Happy Pancake Day, Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, or whatever you want to call it!

When I found out that The Breakfast Club was running a pancake challenge – eat 12 in 20 minutes – I couldn’t resist. After a lot of chomping, swallowing and embarrassingly some retching, I completed it with less than 10 seconds to spare (and to avoid the £17.50 forfeit – although the money goes to charity).

A full report with video footage is coming soon, as is a special report on Swedish buns traditionally eaten at this time of year – semlor (a semla). Watch this space!

  1. Congrats on your culinary success (; Thank goodness those pancakes weren’t as wide and thick as some of the ones made over here! Happy Mardi Gras and Pancake Day to you, too (;
