Scotch pancakes are like a smaller version of American pancakes - a little less spongy in the middle, you can still stack them up and they are perfect with maple syrup or even just with butter! I think of these as a Winter teatime treat - like a toasted teacake or crumpet, something you eat by the fire.

Despite being spoilt for choice when it comes to pancakes for me there is only one style that is permissible on Shrove Tuesday. They have to be very thin and soft with crispy golden edges. The first one will go wrong and you can eat it straight out of the pan and you obviously have to have a go at tossing one (this one will more than likely end up on the floor and can be fed to the cat). Will you be celebrating pan cake day this evening? Do you have a tried and tested recipe that you rely on year after year or will you be whipping up something completely new? Share in the comments!
