Shrove Tuesday

February 16, 2021

Today is Pancake Day!

Did you know this moveable festival is determined by Easter, and was actually known as Shrove Tuesday!

Shrove Tuesday is a traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Which always falls 47 days before Easter Sunday.

It was the last opportunity to use up all the eggs and fats before embarking on the Lenten fast, and pancakes were the perfect way of using up these ingredients.
