World Pancake Day – Flippin’ Delicious!

February 28th, 2022

Pancakes in Chelmsford

Pancake Day falls on what we call Shrove Tuesday. This year it lands on Tuesday, 1 March. Pancake Day always lands 47 days prior to Easter, meaning the dates vary year on year.

Shrove Tuesday is meant to be used as the last chance to use up any eggs and fats before embarking on Lent. Clearing the kitchen cupboards of things like eggs, milk and sugar to alleviate any temptations during the fasting period. In turn, people make pancakes!

Tuck into a Pancake Day feast at one of Chelmsford’s pancake restaurants or creperies, and look out for Pancake menus in restaurants and cafes across the area.
