Pancake Day

Pancake Day

Shrove Tuesday used to be when cupboards were cleared of the fine things and fripperies to make way for the abstinence of Lent. The tradition of pancakes evolved from the need to use up the last stocks of milk, butter and eggs and while there's no need now to forego such basics, pancakes are simply made and incredibly versatile to serve. Go quick with lemon and icing sugar, savoury with bacon and maple syrup or thoroughly decadent with Grand Marnier scented chocolate sauce - the decision is yours.
