Recipe: Matcha Cream Pancakes | Anchor Cream

If you’re an aspiring chef with dreams of an immaculate kitchen or you simply just love food like we do, the launch of a new premium cream range can be pretty exciting.

The new Anchor Cream range is made with 100% Australian dairy and is designed with foodies and cooks in mind; featuring innovative markers on the side of the bottle (as seen on butter packaging), the markers ensure precise pouring and easy measurement.

The new Anchor Cream range contains Pure, Thickened and Light Thickened Cream to suit every culinary occasion. Whip, cook or pour and enjoy the taste of beautiful cream.

For added convenience, screw top lids allow for safe storage in the fridge and will eliminate those messy drips and leaks (we’ve all experienced the nasty accident of knocking over an old container of cream that you’d forgotten about – and boy does it smell!). Anchor Cream’s bottles are also unique in size, with exact one (250mL) and two cup (500mL) size products to make following a recipe hassle free.

We absolutely loved putting the new Anchor Cream to the test with Italian style Cream Pancakes...

We loved the beautiful and luxurious cream - a testament to being made using the best Australian Dairy. It was also really convenient and easy to be able to measure everything to perfection. We thoroughly appreciated the unique one and two cup size bottles with measurement markers which ensured precise pouring and the screw top lids which avoided messy drips and leaks.
