Pancakes and Home-Cooked Gifts …

Getting ready for Shrove Tuesday? Why not make your pancake supper as Fairtrade as possible?

It’s easy to hold a Fairtrade pancake event. Just make your favourite regular pancakes (don’t forget to use Fairtrade sugar, if you put sugar in them) and then splurge on the toppings. Fairtrade jam? Sugar and lemon? Honey? Chocolate/hazelnut spread? Mmmmm….

If you’re looking for an extra-special recipe, why not try these ‘chunky monkey’ pancakes from Divine

Or take a look at these oaty, banana-y pancakes. With Fairtrade sugar, bananas, vanilla and lemon, they’d be a veritable feast of Fairtrade goodness.

Treats to bring along …

Although last year saw an abundance of banana loaves, there’s a reason they are popular! Give this recipe from Coop a go – a lovely thing to bring if you’re invited to stay with friends.
