The tradition of making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Tuesday) has its origin in the need to use up perishable foods before the Lenten fast began.
Instead of lemon juice and sugar, the pancakes can be served with ice cream topped with maple syrup or orange liqueur, or raspberry or chocolate sauce. Alternatively, the pancakes can be ﬁlled with stewed fruits, such as apples or blackberries, and served with cream.
Is it wrong to eat almost the entire batch yourself? *grin* - 19 Feb 2009
You can also use brown sugar with orange juice. We use to have these on Sundays. Either lemon juice and white sugar or brown sugar and orange juice. Yum. - 03 Mar 2014
