Happy Pancake Day!

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!

  2. Happy pancake to you, too! 🙂
    This morning, I made oatmeal for breakfast because it totally slipped my mind that its PANCAKE DAY!! Ahhhh how dare I?? 😛 Sadly, I dont have all the ingredients to make pancakes today.. but I will be having pancakes someday this week. 😀

  3. This is the easiest recipe ever! I need to make these stat 🙂

    I literally could not even read anything after “Pumpkin Peanut Flour Pancakes topped with leftover Cashew Cream Icing and thawed frozen raspberries” as my mind was drooling.

  5. i was raised catholic and i didn’t even know it was lent! i kind of fell out of the religion after i went to college. but i always do like to give something up, i’ll have to think quick!

  6. I was planning on pancakes today, but forgot I have to work late, so so pancakes for me. I will celebrate pancake day on Thursday. I know, I’m a little late to the party, but that’s all I can do. These look killer of course. I am a lapse Catholic and give up nothing for Lent. I know, I should be better…

    Have a great day Heather!

  7. Haha, I’m in no way religious but the excuse to make pancakes on a week day is just too good to pass up, glad you joined in the fun!

  8. Pancake day is totally one of my favourite days of the year! I love pancakes loads, and any opportunity to eat them is good by me. I always opt for buckwheat pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, with a variety of toppings… but these peanut pumpkin ones do look rather tempting!

  9. I’m not having pancakes today, but I am having a Mardi Gras dinner with my family tonight! Although your pictures are making me regret not having pancakes. 😛

  10. YEAH pancake day!! Only funnily enough, british pancakes are more like crepes (don’t let my flat mates hear me telling you that)
    I treated myself to pancakes as well. Spelt ginger plum ones. Wow I think best yet!! Yours look fab though. cashew cream icing mmmmm
    lent? um….when does it begin? today? tomorrow? SHOOT.
    not catholic or religious. But as a religion major, perhaps I should give it a shot. I’ll give up nut butters.
