Pancake Tuesday is on Tuesday, 1 March this year, followed by Ash Wednesday on 2nd March, which marks the beginning of lent in the Catholic church.
The day changes every year, according to when lent is. This is because it always precedes Ash Wednesday, which is exactly six weeks before Easter celebrations begin.
Pancake Tuesday always falls in February or March.
The simplicity of the pancake means that it has been tried, tested, and tried again a hundred times over, with each effort forming something slightly different to the last. Now, thousands of years after it first made its way into our diets, you can find multiple types of pancakes around the world.
Celebrate this Pancake Day with mouth-watering sweet and savoury recipes including chocolate chip, traditional crêpes Suzette and vegan tomato & mushroom.
