I Love Pancakes!

I had a late Pancake Day today as I’ve only just got home to the family. It was brilliant – my mum got so many treats to lavish on our homemade pancakes. Here’s a picture of mine wrapped up with vanilla ice cream and raspberry sauce in the middle. Delish! (Sadly, there’s a problem with ice cream on pancakes; it makes the pancakes go cold too quickly. I know I should have realised this, but the temptation was far too great to dismiss.)

Yet this means that tomorrow, for us anyway, is the beginning of (a slightly late) Lent. Now, I’m not particularly religious and neither is my family but we have made a tradition of giving up all our sweet treats for 40 long days and nights. Therefore, from tomorrow I won’t be eating chocolate, crisps, sweets, fizzy drinks or biscuits until Easter. And no baking for over a month. It’s going to be tough, so wish me luck. I’m probably going to need it.
Hope your pancakes were as good as mine. Happy Pancake Day!
