One of Easter’s celebration days, Shrove Tuesday, celebrated this year on 5 March, has unusual beginnings. Also known as Pancake Day, it began as a way to use up the luxury ingredients in the household ready for people to fast during Lent. Eggs and milk (prized items in poorer times) combined with some flour make pancakes! Add berries and cream on top and you have a celebration!

It’s fitting that Café All Sorts, who’ve supplied this recipe, is a community hub that welcomes its patrons to enjoy a coffee, cake or a light meal overlooking one of the Gold Coast’s most famous surf breaks.

Café All Sorts’ menu caters for and welcomes ‘all sorts’ of diners, from those wanting traditional to modern, free-range to sweet treats. It fills many purposes as a place to read the paper, have a chat, dine solo looking out to the beach, or as part of a group using the space inside the restaurant.

Café All Sorts has shared their pancake recipe to help you celebrate Pancake Day:
