It's Pancake Day - so here's a JS Bach pancake, obviously

Remove the pancake from the heat and keep warm in a low oven while you repeat the process with the rest of the batter.

Dating back over one millennia Shrove Tuesday is a day of celebration and penitence, the last day before Lent.

The dish is available at £5.95 on for Shrove Tuesday. Shrove Tuesday - which can also be celebrated in the form of "Fat Tuesday" or "Mardi Gras" - is celebrated all over the world in countries like Denmark, Poland, France and Sweden.

It may not always feel like it when you're four pancakes deep and have maple syrup all over the place, but Pancake Day is an event steeped in waste prevention... sort of.

The average person will eat 2½ pancakes on Tuesday with most people marking the day in some way, according to a survey. Within 15 minutes, you can turn a roasted squash into a nifty Pancake Day dinner topped with grated cheese (above). Pancakes were an easy way to use up eggs, butter and milk as well as other lngredients such as chocolate, sugar and cream.

Whether you like them sweet or savoury, fluffy or thin - Nottingham experts have the secret to making ideal pancakes. Pour the mixes separately into the centre of a well-greased pan - this will stop the pancake sticking - and cook for an equal amount of time on each side.

Then you are are ready to go - adding sugar and lemon, or Nutella - or whatever you fancy. It's time to get tossing!
