Punorama results

15:01 UK time, Wednesday, 21 February 2007

It's time for the winning entries in Punorama.

As ever, we gave you a story and you sent us punning headlines.

Yesterday was Shrove Tuesday so it's a story about what could be the most expensive pancake ever, on sale for one day only. Topped with Dom Perignon champagne and berries flambéed in vintage brandy, the £95 pancake is served alongside amaretto ice cream with Madagascan vanilla pods.

Our taste buds tingled to Pudding on the Ritz (Gareth Jones, Isle of Anglesey), The Greatest Crepe (Helene Parry), Crêpes of Worth (S Murray) and Crepe Expectations (Simon Rooke).

And Shrover-indulgence (Craig Wall), Treasure Shrove (Kevin, Glasgow) and Shriven to Confection (Michael Sargnet) whet the appetite nicely, before moving on to a taster menu comprised of So dear; what can the batter be? (Brian Ritchie), Batter'll do nicely (Nigel Macarthur), Flash in the pancake (Brett Mitchell, Tim Miller, Brian Gunn) and Panned gold (Sarah, Trieste).

And then, to the accompaniment of brandy and cigars in the drawing room, we savoured A batter class of pudding (Kate Lilley) and Daylight snobbery (Christophe).

Mmm-MMM! Thanks to all who entered.
