We are a nation that loves pancakes. During Pancake Day, the UK consumes a whopping 117 million pancakes, which is around two pancakes per person. Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, usually lands in late February, kicking off the 40 day countdown until Easter Sunday. In the Christian calendar, it also marks the start of Lent. Although Lent is now thought of as 'New Year’s resolutions take two', it originated as a period of religious fasting in which people would give up foods such as eggs, meat, fish and fats.
Whether you’re into fluffy American pancakes, a thin french crepe, a waffle-pancake hybrid, or (vegan) chocolate – and lots of it– there’s a recipe in this list for everyone. So, before you give up all your edible vices, why not tuck into these vegan pancakes from some of our favourite chefs?
