Giveaway: Abra-ca-Debora Pancake Day Hamper

It’s been a little while since I’ve hosted a giveaway, this is the first one of the year, in fact. I managed to miss out on offering anything over Valentine’s Day, so instead I’ve got a lovely hamper full of Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day goodies for one of you to feast on. Pancake Day falls on Tuesday 4th March this year. I really do appreciate all of the comments and support I receive on this blog, and so a giveaway is a nice way of saying thank you.

abra-ca-deboraIt’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since I last mentioned  Abra-Ca-Debora pancakes, when I created a tasty Cream Chicken and Spinach Savoury Dutch Pancake recipe, which was also featured on the recipe section of the Abra-Ca-Debora website.  Although it isn’t hard to whisk up a quick batch of pancakes batter, sometimes it is nice to be able to put together a really quick snack for the children after school using Abra-Ca-Debora pancakes and they also make a handy pudding or sweet snack, too.


I’m sure I’ll be coming up with some new ideas for tasty pancake filling again this year. If you missed them last year, do give my Polish Sweet Cream Cheese Pancakes a go, they taste almost like having a pancakes crossed with a warm cheesecake.


Here’s how to enter the giveaway –

    Classic lemon juice and sugar for me … perhaps with a drizzle of cream if I’m feeling really ‘naughty’! 😉

  2. Amanda Richardson says

    Sliced bananas with chocolate sauce in between stacked pancakes with a dollop of vanilla ice cream on the top

  3. Hayley Todd says

    I love the traditional lemon and sugar, but sometimes as a little treat, I love chocolate sauce and strawberries x

  4. Margaret Nolan-Meddings says

    Mango, greek yogurt, honey and passion fruit for the sweet toothed. Or for a sweet and savory I would go for cranberry, melted brie and bacon. 😀

  5. Michaela Williams says

    I love my mum’s home made apricot jam, it is the best pancake topping ever.

  6. clare d says

    lemon and sugar but inspired to try more from yours listed the cheesy mushroom looks lovely! x


    I put a tiny pinch of cinnamon in my batter to give them some extra spice and then I just fill with sliced bananas and strawberries (very out of season but they just so taste of summer!)

  8. shelley stevenson says

    sorry to be boring, but my favourite thing is a plain warm pancake with nothing but a knob of lurpak butter.. so comforting :)

  9. ali thorpe says

    I feel like I should say something elaborate and creative but I honestly love simple lemon and sugar the most!

  10. Laura Vitty says

    I prefer simple sugar and lemon juice… sometimes I’ll push the boat out and have lime juice instead 😛 x

  11. sylvia gill says

    As your hamper contains some yummy Green and Black’s – it would have to be Melted Chocolate and Clotted Cream… Yum and the Diet starts Wednesday !…

  12. claire wilkinson says

    lemon juice sugar and golden syrup on tuesday hen on ash wednesday we have corned beef hash and pancakes

  13. JULIE D. BANKS says

    I am very traditional with lemon juice and sugar, but hubby does the full works- ice cream, nuts, glace cherries, squirty cream and chocolate sauce!!

  14. Jennifer Rhymer says

    Warm red berries wrapped in a pancake with a drizzle of raspberry coulis on top & served with vanilla ice cream :)

  15. Patricia Avery says

    Spread with Golden Syrup, rolled up and sprinkled with sugar and lemon juice :)

  16. Adrian Marsh says

    For Savoury: I would have Sausage and Scrambled Egg

    ******For Sweet: Banana and White Chocolate!!!! *****

  17. Jen Samuel says

    I love a savoury pancake – salmon and prawn in a creamy sauce wrapped in the pancake and oven baked with more sauce and cheese on top :-)

  18. says

    I like lemon, but with a scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream. The ice cream has to be slightly melted when it goes in the pancake, and it’s really yummy :)

  19. Susan Kempson says

    Love my pancakes with raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and a dash of maple syrup, yum yum xx

  20. damian standring says

    i’m torn between the traditionals lemon and sugar or sticky syrup ……so i’d have one of each :)

  21. Ruth Kitson says

    I love sliced strawberries and whipped cream in mine, probably with some golden syrup drizzled over them too! :)

  22. Corin says

    Lemon & Sugar! Traditional, I know, but another one is Orange & Sugar which is similar but slightly sweeter.

  23. says

    I love my granny polish version of filling – polish cottage cheese with sugar, raisins a bit of double cream to give it a spreadable texutre and dash of cinnamon then folded and fried on butter on both sides :)

  24. says

    Lemon and sugar. Will have Dutch friends visiting around Pancake Day though so may go the whole Dutch hog and have icing sugar and oodles of sprinkles!

  25. says

    Love pancakes and I’m happy to eat pretty much anything with them, but I do love lemon and brown sugar. One of my favourite treats as a child was pancakes filled with cheese sauce – gosh now there’s a thought.

  26. Caroline H says

    I’m a little odd. I like savoury fillings. I think spinach and ricotta would be my favourite.

  27. Kirsten Barthy says

    It’s Nutella but I’m intrigued by your Polish cheesecake option. It’s my daughters birthday on Pancake Day this year so I’m planning on a pancake feast

  28. sarah birkett says

    sugar and lemon, though I have been known to eat bacon and maple syrup once and it was lovely

  29. Tracey E Poland says

    I’m a golden girl – there’s nothing tastier than golden syrup and butter on pancakes. Canada girl comes a close second (Maple syrup and butter)

  30. Carolyne Yaxley says

    We love lemon and sugar in this house too although chocolate spread and squirty cream are good too!!
