So are you ready to be shriven? The season of Lent is almost upon as and as you prepare to fast (or atleast give something up that means more than a hill of beans to you) you should be dusting off your frying pan and mixing up your batter ahead of tomorrow's festivities.
For the pancakes you will need:
Ingredients for the pancake mixture:
110g/4oz plain flour, sifted
pinch of salt
200ml/7fl oz milk mixed with 75ml/3fl oz water
That's right; in the spirit of hair-shirtiness that goes with eating pancakes and being shriven, you must eschew the delights of syrup on your pancake(s) and go for the sweet and sour delight of lemon and sugar. They should also be, as the popular phrase states, as flat as a pancake, more like a crepe than an American breakfast pancake.
Now that you have that right, there's just one question left. What will you be giving up?
