Pancake Day

Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day in Britain is a great excuse for enjoying some pancakes.

In many places in Britain, there are pancake tossing competitions on Pancake Day. The person who cooks and tosses the most pancakes wins.



1 cup self-raising flour
1 egg
1 cup of milk


1. Mix all the ingredients in a blender.

2. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Pour the batter onto the pan. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

3. TRY tossing the pancake but BE CAREFUL not to glue it to the ceiling.

One of the many great things about pancakes is that they provide a delicious breakfast as well as a yummy mid-afternoon snack if you feel like eating something sweet. There are many ways of serving pancakes:

The traditional British manner with freshly squeezed  lemon juice and sugar.

Simple with sugar and cinnamon

A popular choice with melted chocolate

A Madeira favourite with sugarcane honey

The famous Canadian and American Maple Syrup

The healthiest choice: fruit
