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!

  6. Oh man, those pumpkin cinnamon streusel pancakes look so freaking awesome! I could pretty much eat pancakes for every meal and not get sick of them, especially with all these different variations. Thank you so much for the pancake round-up. I definitely will be trying all of them out very very soon. Tomorrow’s breakfast can’t come soon enough!

  7. Why do I never know about these awesome culinary weeks?? And look at all these pancakes. I’m suddenly craving pancakes for dinner.

  8. Just finished the lemon ricotta pancakes and all I can say is, “Oh my!!! Thank you so much!!!”. Happy happy Fat Tuesday!!!

  9. You must be kidding…is there a National Pancake week??? It’s very interesting. You know something…this week in Peru is the “National Chilcano Week”, chilcano is a cocktail prepared with Pisco, our national liquor. Maybe I can combine a pancake with Pisco…why not?

  10. We made your chocolate dutch baby for our pancake dinner and it was delicious! We also had strawberries. I got a little fancy and whipped up some cream and added in orange zest, and fried up some bacon. Perfect breakfast for dinner. My mom has made dutch baby for as long as I can remember, but never a chocolate one. I’ll definitely be sharing the recipe with her!

  11. I tried this amazing recipe to make peanut butter and jelly oatmeal pancakes the other day. It tastes best when served with strawberry jam.
    Combine 1 1/2 cup oats, 3/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, sugar, and salt each in a large bowl. Set bowl aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 cups skim milk, 2 eggs, peanut butter, and 3 tablespoons melted peanut butter. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients, being careful not to over mix the batter. Now, heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Spoon the batter and cook the pancakes well on both sides.
