Pancake Day with Brownies and Girls Guides!

Just as there is in the USA, "Fat Tuesday," Lancashire has their "Pancake Day" just before Lent. The explanations we received from the girls, were varied, "Why Pancake Day?"

One of the girls had mentioned that Jesus ate them. Well!!!!! Maybe? It gave me a chuckle!!

The ones they made were large and thin, almost like a crepe. Of course, I offered to make the "silver dollar" pancakes. They all enjoyed them. Some of the girls wanted the recipe, so I gave them the opportunity to write it out themselves. The only obstacle they saw was that I use "cups and teaspoons" where they use "mililiters and grams."
