Shrove Tuesday may be my second favourite holiday, after Christmas of course. I love, love pancakes and the fact that they just use up store cupboard ingredients is the best part. I don't just have them on Pancake Day, in fact it's one of my Birthday traditions that someone cooks me pancakes for my breakfast, normally served with Ben and Jerry's ice cream - it is only once a year after all!
There are so many different recipes for pancakes; but this one is my Mum's and in truth probably my Grandma's and Great Nana's too. It's beyond easy. We make ours up a few hours before, last night in fact so that it can rest and was ready for breakfast pancakes - with lemon and sugar of course!
This is in old school metric, it's that old! It's also for the British style of pancakes, the American ones are yummy; but just aren't the same.
I've finished my first novel while enjoying copious amounts of chocolate and cake.
