Gino’s Gelato is celebrating Pancake Tuesday by giving away free traditional crêpes to all customers until 12pm.
The gelato experts offer an extensive range of crêpes from the conventional to the extraordinary.
Favourites include Gino’s Chocolate Oreo Crêpe – Crushed Oreos, white chocolate sauce, fresh cream and Gino’s melted Oreo Variegato.
Gino’s Special – Nutella, sliced banana and chopped strawberries and the Traditional – topped with lemon, butter and sugar – are also popular.
The difference between pancakes and crêpes?
The main difference is that pancake batter has a raising agent in it, such as baking powder or baking soda, and crêpe batter doesn’t.
This means that pancakes are thicker and fluffy while crêpes are thin and flat.
Generally, pancakes are associated with being ‘American-style’ while crêpes are the European take on the breakfast favourite.
Gino’s Gelato has 17 locations nationwide including Galway, Waterford, Cork and Newbridge as well as 11 stores across Dublin.
