How To Celebrate Pancake Day

Eat breakfast for dinner on Pancake Day.

Celebrate Pancake Day by eating pancakes for dinner. Pancake Day is the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent. 

Pancake Day is more widely celebrated in England, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. People eat pancakes because they are made out of foods that are often restricted during Lent: sugar, flour and eggs. 

Try making English pancakes, which are similar to French crepes and easy to make. Grab some ingredients from Stop and Shop and get cooking!

Here's what you'll need:

  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 milk
  • 1 egg

*Makes four small pancakes

To serve:

  • sugar
  • lemon wedges

1. Mix the flour, milk and egg until well blended. 

2. Melt butter in a hot pan. Spoon a few tablespoons of batter into the pan. Once it has cooked for a minute or so, flip the pancake. The other side will need less than a minute. You will know it is done when both sides are golden brown.

3. To serve, sprinkle each pancake with sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Roll them up and enjoy!
