If pancake day isn't enough of an excuse to temporarily throw you off a diet then I don't know what is.
So, yeah.. I love to eat healthily; but what is life without a little treat now and then?
In total, Brits use an unbelievable 52 million eggs on Pancake Day.
That’s 22 million more than any other day.
The most flips anyone has ever done with a pancake is 349 flips in two minutes.
Pancake day (Shrove Tuesday) is this Tuesday 9th February, I happened to mention that pancake day was coming up to my college friends last week and they almost exploded with excitement. I was actually shocked by the sudden hysteria I had caused by merely mentioning this day.
I love the fun of Pancake day, how everyone crowds around (safely) in the kitchen, taking turns to prove who is the finest flipper. Choosing your fave toppings and most likely over indulging. I've found out that the pan you use can make a world of difference too, I've made some complete messes in the past however my Pyrex Attraction Non-Stick Frying Pan came in super handy for our early pancakes.. It is my go to pan for omelettes too. If you're usually a flipping loser - take note, it's time to upgrade your pan for a flawless pancake and minimal clean up!
I smothered mine in Nutella then rolled up the chocolatey goodness, the warmth from the pancake perfectly melted it into heaven. I usually have lemon and sugar but this was a perfect and scrumptious choice.
I'd love to know how you like to enjoy your pancakes? Sweet or savoury?
