Tasked with making pancakes in four different categories – basic, sweet, savoury and speciality – dishes served in addition to traditional sugar and lemon pancakes included spicy pork and rice, beefburger with lettuce, chicken and sausage, bacon and egg!

Among those on the judging panel was Banbury Guardian editor Jason Gibbins, who said: “We were served an amazing variety of pancakes that showed both great cooking skills and, in some cases, wonderful imagination!

“All the pancakes, however, were a delight to taste and it was an honour to be invited to join such a fun event.”
