Superquinn had sent me a truckload of their fresh pancakes for review. I think it may have been a full truckload. I couldn’t eat them all so I skived off work and shared them with my friend Phil and his baby Noah (aged almost one but with the brain of a wise old sage).
This was lunch for us, and we delightfully overindulged. Lil’ Noah loved the chocolate pancake: chocolate batter with chocolate chunks. Phil and I weren’t so wild: the choco-pancake didn’t seem to travel or heat up as well. A special treat for the kids, me thinks.
The regular, crepe style pancakes fared much better, and we had plenty of toppings to try out. These were really good: light, crispy-edged, and as fluffy as a fresh pancake should be. No trouble with heating them. We drowned them in fresh cream, honey, and raspberries. I’d never thought of those toppings before: I’m more of a traditional, sugar and lemon kinda guy, though I’m also partial to real maple syrup. This time, I ate so much that I nearly cried, and I was flat on my back for an hour after. Worth. Every. Bite.
Superquinn are selling the pancakes, freshly made, in packets of five for €2.99.
