Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

  Get Directions

By tradition, we associate pancakes with the day preceding Lent because they are a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting season of the 40 days of Lent. The liturgical fasting emphasizes eating a simpler menu and refraining from food that would give undue pleasure. In many cultures, this means no meat, dairy products, or eggs.
