Pancake Day – One of the nation’s favourite celebrations. An entire day dedicated the fluffy, flour based treats that makes the entire of the British Isle go absolutely flippin’ mad.

Tuesday sees many of us grab our frying pans, clutching our spatulas and tossing multiples of these scrumptious snacks before coating them in an array of taste bud tingling toppings. From Lemon and Sugar to Chocolate & Strawberries, we love everything about pancakes and here at Hogarths we feel the passion for the pancake.

As many boozy blogs out there will be focusing on how to make your pancakes gintastic. We’ve decided this year that we would do something a little different and provide you with a pancake recipe that we believe is just simply rumtastic.

Here’s introducing Spiced Monkey Pancakes.

Based on the base recipe from the great minds at Spicy Southern Kitchen, our version is created from a concoction of spices, rum caramel sauce and topped with delicious bananas – resulting in a pancake recipe to rumember.

Here’s what you need

1 Large Banana

2 Medium Eggs

Splash of Vanilla Extract

½ teaspoon of ground nutmeg

½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon

 

Topping

Banana (sliced evenly)

Rum Caramel Sauce (https://spicysouthernkitchen.com/)

1/4 cup melted butter

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup water

Tablespoon of Spiced Rum (we recommend Dead Man’s Finger or Cargo Cult)

How to Make these Perfect Pancakes

In a bowl, mash 1 large banana with a fork until it becomes puree

Stir in 2 beaten eggs and spices.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan or pancake pan over a medium heat and brush with ½ tsp oil.

Pour the mixture into the pan (depending on the size of your pancakes) and cook for 1-2 minutes each side.

How to Make Cracking Caramel Sauce

Combine all the ingredients together and bring to a boil.

Continue to boil until mixture thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and add your hearty splash of spiced rum.

So if you are fancying a little something extra this Pancake Day. Get yourself in the kitchen and rustle up these rumtastic treats that will definitely keep you flipping time and time again.
