Join in the tradition of making flavoursome varieties of Pancakes like Red Velvet, Classic Velvet, Chocolate Velvet and Japanese Velvet Pancakes to mark the occasion of Shrove Tuesday, which is the traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Learn how to make the perfect thin, flat pancakes, made of batter and fried in a frying pan topped with Golden syrup or lemon juice and caster sugar.
Lent is 40 days traditional fasting period for Christian till Easter and on Shrove Tuesday, Christians went to confession and were “shriven” (absolved from their sins). A bell would be rung to call people to confession. This came to be called the “Pancake Bell” and is still rung today.
Shrove Tuesday, which falls on February 25th this year will be the last opportunity to use up eggs and fats before embarking on the Lenten fast and pancakes are the perfect way of using up these ingredients.
