Pancake Day

Today is Shrove Tuesday, which in the UK only means one thing: PANCAKES!

Across Britain, people will be celebrating the last day before Lent by enganging in pancake races, decorating crepes, and scoffing lots of battery goodness.  Pancakes are eaten as they are made out of the main foods available, sugar, fat, flour and eggs, whose consumption was traditionally restricted during the ritual fasting associated with Lent.
