What better way to celebrate Pancake Day than cooking with all your family in comfort!
We would love to see all your Pancake Day fits in your Loungers!
I will be wearing my Sea Otter Loungers & cooking up a storm!

What is Shrove Tuesday?
Shrove Tuesday is the traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Lent – the 40 days leading up to Easter – was traditionally a time of fasting and Shrove Tuesday was the last opportunity to use up all the eggs and fats before Lent.
What will you be giving up for Lent?
I have included a failsafe, fool proof pancake (BBC Good Food of course!) recipe below:
- 100g plain flour
- 2 large eggs
- 300ml milk
- Put the plain flour, eggs and milk into a bowl with a pinch of salt and whisk to form a smooth batter.
- Set a frying pan over a medium heat.
- Cook your pancakes for 1 minutes on each side until golden.
- Serve however you fancy!
Super simple to make & ridiculously yummy!!
Sweet or Savoury?
For me, nothing beats the classic lemon and sugar! Although I am partial to a bit of Nutella…
If you fancy a mix of sweet & salty try the American icon - bacon and maple syrup (be warned, this doesn’t work in a crepe… this flavour combo must be enjoyed with the thick, fluffy American pancakes)!
Will you be having a pancake race today? I always remember loving them at prep school!
Happy Pancake Day!!
