We are available to hire for weddings, engagements, birthdays, christenings, retirements, garden parties, work parties, any occasion you can think of. Our pancakes are the perfect catering solution, you choose the fillings to suit your taste and your guests and the pancake is freshly made and filled in front of them.
We freshly prepare the most incredible pancakes from the freshest ingredients and we have the most fun doing it. We buy local produce, direct from farmers and weave a little bit of magic into everything we do.
Founded and based in Birmingham, Platinum Pancakes covers a wide area. Most of our work is concentrated around the Midlands, attending farmers’ markets, street food events private and corporate parties and family friendly festivals. Have pancakes, will travel.
We go to extreme lengths to find ingredients of the highest provenance and they are prepared, with flair, by chefs with over 20 years professional cooking experience. The most important thing to us is YOU, our customer. Your experience with Platinum Pancakes will be delightful and memorable.
At Platinum Pancakes we put a lot of effort into finding the finest local ingredients. Buying local makes good economic sense, buying the best, locally, makes good food too. We buy, trade and barter for seasonal fruit and never serve strawberries in December. The best stuff on the menu is homemade but we are also proud to serve old favourites, like Nutella.
We use local organically grown wheat. Our flour is stoneground in small batches at an ancient watermill, that is listed in the Doomsday Book! The wheel is only turned with water power and the custodians of this historic mill insist upon continuing their craft as it has been done for a thousand years. “It’s like cooking with clouds”
Local, Free Range and straight from the hens, our eggs are delivered weekly, direct from the farm. The Hens have the freedom to roam in the woods, scratch in the dirt or have a duvet day. It’s up to them. Each egg is unique as a result, different sizes, different patterns, but they are all fresh and delicious.
Whole and super fresh, we collect our milk direct from a traditional local dairy, often just an hour after milking! The Cows are grass fed all year round, the milk is rich and creamy, gently pasteurised and never skimmed. Good animal welfare is clearly a focus. We are welcomed into every part of the farm and dairy, it's great to see how much the farmer loves his cows and “Stanley” their colossus bull.
Why not mix and match toppings to suit you
How would you like to join us and become a licensed flipper? You’ll get a chance to start and grow your very own business, learn new skills and find work/life balance being the master of your own calendar. We have already had two successful licensees and are always looking for the next street food star to help build our exposure. There are no large upfront fees. We provide all of the equipment and training you need. Ongoing mentoring and business development assistance is provided.
