Mouth-watering Pancakes to celebrate Pancake Day (or any day)!
Serves 24
Tuesday, 5 March, is Pancake Day. It is usually the day before Ash Wednesday, just before Easter, when people often give up or stop eating things that are unhealthy, like chocolate or fast food. During this period people didn’t eat rich foods, like butter and eggs. So when Lent is over they use up all the ingredients they had saved up to make pancakes. For many South Africans, pancakes evoke a certain kind of nostalgia. People make pancakes because they're delicious, crowd-pleasing and easy to make. Clover Mama Africa is here to help with an easy-to-make delicious pancake recipe. Everybody loves a good pancake. A shared pancake breakfast is up everyone’s alley because who can resist the smell of warm cinnamon sugar pancakes.
