Pancake Tuesday is Tuesday 25 February 2020. In the Christian calendar, this is the official start of Lent, a time of fasting. So Pancake Tuesday is like one big party before you have to starve yourself or give up something you love.
It’s also just a great excuse to make pancakes, even if you don’t practice religion. So here it is folks, our ode to Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday some may know it. Get your flour and eggs ready – for SURE you’re going to be craving pancakes after seeing these yummy stacks!
Just hold the can of whipped cream and let’s look at the basics for just a second here. Pancakes are made using flour, egg, sugar and milk. Yet LOOK AT THESE CREATIONS. I’m a little jelly with pancake excitement. And hunger. And oh so much sugar. Anyway, onwards we go.
Shrove Tuesday pancake stacks you don’t want to miss
1. Persian fairy floss – not your average pancake
It’s true, Persian fairy floss turns everything into art. If your kid won’t eat their cheese sandwich, whack some Persian fairy floss on it – for sure it’ll be gone in minutes.
2. The #fitspo pancake
OK, here’s one for the #fitspo files. Those of us *cough* who are thinking of the waistline, macros, yada yada. The protein powder pancake stack topped with banana and bacon is questionable, but who am I to judge. You do you, Boo.
3. The Eton mess creative
I like this meringue infused pancake for the simplicity fancy pants factor. It LOOKS fancy AF, yet is SO achievable – especially since meringue is available at your local supermarket these days. YUM.
4. Teddy bear
A pancake for the kids or the kids at heart, how cute is this little chocolate spread topped guy?! I bet you can’t wait to nibble his ears off either!
5. A camper’s delight
Well, my version of camping. I mean there’s a toasted marshmallow is there not?
6. The DIY approach
When you’re feeding a crowd or everyone is just being a plain pain in the proverbial with their pancake short orders, tell them they can make their own. But be classy about it by presenting them with a board of tasty morsels. Your work here is done, go back to bed and celebrate pyjama Tuesday.
7. The OMG factor
Every now and then you see the pancakes with OMG factor. The sort you want to go home straight after eating because no one is safe with the imminent sugar high and then the low of the crash. But boy, it’s worth it. People, feast your eyes upon this Oreo and Nutella stuffed delight. #ERMAHGOSH
