Here at the MAGGI® office, we’re getting super excited for pancake day and hope that you’re too. If you’ve always wondered what’s the difference between a pancake, crepe and galette then this article is for you.
A pancake and crepe are quite similar, the most obvious visual difference is that a pancake tends to be smaller and thicker whilst a crepe is much wider but also thinner. A pancake will normally contain a raising agent which makes them rise and is why they are so fluffy whilst the batter for a crepe will tend to be thinner by adding more milk or water to the batter.
A Breton galette is like a crepe but is instead savoury and is made using buckwheat. They’re fantastic filled with cheese, ham, mushrooms, eggs and more.
We’ve tried to think of a way that you could have one of our MAGGI products on a pancake, but we couldn’t think of one so if you’ve got an idea let us know on Instagram @maggi_uk.
