loti x the breakfast club <br> pancake day
Pancake day, Shrove Tuesday or Sprengidagur (as the Icelandics like to call it) has been around for over 1000 years and we still can’t get enough of it. Every year us Brits use 52 million eggs on Pancake Day to mix up a gooey batter ready for tossing, but we have a long way to go if we want beat the record for the largest pancake ever made and flipped – it was 15.01m wide, 2.5cm deep and weighed 3 tonnes. People have really gone to great lengths to make the best pancakes, and back in the day before baking soda was invented, cooks even used fresh snow to make their pancakes soft and fluffy. Making pancakes is a pretty easy task these days though, you’ve just got to remember that the second side of the pancake takes half the amount of time to cook as the first and you’re good to go…
But sometimes we just wanna eat pancakes and leave out the making part (let’s face it we’re all busy!) and where better than The Breakfast Club, who are bringing back their annual pancake eating competition on the 28th Feb 2017. Challenging you to eat 12 pancakes in 12 minutes you’ll want to come with stretchy trousers, but if you think you can handle it you could get the stack on the house and not have to eat for the rest of the week. If you fail, well you’ll have to pay up, but with all profits going to charity you can see it as a good deed.[URIS id=82165]
If making yourself sick off pancakes isn’t your cup of tea, then you’ll be pleased to hear we jumped into bed with The Breakfast Club to create a special pancake for Pancake Day and it’s…drum roll please… a Bourbon pulled pork stack with pork Cubanos, cheese, kale and pickled slaw. Available from the 20th- 28th February 2017, it’s gonna be the best pancake you’ve ever eaten! But if you’re more in the mood for something sweet, you’ll be pleased to hear they’re flipping out three other specials too – Triple Chocolate, Fudge and Mallow, Salted Caramel Banoffee, and Lemon Meringue Pie – and they’ll make all of it with gluten-free batter if you ask nicely. So if you don’t wanna make a flop of it at home, get down to The Breakfast Club and let them toss it for you…
And if that wasn’t enough we’re giving one lucky person the chance to WIN a table for four at The Breakfast Club’s new bottomless brunch on a Saturday of you choice. That’s right from 3pm every Saturday The Breakfast Club in Hoxton will free pouring the bubbles and lager, alongside dishes from their brunch and brinner menus. So if you want in just drop us an email (email@example.com) with ‘Gimme’ Brunch’ in the subject line and we’ll pick a winner at random.
