Pancakes on Shrove Tuesday

A tasty recipe from Warren Brown's new book, CakeLove in the Morning

With today being Shrove Tuesday and a traditional day to indulge in breakfast for dinner—specifically pancakes, I found Warren Brown’s Traditional Pancakes from his upcoming book CakeLove in the Morning (available for pre-order today and in stores in May!). In case you’re wondering where the tradition of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday came from, it always falls on the day before Lent begins, and since pancakes are mainly available from sugar, fat, flour, and eggs it is a celebration of foods that are traditionally restricted during the ritual fasting of Lent (thanks Wikipedia!).
