Shrove Tuesday in the UK
Also known as Pancake Day, so what are pancakes?
For the pancake mixture:
220g  plain flour, sifted
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 pint of milk
50g butter
Makes about 8 pancakes

Method for making the batter
1.Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl with a sieve held high above the bowl so the flour falls down really fine.
2.Make a hole in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it.
3.Whisk the eggs making sure any bits of flour from around the edge of the bowl are mixed in with the egg.
4.Slowly add small quantities of the milk, still whisking
5.Continue whisking until the batter is smooth, with the consistency of thin cream.
6.Melt the 50g of butter in a non-stick frying pan.
7.Spoon 2 tablespoons of the melted butter into the batter and whisk it in.
8.Let the pancake mix stand for at least 30 minutes before cooking.
9.Pour any leftover butter into a dish. This will be used later to grease the frying pan after each pancake has been made.
10.Make sure the non-stick frying pan is really hot before adding about 2 tablespoons of the batter mixture.
11.As soon as the batter hits the hot pan, tip the pan around from side to side to get the base evenly coated with batter.
12.Carefully lift the edge of the cooked pancake with a palette knife to see if it's tinged gold as it should be – not a pale cream coloured but not burnt brown either.
13.Flip the pancake over with a pan slice or palette knife to cook the other side
14.Slide it out of the pan onto a plate.
15.Stack the pancakes as you make them between sheets of greaseproof paper on a plate.
To serve
Traditionally pancakes are sprinkled with caster sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice .......
But you can have chocolate or chopped up fruit with cream
