The ultimate pancake recipe for Pancake TuesdayFebruary 9, 2016
It’s Shrove, or Pancake Tuesday today and it’s also a great excuse to enjoy our favourite flour free pancake recipe.
Traditionally, Pancake Tuesday is for many Christians the final day of indulgence before the fasting of Lent begins in preparation for Easter. In a more secular context, many Aussies give up alcohol or sugar in February for charity. The 5:2 diet, which promotes reduced calorie intake on two days a week, is recommend by famous chefs and food bloggers.
It seems that while traditions made change throughout history, the sense of balance, of feast and famine, is one that resonates with people. We seem to innately crave both the indulgent and the humble. Luckily, these pancakes are a bit of both.
