Happy Pancake Day

In England, (and the rest of the UK) the Tuesday before Lent is known as Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday). On that day it is traditional to eat pancakes, toss pancakes and take part in pancake races.

The origins of eating pancakes arose from Christians who observe Lent and wanted to use up all the rich foods in their cupboards before Lent. During Lent eggs, sugar and butter were not allowed so these ingredients were used to make pancakes.

Today most people celebrate Pancake Day regardless of religion.

So, Proporta would like to wish you a lovely Pancake Day and if yours they look anything like the ones below, we’re sure you’ll enjoy them.
