Paul Ainsworth’s Pancake Day

Enjoy a fliptastic pancake day!

This Pancake Day, we have added a spoonful of wonderful to Shrove Tuesday celebrations. We’ve teamed up with Celebrity Chef and Cornish restaurateur Paul Ainsworth, to create two deliciously unique pancake combinations.

These aren’t like your usual pancakes…..Paul and his team of elite chefs, have created a luxury Pancake Afternoon Tea with two never-tasted-before serves – a Layered Rodda’s Clotted Cream and Banoffee Pancake and ‘Thunder and Lightning’ Saffron Pancakes with Rodda’s Clotted Cream filling.

Layered Clotted cream and banoffee pie

This layered Rodda’s Clotted Cream and Banoffee Pancake is a sure showstopper.  Individual fluffy American-style pancakes are stacked with rich layers of Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream, butterscotch rum-soaked bananas and sprinkles of chopped pecan nuts – finished with a generous pouring of chocolate sea salt sauce.  The final magic ingredient? Dashes of popping candy!

Pauls other creation, ‘Thunder and Lightning’ Saffron Pancake with Rodda’s Clotted Cream Filling is a culinary twist on a Cornish classic. These infused crêpes are filled with a zesty clotted cream Chantilly and saffron infused whipped crème fraiche, folded into layers – drizzled with golden syrup and a dusting of icing sugar.

A word from Paul

When it comes to creating extra special desserts, you can’t beat Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream.  We had a lot of fun making these recipes!  Using some of our signature surprises, like popping candy, they are sure to put a smile on your face.  And that’s what it’s all about.  Family. Delicious pancakes, and just having a good time.”
