To all my American peeps out there who may not have heard yet…
It’s Pancake Day over in the UK!
*pause to acknowledge my clever use of rhyming before 7am*
Also known as Shrove Tuesday…or the day before Lent.
(for more info, click here)
Now, I’m fully aware that I don’t live in the UK, I’m not Catholic, and I JUST celebrated Pancake Sunday two days ago, but c’mon…you can’t expect me (The Pancake Queen) to turn down a chance to wake up early and make pancakes instead of going to the gym!
I may have beat off the crowds at the gym tonight when I get off work, but believe me…
It was worth it!
Pumpkin Peanut Flour Pancakes topped with leftover Cashew Cream Icing and thawed frozen raspberries!
And the “recipe” couldn’t be simpler:
1 serving just-add-water pancake mix…this one is my favorite!
1/4 cup peanut flour
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice
Did you/are you celebrating Pancake Day today?
Are you giving up anything for Lent?
Like I said, I’m not Catholic or anything, but I have given up things for Lent in the past just as kind of a test of my willpower. One year I gave up chocolate…that’s the year I found out cocoa is in red velvet cake! Lol
I’ll have to do some thinking today and decide if I’ll be doing it this year.
Hope you all have a fantastic FAT Tuesday!
Now go make some pancakes!
