The best way to celebrate Shrove Tuesday is by feasting on many, many pancakes – whether you favour the classic recipe, the vegan alternative, the gluten-free version or trying out some trendy toppings.
And there’s no shortage of options for fillings either, with many favouring the classic lemon and sugar topping, fruits and cream or savoury style pancakes with plenty of cheese. In fact, even your pets can join in the fun.
Unsurprisingly, Pancake Day is also the cause for many jokes, with people tossing awful puns around aplenty.
