Delicious gourmets with pancakes, what do you put on the table?

For the occasion, you obviously want to set the table as well as possible with appropriate decoration. A good gourmet, if you don’t have one, can easily be bought in a lot of local shops, the Blokker for example. 

Pancake gourmet ingredients

Pancake gourmet is always a fun idea. You can put all kinds of different things on the table. Not everyone always likes everything on the table, so you have to take a bit of a look at what everyone likes at home. Usually, the choice is either savoury or sweet. 

Whether you go for healthy food with lots of savoury things like vegetable pancakes (very tasty!) or you go for the classic icing sugar and syrup pancake.

Bonus tip: What is very tasty are pancakes with Italian herbs. It is then also nice if you make a bit thicker batter and add other savoury things like bacon for example.

Pancake batter

Of course, this should not be missing from the table. I always make my favourite pancake batter myself and leave it on the table in small bottles. With this you can then enjoy some variation, I always add a little cocoa powder before baking.

On the other hand, I can also highly recommend American pancakes. You might want to make extra and put them on the table as an extra choice.

The toppings

In terms of toppings, there are an incredible number of options. It just depends on which recipes you stick to and how you like them. The following ingredients are very tasty as toppings for a pancake from the grill!

  • Icing sugar
  • Whipped cream (whipped)
  • Strawberries
  • Apple (with cinnamon)
  • Sultanas
  • Banana
  • Hazelnut spread
  • Ice cream
  • Speculoos
  • Nuts
  • Redcurrants
  • Cheese

Apart from that, of course, you also bake pancakes with butter! This is one of the ingredients that is of course absolutely essential in all recipes.

Great as appetisers!

Besides, pancake recipes are not only a good idea during the holidays or for dinner. Pancakes from the gourmet set are also a great solution if you want to try something new in terms of drinks and snacks. 

Besides, during a get-together you can experiment with the gourmet anyway, for example, you can cook eggs in the pans with all kinds of delicious toppings as additions and you can even make a pizza on the gourmet, delicious with mozzarella!

Tip: fold-out gourmet

A handy tip if you want to experiment with the gourmet more often: choose a fold-out gourmet! I can tell you that this is a very handy invention. With a fold-out gourmet, you put everything you need to get going with those pans on the table in no time.

A fold-out gourmet is also very handy when you have a somewhat smaller table. Also, cleaning a fold-out gourmet is often very simple. For tips on cleaning your gourmet, take a look at our other blog posts!

Tips for the tastiest gourmet pancake

Making batter can sometimes still be a task. Therefore, we give you a few more tips for making tasty batter!

  • The most important tip is to let the batter rest for a while every now and then. This gives the gluten more time to bond with each other.
  • Use a little butter or oil under the pancakes. You can throw them on just like that, but a bit of butter or oil on the griddle really makes the pancake a lot tastier. It also makes sure they brown nicely, and without butter or oil, the pancake often burns quickly.
  • Combat batter that is too thick or too thin by making sure it runs nicely off the spoon or whisk. Too thick batter cooks badly and too thin batter makes the baking go way too fast. The solution to this can be to add a little milk for the batter that is too thick, and for the batter that is too thin, you can add a little pancake mix. This often ensures that too thick or too thin batter improves in quality.
