INTRODUCTION I decided many years ago that pancakes are not just for pancake day! I love traditional British pancakes with lemon and sugar, but when staying with a friend in the US I was introduced to American pancakes, a much thicker and more substantial version of the foodstuff I grew up with. On coming back to the UK I discovered that these American pancakes were very similar to Scotch pancakes, and before I learned to make them for myself these Sainsbury's Basic Pancakes were a staple of my snack stash. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Sainsbury's Basics pancakes come packaged in transparent cellophane and a cardboard backing sleeve ... Read the complete review

I have been on the quest for summer breakfasts lately and have tried other brands of scotch pancakes and really enjoyed them, so I thought I would try sainsburys own version and see if they are any good. The packet I got were 29p for 6 pancakes. The packaging is very plain compared to other brands, but that doesn't matter too much to me. On the packet it says that each pancake is 61 calories, which is 3.1% of the RDA, which I didn't think was too bad, but I'm not really a calorie counter so I'm not entirely sure if that is good or not. The main thing I noticed about these pancakes as soon as I got them out of the packet was ... Read the complete review

Sainsbury's Basics Pancakes. I love pancakes especially home made ones, but occassionally i havnt got the time or the effort to make them so usually buy them, and Sainsbury's Basics offer this little packet of six pancakes for a mere 35p, but thats not all mine where reduced for 24p and thats a real bargain, i guess. The Package ********** They dont have a luxury package, as because they are a one of the Basics range of products and they come in a clear plastic easy to tear open package, with a thin white carboard piece at the bottom, and the pancakes are stacked three high on each side of the carboard ...

I actually bought a pack of the pancakes when they were in the reduced section the other day, bringing them to a very nice 23p - full price is around the 36p, I believe. I really like pancakes for a simple treat, but given that I tend to wolf them down in a couple of sittings, and they're not very filling, I don't want to spend too much money on them. Having said that, pancakes strike me as the sort of food that might taste bad done on the cheap - like cheap bread, stodgy and with an aftertaste. But you can't argue with the reduced section, so buy the pancakes I did. First thing first - the packaging. These are part of the basics range, so a very simple, ... Read the complete review

After having the Syrup and Raisin pancakes the other week, I decided to buy some more as I really liked those ones. I decided to give the Sainsburys Basics plain Scotch Pancakes a try as they are really cheap for 6 pancakes. --- Packaging --- The pancakes come in a clear plastic wrapper that has a large white label on the front. As they are part of the Basics range, the label has orange parts to match the rest of the range. This is the only label on the pack and so it contains everything about the pancakes on it. The pack is easy to spot on the shelves due the white and orange colour scheme and it's size. Each pack measures 24cm x 12cm in size ... Read the complete review
