Shrove Tuesday is also known as Pancake Tuesday or Pancake day in the US and Britain, and Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, by French-speaking cultures. It is the last day before the long fast for Lent in Christian countries, thus the day preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), and always falls in February or March. We'll be celebrating it on February 13th this year, which is fairly early in the calendar year.

Shrove Tuesday came to be known as Pancake Day because traditionally pancakes were eaten on this day to use up rich, indulgent foods like eggs and milk before the 40-day fasting season of Lent began.

To help you celebrate Pancake Day, here are two of our favorite pancake recipes that make use of our delicious Organic Einkorn Pancake & Baking Mix.

Honey cloud pancakes

2 cups Organic Einkorn Pancake & Baking Mix

2 large eggs, separated + 2 extra egg whites (optional)

1 to 1 1/4 cups milk (depending on how thick or thin you like your pancakes), buttermilk or a mix of both

2 tsp honey

a dash of vanilla extract

1 tbsp butter

a selection of warmed soft fruits, the larger ones sliced, or a warm fruit compote

more honey, to serve

In medium bowl combine mix, milk, egg yolks, honey and vanilla, beat for 30 seconds into a light batter.

Gently fold the egg whites into the batter  and stir just until a thick batter is formed. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Melt the butter in a hot frying pan or griddle.  Use a 1/4-cup measure, or a large cookie or ice cream scoop, and pour batter onto the griddle, leaving room for expansion. Turn the pancakes when a few of the bubbles that appear on the surface don't fill in. The second side will cook in about half the time the first side takes.

Sprinkle with fruit, drizzle with honey and serve.
