It’s Pancake Day and the perfect opportunity to tuck into a tasty tower of pancakes. Now, opinions may vary as to what topping to go for, but there’s been a notable lack of conversation about how to actually serve it.
Some might fold it up or roll their pancake using their bare hands, running the risk of scorching their hungry fingers or getting their fingers covered in sticky toppings.
Others will simply forego rolling all together, slicing into the pre-Lent treat like a, well, cake before gobbling it up in sugary, delicious forkfuls.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with this of course, but if you’re keen to ensure your pancake plate is Instagram-worthy this Pancake Tuesday, you should have a go at one woman’s top tip.
Cleaning, home and lifestyle vlogger Georgia has a wealth of wisdom when it comes to space-saving hacks and organisation advice. So it comes as no surprise that her pancakes are just as neat as her home.
Ahead of Pancake Day, Georgia – who goes by the username @ cleaningcorner – took to TikTok with her ‘Pancake Day party trick’, and it doesn’t disappoint.
In the vid, which has clocked up 175.3k views, Georgia can be seen expertly rolling her pancake into a perfect burrito shape, using just a fork.
To achieve the perfect roll, Georgia first tucks the edge of the pancake between the first and second prongs of her fork, before gently twirling into shape. The result looks both tidy and tasty, delighting Georgia’s legion of houseproud fans.
One person wrote: “This is actually so smart. My family does pancakes for dinner because there is no time for breakfast so I’ll definitely be doing this tonight!”
However, another joked, “maybe I like to burn my fingers”, while a third proudly declared, “No because I use my hands like an animal”. Absolutely fair enough.
