Pancake Day aka Shrove Tuesday

Yesterday was Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, and Pancake Day here in the UK.  Basically, on this day each year, pancakes are traditionally eaten.

So Dan and I celebrated Pancake Day by having traditional English pancakes for dinner.  English pancakes are different than the thick American pancakes, they’re more like crepes.  Here’s the recipe Dan and I used if anyone back in the states wants to try some English pancakes 🙂

Sift 110 grams of flour.

Beat in two eggs and two tablespoons of melted butter.

Add 300 mil of milk.

(We also added in a teaspoon of vanilla).

The batter should be very thin, pour some batter in a hot pan and move it around to cover the bottom of the pan.  It should only take about 30 seconds to cook each side.

The most important part is how you serve the pancakes, no maple syrup and butter here!  Sprinkle them with granulated sugar and lemon juice.

I tried to get an action shot of Dan flipping pancakes by having him flip the same pancake over and over, but all I got were a lot of blurry pictures and a destroyed pancake.
