A bit of history on Pancake Day

Pancake Day, otherwise known as Shrove Tuesday is traditionally known as the day of feasting before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday; Shrove Tuesday was the last opportunity for Anglo-Saxon Christians to use up eggs, fat and sugar before the Lenten fast began and coincidently, the pancake recipe is the perfect way to use up all those ingredients; and so, the tasty tradition was born.
