Pancake Day!

Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, is the first day of Lent (the Christian observance of the liturgical year from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday) and is widely observed in the English speaking countries, especially Ireland, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, the United States and Canada. In most traditions, the day is known for eating pancake before the commencement of Lent. Pancake are eaten as they are made out of the main foods available, sugar, fat, flour and eggs, whose consumption was traditionally restricted during the ritual fasting associated with Lent.

This year, my housemates and I took the opportunity to celebrate the Pancake Day for the sake of celebration and an excuse for having pancakes rather than for any religious reasons.
Our pancake recipe comprises of:

1.       Pancake Mix
2.       3 eggs
3.       2 teaspoons of Vanilla essence
4.       Milk
5.       Banana
6.       Home-made Strawberry and berries jam
7.       Honey
8.       Condensed-milk
9.       Sugar
10.   Nutella chocolate
11.   Shaved dark chocolate

After an hour of standing patiently and flipping pancake carefully trying not mess it up, here are some photos of our creations J
