What to drink with a sweet pancake?

If you are in a hurry

Loire wines are perfect for their finesse and fruitiness. Try a Vouvray, it is the perfect appellation for sweet and festive matches. To be original and very greedy, the Rosés de la Loire are very much appreciated, as are the Rosés d'Anjou. You may prefer Champagnes, as long as they are raw.

With a chocolate-banana pancake choose Banyuls or Maury du Roussillon wines in red, pinot noir d' Alsace will be the right choice in white. Finally, sweet wines, but not syrupy like Muscat de Rivesaltes or Rasteau will suit.

Chocolate-banana and its wine: the gourmet alternative

A great classic of winter afternoons, the one that makes gourmands salivate and remains a hit in the hearts of the greats... I named the chocolate-banana pancake! With sometimes slivered almonds for the crunchy side, this pancake warms, nourishes and fills the taste buds. Beyond being a taste success, it is a combination of complex tastes, fatty fruit, dried fruit, cocoa bean ... The aromasmes are powerful and work very well together, so you have to be careful when, at adult tasting time, you are looking for a wine to associate it with! You will have to choose among powerful, aromatic and not too syrupy wines so as not to weigh down the sweetness of the pancake. Good news: these wines can be found in red, dry and mellow white.

A dessert full of sweetness to be combined with white wine and bubbles.

To keep the sweetness and sugar of the pancakes in the mouth, it is best to drink a light wine full of freshness, with a good balance. Let's choose sweet or semi-dry wines for an assured greediness, but let's avoid the sweet ones which will be much too sweet!
Sparkling wines are also perfect with sugar pancakes, such as brut champagnes which are not very sweet, or dry sparkling wines.
And to be original, try a fruity rosé wine, like a Muscat, or a sparkling rosé!

The ideal names for sweet pancakes

The wines of the Loire are perfect for their finesse and fruitiness. Try a Vouvray, it is the perfect appellation for sweet and festive matches. To be original and very greedy, the Rosés de la Loire are a good idea, but also the Rosés d'Anjou. You may prefer Champagnes, as long as they are raw. For the chocolate-banana pancakes, if you swear by the red, the very powerful wines of Banyuls, in the Roussillon, are very indicated. Those of the Maury appellation are just as ideal. White wines such as the Pinots noirs d' Alsace will be very well suited. If you prefer a sweeter wine, those of Rasteau or the Muscats de Rivesaltes will make a perfect match.

Pancakes and candlemas, a whole tradition!

Pancakes, we could eat them all year round! On the beach, in winter by the fire... They lend themselves to all seasons because they are so tasty, but the period when we eat the most is the candlemas!
But where does this tradition come from? Candlemas is celebrated 40 days after Christmas. In the Christian tradition, it is the day of the presentation of Jesus in the Temple. But like many religious festivals, it is originally a pagan festival. Candlemas mark the period when the days grow longer. We celebrated the return to light with a candlelight walk and by eating crêpes?!
If at that time pancakes were synonymous with the sun disk, and thus the return to light, they are signs of delicacies for us today! For young and old alike...
