Instead of a traditional pancake topping, such as sugar and lemon, the UK's favourite topping is sausage and maple syrup, followed by bacon in second place and chocolate coming in third.

This savoury revelation is polls apart from last year’s data collated by Uber Eats, which revealed strawberries and whipped cream as the nation’s favourite, followed by banana and Nutella.

But, the data also reveals the nation’s sweet tooth, with three out of five people choosing sweet toppings over savoury.
