Shrove Tuesday quickly became known as a Pancake Day as, traditionally, the eggs and fats that weren’t eaten during Lent – 40 days of fasting in the Christian calendar – were perfect base ingredients for pancakes. Here we provide a quick and easy recipe to make pancakes from scratch.
Okay, so you’ve got your eggs, milk, flour and butter ready for Tuesday, you’ve conjured up your old checked tablecloth and subscribed to the annual pancake race in Maidenhead or Olney. But why not do things a little bit differently this Pancake Day and treat your guests to some pancakes they’ve surely never seen or tasted before!?
