Another year, another Shrove Tuesday. I have once again forgotten to buy the various things needed that are not in stock until the day. Previous years have seen a desperate attempt to procure last minute maple syrup from various different supermarkets, but this year, Co-Op came up trumps.
This year I will be trying an American pancake recipe I heard on Woman’s Hour this morning. Apparently you need to separate the eggs, and whisk the whites before combining them with the batter. This gives a thicker pancake.
Not sure what, if anything, I will give up for Lent. Lie-ins? Late nights?
