Pancake Day, Shrove Tuesday

Pancakes, Pancakes, Pancakes.

Shrove Tuesday is a day we look forward to in the Baking Mad Kitchen. Not only are pancakes so easy to make, but they are also so versatile.

If you are board with traditional flavours and want to show a little we have the perfect serving suggestions just for you.

Do something different this year for Shrove Tuesday!!

Why not try squeezing some fresh lemon and sprinkling some Golden Caster on your pancakes? Or even Unrefined Demerara for a bit a crunch. It’s perfect with some berries or chopped apple.

If you like fudgey flavours Light Muscovado is a must for the ulimate indulgence in gooey yummy pancakes.
