A bit of history... 

Shrove Tuesday always falls 47 days before Easter Sunday, so the date varies from year to year and falls between February 3 and March 9. Shrove Tuesday was the last opportunity to use up eggs and fats before embarking on the Lenten fast and pancakes are the perfect way of using up these ingredients.  The pancake has a very long history and featured in cookery books as far back as 1439. The tradition of tossing or flipping them is almost as old: “And every man and maide doe take their turne, And tosse their Pancakes up for feare they burne.” (Pasquil’s Palin, 1619). 



Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes

​Makes two servings. 

This tutorial from our friends at Love Fresh Berries shows you how to make buckwheat pancakes from scratch, as well as how to make berry compote for pancakes!

For the pancakes:
1 ripe banana
1 cup milk of choice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch salt
Handful blueberries

For the compote:
2 cups fresh raspberries/strawberries/blueberries
Juice of ½ a lemon
1 tsp vanilla extract



  1. Mash the banana and then whisk it together with the milk, olive oil and vanilla extract.
  2. Add the buckwheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and mix until thick and gloopy.
  3. Add a little oil to a non-stick pan on a medium heat, then spoon 2 tbsp of your batter into the pan to form the pancakes. Cook as many as your pan can fit at a time. Drop 4 or 5 blueberries into each pancake and when they start to bubble, flip them over, cooking for a further 2 minutes until golden. Repeat with the whole mix.
  4. Whilst the pancakes are cooking, add the berries to a small saucepan, along with the lemon juice & vanilla extract & allow to heat very gently, stirring from time to time.
  5. Once all the pancakes are cooked, stack them high & top with the compote & any toppings of your choice.
