In A Pancake Paniiiic? Forgotten It's Shrove Tuesday? Don't Flip Out Until You've Read this!

04 March 2014 by

It’s Pancake Day, time to grab that frying pan and get flipping… But if you forgot this morning/ haven’t got the time to rush out to the shops or just don’t have the inclination/tools/ingredients to get whisking up a vat-load of pancake batter don’t worry, because we've just discovered that Marks And Spencer are currently selling a range of ready-made pancakes that you can just grab from the shelves on your way home from work tonight, warm up at home, and even pass off as your own should you so wish. And if you think that's full-on cheating, then why not 'half-cheat' - and buy their fresh, ready-to-fry pancake batter in a pot - simply pour it into a hot pan and cook. Happy Shrove Tuesday!
