Tuesday is Pancake Day. It is also Carnival Tuesday in Trinidad & Tobago, Panama and Dominica - the last day of feasting and frolicking before the beginning of Lent.
While pancakes are enjoyed all year round, there is something special about having them on Pancake Day, especially the Guyanese-style pancakes which are more like the Portuguese malasadas, a direct influence of food of that country on Guyana. They are puffy nuggets of doughnuts. I like them the traditional way I grew up having them, with homemade syrup but for the past two years, I have also been rolling them into cinnamon sugar. They are sooooo good with tea or your favourite hot beverage.
Anyway, as you can see, I've decided to give you options for Pancake Day. Take your pick and enjoy!
