This Gingerbread Pancake recipe is a great way to celebrate pancake day!  Shrove Tuesday (known in some countries as Pancake Day) is a day in February or March, preceding Ash Wednesday(the first day of Lent), which is celebrated in some countries by consuming pancakes. Well at our house we love to consume pancakes. Here are some of our favorite pancake recipes: Healthy Whole Wheat and Flax Pancakes, Chocolate Pancakes, Cinnamon Shake and Pour Pancakes and Buttermilk Shake and pour pancakes. We especially like making smiley face pancakes!
