Or is it Shrove Tuesday?

In other parts of the world, people are celebrating Shrove Tuesday (aka Pancake Day) instead of Mardi Gras. If you’re like me, you celebrate both. So this morning I prepared pancakes.

Shrove Tuesday’s Pancakes and baked apples:

1 egg
100 g milk
50 g ricotta
25 g honey
100 g flour
6 g baking powder
Butter for cooking

Prepare the pancake batter: in a large bowl mix together milk, ricotta, honey, flour and baking powder. Let rest for half an hour. When ready, whip the egg white, fold into the batter and cook the pancakes. Serve with baked apples – I cut mine into pieces and put them in the microwave for a few minutes – faster than traditional baking. I like cinnamon with them.
