Do not you just love Pancakes? All my life I have not missed tosssing pancakes on Shrove TuesdayI never made pancakes today as my daughter needed to make them. Anyway here I have included a few habits for Shrove Tuesday.
A famous pancake race in Olney in Buckinghamshire has been held since 1445.
In Ireland, Australia, and Canada, Shrove Tuesday is called”Pancake Tuesday”, while in Britain it’s popularly known as”Pancake Day”. In both areas the traditional pancake is a really thin one that is served immediately sprinkled with caster sugar and a dash of fresh lemon juice or rather drizzled with Golden syrup.
In the Canadian province of Newfoundland, family items are baked in the pancakes and served to relatives. Rings, thimbles, thread, coins, and other items have meanings associated with them. The lucky one to find coins in their pancake will be wealthy, the finder of this ring are the first married, and also the finder of this thimble is going to be a seamstress or tailor. Kids have great fun with the heritage, and frequently eat more than their fill of pancakes seeking a desired object.
Pancakes are eaten to consume eggs and milk, which aren’t eaten during Lent, and would otherwise spoil in this time.
