My wife flips them, then I eat them in one go......


P.S. I can cook, just not pancakes. No matter what I do they end up burning or falling apart when I try to flip or turn.

How do you eat yours?

Oh heck now my mouth is watering
I flip the pancakes. I eat them with a fork.

I buy ready made ones and heat them in the microwave, dress them with lemon juice & sugar and then munch them.

I do have a really good reason for buying ready made ones.....I don't actually have any cooking facilities or pans where I live, just a combi microwave....the kitchen is tiny, no room for a cooker or hotplate of any sort

Maybe no one will ask but I didn't know what Shrove Tuesday was so I googled. Hope it's right.

Shrove Tuesday is a term used in English-speaking countries, especially the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, and parts of the United States[2] for the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of the season of fasting and prayer called Lent.

In the United Kingdom and many other countries, the day is often known as Pancake Day. Making and eating such foods was considered a last feast with ingredients such as sugar, fat and eggs, whose consumption was traditionally restricted during the ritual fasting associated with Lent.

I'm a flipper....and I prefer lemon and sugar. OH went to a village pancake day today, and had a chicken supreme one....the mind boggles!!!
But it's TOSS a pancake....though you've to be careful with words these days.....
Mix a pancake, stir a pancake,
Cook it in a pan..
Toss a pancake
Catch a pancake
Eat it while you can!
...or something similar, from 40 years of tossing pancakes in Infants' schools...

What makes you think we would understand any better if you wrote in Americanish?

We just turn them. When served we have fruit and fresh cream with them.

Did we all see Prince William and Kate tossing pancakes in Belfast????
When I lived in Scarborough, we would all go to the foreshore and skip with the ropes from the fishermens' boats, on Shrove Tuesaday.
We had pancake races in my village, but on Sunday so the children could join in.
