Did you know, that pancakes were traditionally eaten on Shrove Tuesday? This was a day of feasting and partying before the beginning of Lent. Pancakes were a good way to use up stores of about-to-be-forbidden perishables like eggs, milk, and butter. 

There is no doubt that pancakes are a great breakfast treat or snack. You can top it with fresh fruit for more of a breakfast option. Or drizzle in chocolate for a treat. You can also add some fruit such as blueberries into your pancake batter for an alternative taste. The BBC’s recipe for fluffy pancakes which could be applied to the above recipe says: 

“For extra-fluffy pancakes substitute self-raising flour for plain flour and still use the baking powder. Serve the pancakes with fresh strawberries and good vanilla ice cream. Use half buckwheat flour and half plain flour and serve with maple syrup and bacon. You can also add one teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the buckwheat batter and serve with caramelised apple slices and thick double cream”
