Pancakes are traditionally eaten on Shrove Tuesday. Shrove Tuesday is the last day before Lent. Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter. Historically, during this time people would give up luxury items including foods such as butter and eggs, which led to the tradition of making pancakes.
1. Sift the flour, salt and bi-carb soda into a large mixing bowl.
2. Using a wooden spoon, stir in sugar.
3. Add the beaten egg, combined milk and vinegar and whisk until smooth.
4. Pour the batter into a measuring jug.
5. Over a medium heat, melt a quarter of the butter in a frying pan.
6. Once the butter is melted, pour in three or four even pancakes in the pan.
7. When bubbles start to form on the surface of the pancake, flip with a metal spatula or egg flip.
8. Stack pancakes on a plate and repeat process until all batter is cooked.
9. Serve with chosen topping ingredients.
