Brown sauce of course.
Now there's an interesting idea, I have however finished the pancakes now as well. Me and my lodger had differing opinions on the best way of cooking them mind, so we did some his way and some mine. Mine are of course nicer, a fact he fearcely disputes
I was just wondering how many of those indulging in the Christian Shrove Tuesday tradition of pancakes will put themselves down as Christian on the census. Like Christmas, the Christian Easter festival has been hijacked.
I made over 40 of the things last night for young people at our youth centre. some of the things there were putting on them were weird. jam and nutella was one combination. I personally just like a knob of salted butter. omm nom nom. we made the batter in a large washing bowl but we couldn't mix from raw ingredients due to allergies present so had to use a gultin and wheat free mix.
I agree it's a shame that people don't realise where the tradition comes from or why it's done. I'm in a catholic school, but as far as i know we didn't have pancakes here or teach the students about the meaning of the day. Shame really but hey ho - tho's Christians (or was it the Jews?) came up with what i call a tasty meal.
Nutella mjs-mjs?? Presumably none of the allergies present were nut related then! Wonder if Peanut Butter would make an acceptable filling? Though all I need to enjoy Peanut Butter is a spoon.....
@ maniac I would be interested to know what the different ways of cooking a pancake are. I can only think of one.
As it's the day after, I think it's now time for the traditional bragging of "I managed to eat X pancakes!". When I was in school, the day after pancake day, everyone would compare numbers and brag about how many pancakes they polished off!
I did not keep track when I made them last night but estimate I ended up polishing off somewhere between 8-10. Switching between Sugar & Lemon and Maple Syrup toppings!
Christian Easter Festival?? What of Eastre, who was the goddess of fertility and responsible for all those eggs? Not Christian, I don't think!
Many Christian festivals have their roots in much earlier celebrations - so I don't think that people who celebrate pancake day can be accused of following a purely Christian tradition, any more than a Christian who has a yule log, holly and ivy at Christmas would consider themselves pagan
