It’s Shrove Tuesday on 4th March, the day we all look forward to for our annual pancake feast and afterwards declare that we should eat pancakes more often. We rarely do of course, so this classic recipe is a way to ensure you make the most of your annual treat.
Berry season is long gone, but this sauce is a great opportunity to use up any frozen gluts from last year.
Makes about 6 pancakes, depending on the size of your pan
Photo competition winners
Last year we set an autumn photo competition and we had a fantastic response. You can see a lot of the entries on our Pinterest page.
We had a fun time deciding on the winners and there are some fantastic photos. Here are the winners.
