How do you like your pancakes?

Pancake Day has been celebrated for centuries.

Another name for this day is Shrove Tuesday, which always falls on the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of the Christian festival of Lent. As this is a 40 day period of fasting, it was tradition to use up any leftover food before Lent began – hence the tradition of eating pancakes, as this used up any leftover milk, eggs and flour.

We like to put different fillings in our modern day pancakes.

What are your favourite fillings – share these with everyone so that they can try them at home.
