Today is Shrove Tuesday and we’ve done some pancakes. I wanted a different recipe so tried the red velvet ones made with beetroot. You can’t really taste the beetroot, but it gives a vibrant red colour. To keep the pancakes red while cooking you have to fry them on low and I also did not flip some of them and kept a lid on.

There are different recipes out there, but they have the same ingredients as a normal pancake. The only difference is that you add the pure of a steamed beetroot in the milk.
