Who else is looking forward to whipping up a storm in the kitchen this Pancake day?
Traditionally, pancakes were eaten on this day to use up rich, indulgent foods like eggs and milk before the 40 day fasting season of Lent began.
Pancake Day – also known as Shrove Tuesday is a moveable feast because Easter changes every year – and this year it’s taking place on Tuesday the 9th February.
With the team at Shelfstore being such huge fans of this day, we thought we’d put together the three most important things we think you need in order to have the perfect Pancake Day.
1. An organised kitchen
There’s nothing worse than when you’re looking forward to getting started with your pancake making and you are greeted with a kitchen full of clutter. Try to have bit of a clean-up and clear out beforehand – the key to a practical and functioning kitchen is to keep it tidy at all times!
2. The necessary ingredients
Chances are you are already going to have the essential ingredients for your pancakes stocked up in your pantry, or at the back of your kitchen cupboards. So dig deep to find those items – if not, then you’ll need to head to the shops. Make sure you’ve got a measuring cup, frying pan, mixing bowl, along with flour, milk, eggs, salt sometimes vegetable oil – then whatever else you want to include in your pancake mix.
3. Stock up on the toppings
Who just sticks to one topping? There’s so much to choose from when it comes to your pancake toppings, and if you’re greedy like us you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a few options. Here are three of our favourite flavours: Nutella and strawberries, lemon and sugar or peanut butter and banana!
That’s it folks – those are the three essentials, whether you go for sweet or savoury – Happy #PancakeDay
