Pancake Tuesday

Tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday, also called Pancake Tuesday in many places (and more commonly known as Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday around the world).  When I was growing up, we would eat pancakes as part of the tradition. If you don’t have time for a pancake breakfast, why not have ‘breakfast for dinner’, with pancakes as the main event?  Pair them with a side of bacon, ham or sausage for a hearty meal.

These pancakes are a little different than thin ‘flapjack’ style pancakes.  They are quite thick but mixing beaten egg whites into the batter makes their texture fluffy and light.  Serve with blueberry sauce (made with frozen blueberries) or maple syrup.
