Pancake Day is fast approaching, with the widely celebrated day falling on the first day of March.
Shrove Tuesday can be made or fall apart as it all falls on the inevitable flip. If you land it, you’re treated as a king, if you fail it, Pancake Day is ruined.

We agree these aren’t pancakes, but Fuwa Fuwa had to be included. Do you remember those dreamy pancakes that went viral on TikTok? That’s Fuwa Fuwa pancakes.
Specialising in souffle pancakes, Fuwa Fuwa when translated is ‘fluffy fluffy’ and seems like a very niche take on the traditional pancake.
