It’s World Pancake Day! Stack up on a bit of History and Gorgeous Pancakes


There is that one day of the year when it is totally acceptable to throw food around and stuff your face with pancakes (we know you do it as often as possible).

It’s World Pancake Day 2017.

The food holiday usually falls 47 days before Easter so the date is not constant but you can be assured that it falls between February 3rd and March 9th.

This year, Pancake Day takes place today, Tuesday February 28th which also marks another holiday, Shrove Tuesday.

Shrove Tuesday is the day that precedes Ash Wednesday. The day gets its name from the tradition of Christians trying to be ‘shriven’ before Lent and the day sees Christians going to Confession, admitting their sins to a priest and asking for absolution. A bell would be rung to call them to Confession, which was called the ‘pancake bell’. It’s still rung today.

In the US it’s called Mardi Gras aka ‘Fat Tuesday’ in French mainly because we use up the fatty foods before Lent.

Pancake Day itself came much later as a way of using up rich foods, like eggs, milk and sugar before the 40 days of fasting – Lent .

How do you like your pancakes, savoury or sweet? We have gathered a collection of photos, tips and recipes for you to enjoy.
