Pancake Recipes for Shrove Tuesday & National Pancake Week

Happy Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day. Shrove Tuesday (Fat Tuesday) is the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. It is tradition to eat pancakes on this day because it is the last day to indulge before giving up foods that aren’t allowed during Lent. Pancakes are the perfect food to eat because they contain butter, eggs, flour, and sugar-foods most people give up for Lent. It is also National Pancake Week. Yay for pancakes! We love pancakes at our house so today we are sharing a few of our favorite pancake recipes to help you celebrate Shrove Tuesday and National Pancake Week.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes

German Pancake with Berries

Whole Wheat Kefir Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

Lemon Cottage Cheese Pancakes with Strawberries

Pumpkin Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes

And here are a few pancake recipes from our blogging friends that are on our must make list:

If you didn’t have time to make pancakes for breakfast this morning, don’t worry, pancakes are always tasty for dinner. We love “Brinner” at our house:) And you have all week to celebrate…and there are no excuses, because you have plenty or pancake recipes to choose from now. You might need to eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Happy Pancake Eating!

    So many amazing pancakes! I missed that it was Shrove Day and had never heard of that…I knew that Fat Tues was the day before Lent and last day to indulge, hence the name..didn’t know that about pancakes though. I love factoids :)
