egg , milk, flour, pinch of salt mix it all together so you get about a pint of soupy batter, actual proportions don't matter.

Lemon juice, golden syrup and sugar please

A bit ago I had some colossal Dutch pancakes with cheese and tomato in. They were ace. I think I like savoury fillings better than sweet. Saying that, I made some pancakes for Christmas Day breakfast the other year, with bananas, brown sugar, cinnamon and madeira. Vey nice.

Sounds like a scary new world when pizza overlaps with pancake

Ooh, me too. Cheese and ham pancakes are lovely. Don't pancakes have basically the same ingredients as Yorkshire puddings? There should be a Yorkshire pudding day.

Heh, I had my first Yorkshire pudding of the year yesterday. What an excellent coincidence.

When we were little, if we ate all our Sunday dinner, we were allowed to have the extra Yorkshire puddings afterwards with golden syrup or jam. Thereby providing PROOF that Yorkshire puddings and pancakes are two sides of the same floury, eggy and milky coin.

How did you manage to have extra yorkshire puddings left over, I would have scoffed them with the main course.

I didn't know about Pancake Day until I saw a Woolworths-ad. I wasn't even sure whether it was a Woolworths-invention or not, until I saw this thread where people talk about Pancake Day, without saying they're talking about Pancake Day.

I like them a lot too. The town where I used to live had two of the best Pancake Restaurants in the world.

It's because Pancake Day is really called Starve Tuesday because it's the last day before Stole, when you're supposed to not eat croutons and flour for 40 days and 40 nights so you use them all up beforehand by making Yorkshire puddings. The next day is Trash Wednesday, when you take your mind off your hunger by watching Celebrity Brother Swap Idol Island Maria on Channel 4.

Or something.

To be honest, I had never heard of Starve Tuesday either. Though I can see why that name wouldn't really have helped boost the sales of Woolworth's frying pans.

It's Shrove Tuesday really; I'm just being daft. I don't think it's particularly international, so there's no reason why anyone should've heard of it beyond Southend-on-Sea.

Proof that you don't listen to me when I talk, #765...

As I have told you before, said Tuesday is the beginning of Lent here in this funny country. I think the idea is that you make pancakes to use up the things you will not be eating for forty days and forty nights.

In Greece the beginning of Lent is a Monday -and a holiday- and we fly kites instead. Which makes less sense but is more fun, really. We even used to make our own kites.

The best thing would clearly be if you made pancakes but flew them like kites.

Yay! I loved flying a kite on Clean Monday. The weather is usually lovely as well on that day because it often overlaps with the halcyon days (a break of lovely warm weather Greece gets in February).

There is also a special Clean Monday bread called lagana which is dead nice.
