What does your pancake topping say about you?

Posted on February 23, 2022

You batter believe it…it’s Pancake Day next week, with Shrove Tuesday landing on the 1st of March this year!


Shrove Tuesday, or so-called Pancake Day, is the traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Traditionally during Lent, Christians would give up rich, tasty foods such as butter, eggs, sugar and fats, for 46 days leading up to Easter.Leaving Shrove Tuesday as the last day to indulge in them – and what better way to enjoy butter, eggs, sugar and fat but with a delicious pancake!


Today, people continue to whip and flip these delicious treats on Shrove Tuesday —and they add all kinds of tasty toppings, too. But what’s your topping of choice, and what does it say about you?


Here at Castle Marina, we reckon that we can tell a lot about a person’s personality by their taste in pancakes. Before you decide on your topping…check which one of these best fits you – and then head over to HomeSense for all the best frying pans, skillets, knife sets, and everything you’ll need to whip up the perfect pancakes!



Lemon and Sugar

You’re a true classic- no crazy concoctions for you, just a sprinkle of bitter & sweet! You’re a reliable, likeable and friendly character, who is resistant to change. You have zero time for the lavish, and you aren’t afraid to show it!





You’re simply a go hard or go home kind of person, if you’re going to whisk up pancakes, you’re going to do it right – loathing them with a tub of Nutella. You’re a proud chocaholic, who’s ALWAYS up for a bit of fun – a true party animal, who doesn’t take life too seriously. You just love life nutty!





You are just so sweet - and often irresistible. You’re a true grafter who loves a great challenge and is gifted with steady hands.  You’re a warm, passionate and affectionate character, and once you love something, you find it hard to let go.





Fresh and juicy! A vibrant and colourful character who’s a real chatterbox. Your choice of fruit evokes happiness, just like your attitude to life. Although you’re a true creature of habit who isn’t a fan of taking risks, you’re wise and responsible attributes are greatly valued as people often come to you for advice.



Ice Cream & The Works


You’re the master of creativity, Ice cream, sprinkles, sauce…anything goes!  You simply don’t care if it isn’t for everyone, because you create your own rules. No matter how old you are, you’ll always be a child at heart. You’re super chilled and spontaneous, and live life to the max.




Sizzle the bacon! You’re a real rebel and you love it. You don’t like repetitiveness, instead you like to mix things up. You’re a very open-minded and adventurous individual who’s happy taking risks. You aren’t a crowd follower, instead you’re a true trend setter, so own it!



Now tell us, which topping will you be having on your pancakes this year?


We’d love to know!
