings such as lemon and sugar, we want you to release your inner pancake artist and share something a bit more creative with us. Whether they’re colourful, beautifully decorated or just involve an unusual taste combination, your special pancake could bag you a fabulous prize.

We’ve got five £50 Sainsbury’s vouchers to give away for the pancakes we judge the best! Sainsbury’s is a great destination for all things pancakes – all their own-label sugar, including the Basics line, is fairtrade, while all their own-brand maple syrup comes from Canada.

What are you waiting for? Get flipping now and send us pictures of your pretty pancakes, along with details of how you created them.

Make sure you’ve got your basic pancake recipe first and, if you’re in need of a little pancake inspiration, check out our attempt at glitzing up our pancakes, plus 24 things you never thought to do with pancakes. Good luck!



Follow us on Twitter @goodtoknow or @GTKrecipes and then tweet us your pancake. You MUST include #pancakesmyway in your tweet.


Follow us on Pinterest and then add your pancake image. As with Twitter, you must include #pancakesmyway in your tweet to ensure we see it!
