5 of the best Cornish produce for your pancakes
Looking for a bit of Cornish inspiration on some classic and other rather special pancakes for Shrove Tuesday?
We’ve been researching to see what can be created with locally sourced Cornish produce that can be found in supermarkets across the country and have come up with some tasty savoury and sweet recipes to whet your appetite:
CORNISH BRIE: Garlic mushroom and St Endellion Brie pancakes full recipe from Saga
If you love mushrooms and adore brie, you will fall head of heals for this recipe, mushrooms cooked in butter, spring onion, garlic and thyme add a winning combination, a glug of white wine and finally, chunks of soft and delicate St Endellion brie stirred through – wow!
St Endellion has been the location credited with making creamy brie for generations, although Cornish brie is made all over the county. St Endellion brie made extra creamy by the addition of double cream to the recipe. It goes great with buttery garlic mushroom. Of course, you can use any brie if no Cornish brie is available!
CORNISH YARG: Yarg cheese, squash and sage pancakes full recipe from Lynher Dairies
A lovely savoury combination of sweet butternut squash and a crumbling of delicious, salty Cornish Yarg cheese, wrapped in a pancake and served with salad and chutney.
Cornish Yarg is a lovely cheese, traditionally wrapped in nettle leaves, or sometimes wild garlic leaves and is delicious on crackers as well as pancakes!
CORNISH SEA SALT: Sweet and Salty Pancakes with salted honey and fresh fruit full recipe from Cornish Sea Salt
The fluffy wholewheat pancakes combine the sweetness of brown sugar, honey and fresh fruit, with the spiciness of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice and the saltiness of Cornish sea salt flakes to make a really moreish combination.
Cornish Sea Salt is a fresh, natural taste and these flakes will give a deliciously light saltiness to the sweet and fruity recipe.

CORNISH CIDER: Apple pancakes with Wassail Mulled Cider Sauce full recipe from Cornish Orchards
If you have a drop of mulled cider left over from Christmas, this is the recipe for you! It brings together the flavours of cider, oranges and spices with apple to create a really tasty pancake!
Cornish Orchards are masters of cider, apple juice and even ginger beer making!

CORNISH CLOTTED CREAM: Classic fruit and Cornish Clotted Cream
Let’s face it, anything in a pancake with a dollop of Cornish Clotted Cream has got to be a winner, so pick whatever is your favourite fruit, pack into a pancake and add a good spoonful of clotted cream – drizzle on a bit of chocolate sauce for an extra-indulgent one!
