Roasted Rhubarb and Ginger Curd Pancakes

It’s Pancake Day! Whilst today may be the perfect day to indulge, for the folks over at Abra-ca-Debora, everyday is Pancake Day! I was so pleased to see that my giveaway for an Abra-ca-Debora Pancake Day Hamper, filled to brim with goodies was so popular – thank you to everyone who entered to win. The winner has been announced on the giveaway post. I also received a hamper for review and couldn’t wait to try some of the pancakes and sweet treats buried within. For the grown-ups, I made some Maple Syrup Roasted Rhubarb and Ginger Curd Pancakes. I used the Abra-ca-Deborah Sweet Dutch Pancakes, along with some in-season British rhubarb and some of the luxury ginger curd within the hamper, made by The English Provender Co. If you can’t get your hands on any of the curd, some sweet lemon curd would work well, too, or simply a good splash of Maple syrup or honey.

The Diddy Dutch Pancakes were another story altogether! They were a huge hit with my kids, who gave them a big thumbs up! They are firmly on our menu for tonight. The Diddy pancakes are perfect size for little fingers to pick up and dip into some tasty pots; we tried melted chocolate, lemon curd, fruity coulis and some warmed maple syrup.

Abra Ca DeboraThe Diddy pancakes can be warmed in the oven or just in the microwave for a few minutes, they are also quite sweet as a special little lunch box snack.

Diddy PancakesSo. along with our Blueberry and Vanilla Cheesecake Pancakes, we’re in for quite a treat tonight. For a savoury treat, I’d recommend my Creamy Spinach and Chicken Pancakes, as featured on the Abra-ca-Debora website. Some of the most popular answers in the giveaway as to your favourite toppings included –

  • Classic lemon and sugar or golden syrup
  • Baked cinnamon apples
  • Banana and chocolate spread or Nutella
  • Fruit, such as strawberries and blueberries with cream
  • And one of the most intruiging suggestions by Adam; cream cheese and chestnut puree with sour cream

I wonder whether any of these toppings or one of my recipes will take your fancy?!

My Roasted Rhubarb and Ginger Curd Pancakes are my entry into this month’s Simple and in Season, now open for March. Please do link up your seasonal recipes, too.

  1. what a lovely recipe- I missed this on pancake day, but hey who needs to confine lovely treats like these to one day- this is a perfect brunch. I have done a similar rhubarb topping before but love the idea of adding the ginger here. mmm!

    1. Ren Behan says:

      Thank you for ALL the wonderful comments on this post!

  2. I must remember this for when my rhubarb starts to come through with a vengeance. I refuse to buy the forced stuff because soon enough I’ll have more than I can use in the garden.

  3. I am so craving rhubarb after seeing this recipe. I love rhubarb s much. I wait all year for it to be in season. Haven’t seen any yet, but now I shall be on the lookout. Delicious recipe Ren.

  4. So many pancakes Ren – what a feast. We had some of my blood orange curd on pancakes and that was good. Rhubarb would be brilliant too. I’ve made rhubarb curd in the past, but will now add ginger if I ever make it again.

  5. Great post Ren – sounds like you enjoyed that hamper of pancakes as much as we did 🙂 I really loved the ginger curd too with blueberries, lemon juice and ice cream. The rhubarb looks divine and has reminded me I must get some while it’s in season.

  6. I loved those diddy pancakes and so did my kids. I think I may just have to get stuck into some roasted rhubarb to go with that delicious ginger curd now. Such a delicious flavour combination.

  7. Heidi Roberts says:

    The rhubarb and ginger curd look lovely and very up to the minute and seasonal. I love ginger – it is always in season.

  8. Love the look of the rhubarb and paired with ginger curd. Oh My! A favourite combo for me. I don’t think I’d buy plain old pancakes as they are so easy to rustle up but I LOVE those diddy ones. Remind me of the poffertjes we had in Amsterdam last Easter

  9. Yum yum yum! So good I had to say it three times. I love rhubarb and ginger and would happily have these on pancakes. I’m not a fan of pre packed pancakes that you get in supermarkets but have read lots of lovely posts about Abra-ca-Debora. Will have to try it out one day/

  10. Lovely pancakesI love rhubarb! I remember my Mum making the most amazing sponge with rhubarb ever 😉
