It's Pancake Day!
Not that I'm into the fasting, but I'll certainly join in the cooking. I love flipping pancakes, though I have been known to set them on fire...

How do you eat yours?

I have some maple syrup left over from baking experiments, so that's first order of the day! If that runs out (and it may well, we're having a few visitors) I'm partial to the traditional lemon and sugar.

I have a Pancake Breakfast every sunday as do most Americans.

Can some one tell me what exactly is Pancake day? I know ya Brits have some odd Holidays, but why Pancake day and why always on a Tuesday each year?

Butter and sugar for me. My friend likes jam.

I love pancakes. Don't eat them very often but that just makes Pancake Day even better

And I almost typed "batter" instead of "better" there XD

I didn't know there was Pancake Day! :O

I like crepes better >_<. With nutella, honey and/or cinnamon!
But pancakes are alwyas welcome.

@ Amy-Lou: lol, I have been done that too

@ Nadesico:
In general in these last days there are different celebrations all over the world, like carnivals in Brasil, Peru and Germany. It's a chrisitan thingy and people party like crazy before the Lent begins. (Ok, i wikied it, but i did know about the carnivals).

...The the very first result on that link is Wikipedia with a full explanation.
Hint: If it mentions Shrove Tuesday, you're on to a winner.

Oooh yeah hanagata I love cinamon pancakes!

My understanding of why we ended up making pancakes is because people tried to use up the household ingredients that could lead them into temptation during Lent. As it happened, many of those things - butter, sugar, flour - could be used to make pancakes, so it was killing a whole load of birds with one stone.

I think it's also more specific to Catholicism than it is to Christianity as a whole. Certainly my Protestant family never cared much about the whole Lent thing, and it wasn't till I started going to a mixed college near the Irish Republican border that I saw anyone doing the Ash Wednesday thing the day after.

Ooh I shall be having some with golden syrup and some with strawberries. : O
Unfortunately I have to lay off sugar lately so I can't have them like I normally do, a pile of sugar that'l probably have some pancake under it if you look hard enough. XD


24 Feb 2009 - 22:3211100
Pancakey goodness. Me and my friends made some (or rather, they made some, I watched, I'm not very good at cooking), and then we watched Kuroshitsuji. <3 What a fantastic day.

I like lemon and sugar. That's always been my favourite. Sometimes with a bit of butter too.

Do we have any mix? Jade told me we need 1 cup of flour, 1/2-2 Cups of Milk and 1 Egg! Should Make Maybe 6? Get a big spoon, pour into pan and when it thickens, FLIP! Altho we'll need to oil the pan so it doesn't stick... and stock up on muchos butter and sugar!!

Ive never actually made pancakes before... Who usually prefers making the mix and who prefers buying it??

Omg, you should have left it as 'batter'! I love puns. I also love pancakes with lemon! I cannot flip pancakes however, I'm a lousy cook when it comes to sweet foods. ):

Thank you so much for that link! I love learning about other cultures, and especially seeing that kind of thing. I'd love to go to a carnival of that type one day. In particular, I wish I had a giant cricket float thing haha! But... giant cricket float or pancakes, which is better!? XD *Harry Hill moment*
