Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday dates back several centuries to when the English prepped for fasting during Lent. Strict rules prohibited the eating of all dairy products during Lent, so pancakes were made to use up the supply of eggs, milk, butter and other dairy products.
Pancake Day is traditionally celebrated in London with pancake races. Runners have a frying pan and have to toss the pancake, similar to a thin flat crepe, in the air as they run! The events take place in various locations.
If you don’t fancy running, you can indulge in eating a tasty pancake or two. The traditional topping is sugar & lemon or if you’re really up for a treat try chocolate spread!!!
