Shrove Tuesday

Shrove Tuesday today. We made pikelets for morning tea. I don't know if there are pikelets in the US? If not, they are just mini pancakes, so use any pancake batter and just make them smaller.

Whirlwind always likes to eat the crunchy bits that drip into the pan and cook up all crispy and buttery!

We ate them with jam and cream - just because! We can all do with a little whipped cream now and then!

And a new use for baskets. I bought these baskets the other day from the $2 shop, thinking they would be good for sorting. This is what Whirlwind thought they would be good for.

And Legoman thought they looked like snake charmer baskets.


  1. Mmmm yum ~ we make pancakes or pikelets each weekend :-) And love the use for the baskets. So glad you joined in at Happy lil ❤'s are baking!

  2. Good to join in! We also have pancakes every weekend; all the children, even the big ones, would be super disappointed if we didn't!
