Pancake Tuesday is one of the highlights of the culinary year and we asked you to tell us what your favourite style is.

Parents in Limerick will be forced to stand over frying pans for hours as their children turn into pancake guzzling machines.

Sweet or savoury; thin or American style....the debate rages on, but Limerick Leader readers have answered in their droves - and the purists have spoken.

The traditional lemon and sugar was a clear winner with 47% of the vote, miles ahead of those Nutella lovers in second place.

Fresh fruit and cream was a distant third, with not much love for the frankly bizarre combination of pancakes, caviar and eggs benedict.

Thanks for voting!
