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.

They are one of our favorite pancakes! Glad you liked them!
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!
Why do I never know about these awesome culinary weeks?? And look at all these pancakes. I’m suddenly craving pancakes for dinner.
Just finished the lemon ricotta pancakes and all I can say is, “Oh my!!! Thank you so much!!!”. Happy happy Fat Tuesday!!!
Now I kind of want to have breakfast for EVERY meal for the next week!
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?
LOVE them all. Wish I could dive into a pancake stack right now 🙂
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!
Wow, what a treat! I can have a whole pancake month with this beauty!
Wow, those are some awesome looking pancakes! Happy National Pancake Week!
How many times a week do people tell you they’d like to eat at your house? These look delicious, how can I choose!?
I am dying over all of these pancakes! Thanks so much for sharing my banana ones! 🙂
Ha, I had no idea it was pancake week. Love your selections, they looks scrumptious!
I am so with ya… “Yay for Pancakes!” I craving the pancakes with the berry syrup drizzled all over. Mmmm.
Love your collection of pancakes! For as much as I love them, I don’t try different varieties nearly enough, thanks for the inspiration, definitely saving this post!
Wow! I didn’t realize there was a pancake week! The recipes and pictures look amazing! Can’t wait to try a few!
How did I not realize that it was National Pancake Week? I’m drooling over the blueberry sauce… I think that would be a major hit at my house. Looking forward to trying it!
Those look fabulous! We love the “dutch baby” pancakes. We shared one of our kid’s favorite pancakes– Marshmallow pancakes here– http://thedealgirls.com/2012/02/national-pancake-day-ooey-gooey-pancakes/
My wife, Hana and I, love the pumpkin pancake recipe on this page. Excellent pick!
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.
Its finger licking good… 😛
