Tuesday is Pancake Day, otherwise known as Shrove Tuesday. Traditionally the day before Lent when foods such as eggs, flour & sugar would be used up prior to the fasting.
I purchased a pack of pancake moulds years ago with every intention of making shaped pancakes but it never eventuated. I started using them as sandwich cutters when Miss M started daycare & thought it was about time I used them for their purchased purpose :-)
I've never used a pancake mould before but this was fun. I left the mould in place until the mixture bubbled & was ready to flip
Somehow I even managed to get the arms & legs marked, fancy that :-)
All cooked. . . and now I realise I didn't take a photo of him smothered in maple syrup & whipped cream, just as all good gingerbread men should be :-)
