People are putting gravy on their pancakes – and the internet is divided over it

People on Twitter have been sharing their favourite pancake toppings for Shrove Tuesday, and some of them are very controversial

When it comes to Pancake Day, everyone has their own personal favourite way to enjoy the treat.

Some like delicate crepes, others prefer a thick, fluffy stack of American pancakes.

Some love to drown their plate with syrup, or smother it in Nutella, while others merely sprinkle with sugar and dribble lemon juice over the top.

But it seems there’s one other thing people really enjoy eating with their pancakes – and the internet is rather divided over the bizarre topping.

According to Twitter a lot of people like to pour gravy over their pancakes.

Yes, you read that right. Gravy.

It seems to be a common occurrence up north, with many people comparing pancakes to Yorkshire puddings, as they’re made with the same type of batter.

One person said: “I didn’t realise pancakes and gravy was such a ‘weird’ thing until I moved from Sheffield to Manchester when I was 18. Lived my whole life thinking that everyone had them on pancake day!”

Another tweeted: “Can’t beat pancakes with gravy and Henderon’s relish, absolute fave.”

A third wrote: “Gravy on pancakes is mega, ur probs a southern wrong un if you disagree.”

While dozens proclaimed their love of the combo, calling it “yummy”, there were of course those who were absolutely revolted by the idea.

You’re a danger to society if you have gravy on a pancake. Have a word with yourself,” posted a different user.

Another commented: “Good morning everyone except people who have gravy on their pancakes.”

A user name Elek added: “OMG! Please tell me you’re joking? I love gravy but not on a pancake though.”

And this isn’t the first pancake topping to cause controversy on the internet today.

Sport commentator Ian Abrahams, known as Moose, shared a photo of his preferred pancake filling on Twitter earlier today, and people were shocked to discover that it was tuna.

It’s fair to say people were less than impressed with this idea, with many branding it “disgusting”.
