  Strange pancake tastes revealed
Updated 04 March 2003, 07.51
Some people eat mince or jam in their pancakes
It's pancake day!

Food fans all around the UK will be getting ready for some flippin' good fun in the kitchen.

But how do you eat yours?

Mince and jam

What we stuff in our pancakes depends on where we live, a survey's shown.

  • Half of Scottish people eat theirs with cheese
  • 14% of people in the north prefer mince!
  • Fave fillings in the West country are jam and Golden Syrup
  • But nearly two thirds of people still prefer lemon and sugar

The poll, by Asda, also showed that more than three quarters of families will be making pancakes on Tuesday.

Perfect pancake

But they're tricky to get right and most people reckoned they'd end up with batter on the walls or ceiling, the survey said.

This comes as a maths whizz has come up with a formula to make the perfect pancake. But it's really complicated and not nearly so much fun!
