Man Disgusts Twitter With Tuna-Filled Pancake

Whether you are on team sweet or savoury when it comes to Pancake Day, here's something we can probably all agree on - tuna isn't exactly our number one topping.

One man has divided the internet after revealing that he fills his pancakes with a tin of tuna... for breakfast.

Sports commentator Ian Abrahams shared a picture of the tuna-filled pancake on Twitter yesterday, along with the caption: "Pancake Day tomorrow, can't wait for my usual breakfast of Pancakes with Tuna."

"Delicious," Ian concluded, adding a smiley face emoji to the end of his divisive post.

His 240,000 Twitter followers recoiled in disgust as the image was shared, urging Ian to chuck it in the bin immediately.

"Yeah alright I like tuna but I wouldn't take it this far, a panini or a salad is quite sufficient for me," declared one person on the social media platform.

And somebody else echoed: "That's a home made bushtucker trial!"

"That looks awful! Wouldn't feed it the dog!" tweeted another of the sports commentator's Twitter followers.

While a fourth commented: "Please tell me you are joking?"

We'll stick to the usual lemon and sugar topping, thanks.

If you want to ensure you make the fluffiest pancakes possible for all the tasty fillings today, this one with 10,000 five star reviews just might be the answer.

The Old Fashioned Pancakes was shared on All Recipes UK and Ireland by Dakota Kelly, who wrote: "This is a great recipe that I found in my Gran's recipe book. Judging from the weathered look of this recipe card, this was a family favourite."

Combine 200g of flour with one or two teaspoons of baking powder, one teaspoon of salt, one tablespoon of caster sugar, 300ml of milk, one egg and 50g of melted butter.

The recipe explains: "In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth."

After that, Dakota says: "Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the pan, using approximately four tablespoons (60ml) for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot."

Et voila! Perfect pancakes. Maybe don't put tuna in them, though.
