Reblogging Cinnamon Roll Pancakes! All the Shroves rejoice! This morning I used Jamie Oliver’s amazing and EASY pancake recipe (I just substituted almond milk for the regular milk to appease my moody stomach) and it was perfect. His recipe is here: http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/eggs-recipes/pancakes-usa-stylie

“Pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent because they were a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting season of the 40 days of Lent. The liturgical fasting emphasized eating plainer food and refraining from food that would give pleasure: In many cultures, this means no meat, dairy, or eggs.”
Wow. My mind is so bursting with knowledge and my stomach is ready to be bursting with pancakes, so lets get started. And I’ll make these dairy-free in honor of Lent. Just kidding, it’s in honor of me or anyone who can’t digest bovine juice.
Now, feast your eyes on this stack of pancakes (you’ll need to if you want to get the term ‘bovine juice’ out of your mind!)
