National Pancake Day
28th February 2022
28th February 2022
Get your eggs, butter, and milk ready, as National Pancake Day is here!
Pancake Day always arrives 47 days before Easter, with Shrove Tuesday falling on 1 March in 2022.
The most important part of this day is to stuff ourselves silly with stacks of fluffy pancakes. Top them off with your favourite toppings, or try something different like chocolate syrup or an unusual fruit pairing. Pancakes also have different variations like crepes and even waffles, so you can always tweak it a bit.
If you prefer to eat out, in east London, the surroundings are as relaxed as the dish itself, with cool, laid-back cafes being the order of the day. East London shows far more exciting pancakes than the usual combination of lemon and sugar.
Here is a guide to the best places for pancakes in east London - enjoy!
