So what is your favourite pancake topping?

Today is Shrove Tuesday - commonly known as Pancake Day - the one day of the year when eating as many pancakes as possible is completely acceptable.

The date of Shrove Tuesday is determined by Easter, for which the actual date changes on an annual basis.

The day takes place each year exactly 47 days before Easter Sunday and is traditionally celebrated by eating pancakes in order to use up rich indulgent foods such as sugar and milk before the 40-day fasting season begins.
