Pancakes for Shrove Tuesday

Shrove Tuesday PancakesFor the Christian church Shrove Tuesday is a day of celebration, the last chance to feast before the austerity of the 40 days of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.

Traditionally, all the foods that are forbidden during Lent meat, eggs, fat and milk are eaten up on Shrove Tuesday. This recipe follows those rules, but you can enjoy it any time you like!

These pancakes would make for a delicious dinner on Shrove Tuesday, or any day.

These Shrove Tuesday pancakes fit this traditional English children's rhyme...

A-shrovin', a-shrovin',
I be come a-shrovin',
A piece of bread, a piece of cheese,
A bit of your fat bacon...
