Shrove Tuesday

Today is Shrove Tuesday. Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent for Roman Catholics. Now I am not catholic but always use the occasion to overeat on pancakes, the traditional Shrove Tuesday dish in Britain (hence its ‘secular’ name Pancake Tuesday).
Today I was lazy and decided to seek assistance from Betty. Not Betty Bossi this time, but Betty Crocker (might they be related?).

Add 200ml of water and shake for 60 seconds.

Make pancakes in a hot buttered pan.

I like to eat them with cinnamon sugar and apple compote.

After indulging on these pancakes I feel like having to give up something for lent. I’ll chose the ‘food’ I am most addicted to these days: Diet Coke (sad but true)…
