What's your flavour this Pancake Day?

Pancake day is one of my favourite days of the year. I usually indulge in so many pancakes that after I couldn't look at another pancake for at least another day or so. haha

This Pancake day Num Noms set us a challenge to make our Num Nom inspired pancakes and use The Num Nom scents to choose our flavour. 

I will admit, I have been a little bit of a cheat this year. We normally make pancakes from scratch but as we are moving we have made do with an American Pancake mix. The Num Noms helped me get everything I needed ready. The mix, and some eggs. 


I decided that I would take my inspiration from the Series 3 Num Noms. They have so many different flavours and I knew I would find the perfect flavour for my pancake. 

First I made Lily's Pancake. Lily loves Chocolate, So I used Chocolate Sprinkles as my inspiration for this one. Lily didn't want sprinkles on it though (typical 2 year old) and so it ended up being chocolate that she poured all over it and then we attempted to make eyes out of white chocolate. Okay I admit, wasn't a perfect shaped Num Nom, but a good attempt and Lily liked it. 


Then it came to mine and my partners pancakes. I will admit i'm not to adventurous with my pancakes. But luckily I found the perfect Num Nom to satisfy my Pancake needs. Cyrus Citrus. Mmmmm yes yummy Lemon with added sugar on top is usually the way I enjoy my pancakes so I was super happy to see that there was a Lemon Num Nom. 


My Partner also loves Lemon on his pancake but he also has another weakness. That is for Maple Syrup. So he was also really happy to be able to use Maple Sugars as his inspiration for his pancake. This Num Nom agree'd that Maple Syrup on pancakes is very yummy nummy! 


Num Noms are so great for pancake flavour inspiration. You don't just have to take inspiration from one Num Nom, you can also combine them to make other flavours. If I hadden't been so busy I definitely would of combined Chocolate Sprinkles with Blue Barry and maybe Strawberry Snow and make a Chocolate and blueberry and Strawberry pancake! YUM

So, Why not head to the Num Nom Website to find your flavour for Pancake day. Feel free to leave a comment below to what yours would be!
