You have been instructed by the Heathers to find them a pancake dish with corn nuts before heading to the big party. Spread a generous amount of Nutella, or any hazelnut cocoa spread, before sprinkling some salted and roasted corn nuts on top of your pancakes. Complete the dish with a frozen strawberry-flavoured slurpee drink on the side.
Maria confesses her love of “crisp apple strudels” and “schnitzel with noodles” in the song “My Favorite Things.” For this pancake topping, try a deconstructed apple strudel without the pastry: slices of Granny Smith apple for tartness, chopped walnuts and raisins, and a syrup with brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice.
Taking inspiration from the iconic house where SpongeBob SquarePants lives under the sea, create some tropical upside-down pineapple and banana pancakes.

Don’t lose your head! You’re invited to join the pancake feast hosted by the six queens at the palace in Richmond. This savoury dish with wild game reflects the abundance of meat and wealth at Henry VIII’s court. If you don’t have any grilled venison or pheasant handy, substitute roast beef or turkey. Don’t forget to sprinkle some spices that, at the time, were deemed to be expensive – cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg or pepper. Or be creative and come up with six different toppings, one suited for each of the queens.
You are planning to make some pancakes and bring them to Jamie New’s 16th birthday celebration. Taking inspiration from Ray’s (Jamie’s mum’s best friend) gift to Jamie, melt some ‘After Sevens’ or any off-brand chocolate bars as the pancakes’ syrup. To top it off, sprinkle lots of edible glitters and coloured sprinkles to make the dish truly a Work of Art!
