Pancake Tuesday

Pancake Tuesday is the name people in Britain give to the day before Lent. Traditionally, it was for the purpose of using up milk, eggs, sugar and other items that were not allowed during the fast. It is more vestigial for most people now, including my family.

We had pancakes today, as we do every year. Here's the recipe I used:

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 T baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 egg and 1 portion egg substitute (1 Tground flaxseed soaked in 3Twarm water)
2 cups vanilla soymilk
4T olive oil

Mix and then cook on griddle over medium heat.

Meanwhile cut up one apple person into 8 sections and place in pie plate. Sprinkle 1/2C brown sugar over the wedges. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.

Layer pancakes and apples on each plate. Serve with maple syrup and butter or whatever you like on yout pancakes.


And have a blessed Lent, focused on our Lord.
