Have you remembered Pancake Day? It’s on Tuesday 21st Feb this year, which is next Tuesday. I thought I would share a pancake recipe with so that you had some time to go shopping for the ingredients. I know if I forget my son will never let me hear the end of it, so I shall be stocking up with the essential ingredients this weekend.
Pancake day is really Shrove Tuesday. It is the day before the start of Lent, which is a Christian festival leading up to Easter. We eat pancakes on this day because during Lent it is traditional to abstain from certain foods and pancakes contain fat, butter and eggs which are forbidden. Making pancakes is also a good way to use up these ingredients before Lent starts.
The recipe I use here is a scotch pancake recipe, it makes smaller pancakes than the more traditional ones but I find these much easier to make. They are also very tasty.
How you serve them is entirely up to you. I served them for breakfast with maple syrup. They are also delicious with butter and jam. This is the finished result.
