Shrove Tuesday is something I always look forward too because we get to have pancakes. The reason for eating the pancakes is because it is the day before Ash Wednesday in the Christian faith, which is the day commencing the start of lent. Therefore it is seen as a day of self indulgence and having treats before lent.
The easiest pancake recipe to follow for 6 medium pancakes:
Use a mug as a way of measuring the ingredients, all you need is:
-1 Mug of plain flour
-1 Mug of milk
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix, then use a small amount for each pancake.
Of course if you would like more than 6 pancakes, double or even triple the amount of ingredients!
