VIDEO: Pancake Tuesday

pancakes1Known as ‘Pancake Tuesday’ in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, Shrove Tuesday is the first day of lent where pancakes are made and eaten during the day. Throughout schools and neighbourhoods, pancake flipping competitions are organised on this day. The reason why pancakes are eaten is because rich foods such as eggs, milk and sugar cannot be consumed during the fasting period linked to this old tradition. The video below shows how to make the perfect pancake:
