Call it Pancake Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday.

Its the day when tradation prepared us for the season of Lent by using up the fat, sugar and flour in the pantry before the 40 days abstanance, those were the days before we had crepes, crumpets or American pancakes…

Its the day we loved as children, the day all Irish Mammy’s hated as they would be stood at the cooker for hours making pancakes for tea..

Enjoy your pancakes today what ever you call them and share with us your favourite topping… Ours is butter, sugar and lemon juice.
