Crepes

These are classed as a more traditional pancake for Shrove Tuesday, most pre mixed batters you buy in the shops will give you a crepe like outcome. These are really easy to make and take minutes! The mixture is quite thin so will produce thinner pancakes, it is common to have these with a variety of toppings such as syrup, bananas, chocolate sauce and strawberries.
