In the Unique Home Living HQ today we are celebrating Shrove Tuesday also known as Pancake day.
The tradition of giving up foods that contain fat like butter and eggs are forbidden during Lent which lasts for 40 days, therefore people usually use up all the things they are not allow during this period and mix up plenty of pancake mix, this is why people eat Pancakes on this day.
Always getting excited on days where we can over indulge ourselves with any form of sweets, chocolate, cakes or dessert. We are happy to share our Pancake Day Galore with you all.
We took out our Pancake day must have tools and got cracking with the mixture
Using the ingredients
- 100g plain flour
- Pinch of Salt
- 1 large egg
- 300ml milk
- Melted butter, for frying
Using our Heart shaped tools for the shape and Pancake Pen to even out the mixture for perfection, we decorated our first pancakes with some forest friuts and strawberries with a sprinkle of icing sugar for last touches.We also tried the Crepe style chocolate and strawberry pancakes.
Trying out different pancake toppings we were quick to have a pancake overdose!
What were your favourite toppings on Pancake Day?
Using our left over pancake mixtures we also had a lovely savoury pancake egg and bacon breakfast wrap!
A food lover can not disagree Pancake Day is one of the favourite days of the year.
