I’ve been waxing lyrical to anyone that will listen about the simplicity of pancakes recently; making them via FaceTime with my nephew and just generally looking for a quick and simple dessert with fresh fruit and ice cream. I am a complete sucker for a good pancake; even if the fridge is looking bare except for a few staples you can always whip up something reasonably healthy and definitely filling, be it sweet or savoury.
With all the chaos of the last month or so and Easter being later this year, I’d completely forgotten that Shrove Tuesday was fast approaching; this Tuesday, March 4th if it had slipped your mind too.
It was all the pancake pins that had crept into my Pinterest feed over the last couple of days that reminded me that it was that time of the year. And after spending an hour in the dark, under the duvet, whilst Ian soundly slept on the other side of the bed; I finally closed my eyes and dreamt of pancakes for breakfast, wracking my brain about what was in the cupboard.
