This week on the blog there was some great brand synergy going on when both Lactofree and Clarks Maple Syrup wrote to me asking to take part in pancake day related fun.  We love pancakes, although I admit I hate the mess, and having been chosen to be a Lactofree Ambassadairy for 2014 I was ready to take up the challenge of making delicious dairy free pancakes for me.  The team at Clarks Maple syrup set us the dilemma of #MaplevLemon in terms of pancake toppings and sent us a fantastic goodie box with lemons, sugar and of course a large bottle of Clarks Maple syrup.
