Last week was everyone’s favourite Tuesday of the year… Pancake Day! How many countries celebrate Pancake Day, by the way?
Well, we do here in the UK. I decided to make some very colourful pancakes and treated them a bit more like fajitas as I love attempting a whole entire meal made of only pancakes; savoury and sweet!
I got to work on making a huge bowl of batter as there were four hungry people to feed.
After lots of whisking, ladel-ing and flipping, I had seventeen pancakes ready!
So now to the colourful part. I prepared creamed spinach; onions, garlic, spinach, sweetcorn and natural yogurt and colourful red and yellow peppers. Both with a generous helping of pepper. All pilled up and sprinkled with cheese.
For dessert, none other than ‘manjar’ (It’s exactly the same as dulce de leche – it even says it on the pack – but in Chile it’s know as manjar, and some Chileans say that it’s different… it tastes the same to me anyway!) pronounced mang-har. So sweet and moorish. We brought this back from our November trip to Chile but I wanted to keep it for a special occasion… and Pancake Day is definitely that!
What do you like in your pancakes? And, which countries celebrate Pancake Day too?!
Last year’s pancakes are here, and how to make a pancake cake is here.
Pancake Day?!? I had no idea that such a glorious holiday existed! These treats look absolutely phenomenal… aaaand now my stomach is growling 🙂
Oooh, really?! I’m interested to see where people celebrate it! It’s a tradition that comes from way back when people used to use up some of their food supplies before the start of lent. And so, pancake day was born! They have so many Nutella displays in the shops for the week before 😀
Pancake Day…that sounds amazing! And the way you made these look so good!
Thank you Valerie. Pancake day always makes you think you should make more pancakes during the year… Then you usually don’t!
