Shrove Tuesday, more commonly referred to as Pancake Day, is the traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday.
Lent was traditionally a time of fasting. Shrove Tuesday was the day that Anglo-Saxon Christians went to confession to be absolved from their sins and a bell would be rung to call people to confession.
This came to be called the ‘Pancake Bell’ and is still rung today.
It was also the last chance to use up eggs and fats before embarking on the Lenten fast. Pancakes were the perfect way of using up these ingredients!
You can make a simple pancake batter from plain flour, milk, and eggs.
You have the option to add baking powder, salt and sugar to your dry mix, and some butter or oil to your wet mix. We offer a selection of ready-made American style pancakes as well as well-known toppings and ingredients.
