Every Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day the world goes flipping crazy for crêpes and pancakes. Supermarket shelves will be groaning with pancake mixes, lemons and eggs. Across the country there's a whole host of pancake races and challenges to see who can make, eat, toss and run with the most pancakes.
So, how to make the most of the day? The joys of a freshly-flipped pancake shouldn’t be confined to a token gesture – breakfast, lunch or dinner; main, dessert or snack – the adaptable pancake can be sweet or savoury, a decadent treat or a meal in its own right.
