Pancake recipes for Shrove Tuesday
To celebrate Shrove Tuesday 2012 (21st February) I’ve put together three of my favourite pancake recipes. The first one is basic, but a great starting point. It holds a special place in my heart, as it was the first recipe I ever cooked, all those years ago.
The Moroccan pancakes are light and soft, but take time are care to make. For those of you wanting to go all out, I recommend the Chinese pancakes as part of a banquet. Fill with crispy duck or chicken, cucumber and hoisin and enjoy!
I learnt this recipe from an old Good Housekeeping recipe book as a kid, and it’s stayed with me until now. It never fails to make great pancakes that you can fill up with sweet or savoury treats like bananas or cheese and ham.
We ate these pancakes every day for breakfast whilst staying in a riyad in Marrakech. Containing yeast and ground semolina, they take a little longer to make, but the pay-off is a lovely soft pancake delicious with butter and a drizzle of honey.
These Chinese pancakes are easier to make than you’d think, and are great filled with crispy duck or chicken, some fresh cucumber battons and a smear of hoisin sauce.
Have a great Shrove Tuesday and if you follow any of our recipes, please come back and let us know how you got on!
