Well, its the 11th February and by now we should have all decided what we plan to give up for Lent. Shrove Tuesday or ‘Pancake Day’ is the last chance to indulge before we attempt to live without that ‘certain something’ for 40 days. This recipe provides the ultimate treat to enjoy before Lent begins.
