House of the Rising Pancakes –
5 types of pancakes that will make you go WOW!
In celebration of Pancake Day on 5th March, let us share with you 5 must-try pancake recipes you normally wouldn’t think of!
What’s Pancake Day? It’s actually the last day of feasting before Lent (A period of Christian observance that precedes Easter). During Lent, Christians commit to fasting or giving up on certain foods to reflect and contemplate on their lives in preparation for Easter. It became a tradition to finish all the rich food that you have on the last day before Lent starts – and what food is richer than delicious fluffy pancakes? That’s how Pancake Day was born!
So without further ado, welcome to The House of the Rising Pancakes!

5. The Okonomiyaki
Okonomiyaki is a Japanese-styled pancake that is made from a variety of customisable ingredients (hence “Okonomi” which means “as-you-like-it”).
Traditionally, the batter is made of flour, nagaimo (Chinese yam), dashi (Japanese soup stock) and shredded cabbage, resulting in an extremely savoury pancake which smells and taste out of this world.
Also known as the Japanese Pizza, you can have the option to have toppings like seafood, meat and vegetables for the extra oomph! Click here for our okonomiyaki recipe!
