These Traditional British Shrove Tuesday Pancakes aren’t just for Shrove Tuesday! I like to make these at any time of year. They are so simple to make. Just remember that these are not fluffy American style pancakes, they are thin like French crepes! Yum!

Start by making a typical pancake batter from flour, salt, egg and milk. Cook the pancakes in a skillet with melted butter. To serve, drizzle the cooked pancakes with fresh lemon juice or sprinkle with sugar and roll or fold to eat immediately. If you like to all eat together, keep the pancakes on a plate over a pan of simmering water to keep warm, then add the lemon juice and sugar when you are ready to serve.

To make the Traditional British Shrove Tuesday Pancakes, you will need the following ingredients:
