Today is my favorite day of the year: Pancake Day. I’m a sucker for pancakes of all shapes and sizes, for any meal of the day. Unfortunately for me, my husband is not such a fan, so I love Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday (also known as Shrove Tuesday) all the more for its hundreds-year-old dedication to pancakes and to practicality, giving me an excuse to make pancakes for dinner.
Originally created as a way to use up all the rich foods in the house the day/night before Lenten fasting began on Ash Wednesday, now it’s just a fabulous way to celebrate one of God’s gifts to the culinary catalog.
Now, thanks to Pinterest, there are hundreds of pancake recipes to choose from for every taste and every budget, from traditional to trendy. Check out our Flipping for Flapjacks Pinterest board for our favorites, including some of these highlighted below:
