It’s Pancakes again today. Little over a week ago I tried the new Birds Eye Classic Pancakes and today it is the turn of Birds Eye Chocolate Chip Pancakes, because surely everything is better with a little bit of chocolate in!

Bakewell Tarts are a humble classic that tick quite a few of the afternoon snack criteria. Traditionally with a jammy layer, frangipane and iced topping encased in a pastry outer, Asda have given the traditional a twist and made Lemon Bakewells and Toffee Bakewells. Being the intrigued beaver that I am and seeing if these really can be an alternative to the traditional Bakewell Tart, for £1 a pop I decided to take the plunge and give these a whirl.  Asda Lemon Bakewells Triple layered with lemon flavoured curd, citrus sponge and lemon fondant I love the look of these, they…
