The 24th was Pancake Day here in the UK. You tradi­tion­ally make pancakes to use up all your indul­gent bits before Lent. I’m not at all reli­gious, and I don’t give anything up for Lent, but I always make pancakes.

English pancakes are like crepes but a bit thick­er. You need 1 egg, 1/​2 a pint of milk (ie 250ml or 10 fl oz) and 100g of flour, however much water you want and a pinch of salt. You just whisk the ingredi­ents togeth­er, leave it for half an hour or so, then pour a small amount into an oiled frying pan and fry one side. When it comes to turn­ing them over, you loosen the edges and then throw it in the air and catch it again once it’s turned over, and contin­ue to fry it.

Usually you serve the pancakes with lemon juice and sugar, but I had mine with melted cheese and mush­rooms as a dinner (the pancakes aren’t sweet, so you can eat them with whatever)
