Shrove Tuesday aka Pancake Day

Happy Pancake Day everyone! For those of you who do not know what Shrove Tuesday is it the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, otherwise referred to as Mardi Gras in French. In the UK this day is also called Pancake day because of the tradition of making pancakes. Unlike American pancakes the pancakes made in the UK closely resemble crepes, to all my English friends I know thy aren’t crepes but I need to translate for everyone else. The pancakes are traditionally eaten sprinkled with sugar and lemon but some prefer strawberry jam. The recipe is an authentic English recipe and was given to me by Gemma. I hope you enjoy!
