|Shrove Tuesday Pancakes from England! |
(To be made and eaten on Shrove Tuesday-- the Tuesday before Lent begins)
We used to get these at St. Margaret's school in Streetly, Sutton Coldfield, England on Shrove Tuesday!
2 cups flour
2 cups milk
A little melted butter and salt
Toppings--- lemon juice and sugar.Put flour in a bowl and make a 'well' in the middle. Gradually whisk in the milk and eggs, and when all the flour is mixed in nicely, add the butter and salt. Let this stand for 1/2 hour
Use a little oil in a frying pan, and thinly spread the batter over the hot pan. Flip when you see bubbles all over the pancake. Keep them warm in the oven till you have a bunch. Serve with lemon and sugar! YUMMY!
