This may be my new favorite holiday. We need to throw a “party.”

Count me in! I’m having pancakes for dinner, thank you very much. I’d prefer pancakes to a shallow donut anyday.

@Leanne1986 I thought for certain you’d been here that long. Here’s what a frizzer is. a “freezer”

Ooh, love it when the food stuff gets going. Yup, it’s pancake day here in chilly Blighty, my Hubby Mike makes lovely ones. Always prefers wholemeal flour – they come out nutty flavoured and substantial (today he used chapati flour, which worked a treat) – and local eggs. We had a savoury one, filled with a dahl he made last night, then several totally gorgeous ones with lemon juice and rapadura sugar.

When I was a kid, my Mum made pancakes for us; the joy was in waiting for her to get the first one out of the way, and being allowed to squeeze the lemons and sprinkle the sugar… Ooer, I’m getting hungry again now…

I love pancake day. Our pancakes are much thinner and bigger than American ones. More like crepes. Traditionally served with sugar and lemon juice. Yummy.
