Shrove Tuesday: London on the Flip-Side
With the red paper hearts thrown in the bin and all Valentine's chocolate reduced in stores, London is ready for the real star of February: Pancake Day.

This year, the capital is going flippin' mad on Tuesday 28 February, with a stack of offerings too good to miss. Whether you're looking for a tower of fluffy pancakes, topped with maple syrup and bacon, or prefer the classic French crpe with lemon and sugar, here's a list of the best offers being tossed up!

Kova Patisserie
Every season there's a fresh Japanese dessert sensation and Soho's Kova Patisserie is the newest on the list. The Mille Crpe Cake is made with 15 French crpe pancakes, towered on top of each other with a custard cream filling in between each layer.

The Mille Crpe Cake is handmade every morning in matcha (so on trend), chocolate, vanilla and fruit flavours, so perhaps go for one of each.

Unit 5, 9-12 St Anne's Court, London W1F 0BB

The Book Club
When one pancake isn't enough, there is The Book Club's all-day pancake party. Serving up dreamy combinations like a Mac N Cheese Pancake Sandwich and Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes, The Book Club's menu is pure indulgence.

And if you like Pia Coladas... Did we mention there will be Pia Colada Pancakes?

Lancaster London
The iconic, park-side hotel is welcoming Londoners to enjoy a day's worth of Pancakes, starting with a breakfast stack of crpes at Island Grill. Throughout the day, guests will be treated to a complimentary Nutella pancake roulade with all teas and coffees in the Lounge Bar.

Island Grill will be whisking up an exclusive set menu of exclusively pancake-inspired dishes - including a twist on the signature Fish and Chips made using a pancake batter!

Leadenhall Market
The legendary Leadenhall Market Pancake Race returns for 2017, which will see competitors flipping pancakes through the historic 14th century market hall. The prize? A75 dinner at The Lamb Tavern, but more importantly, the legendary frying pan trophy.

Races start outside The Lamb Tavern and are free to enter. Teams can register in advance by emailing lambtavernevents@youngs.co.uk or on the day at the restaurant.

Christopher's
Christopher's is a Covent Garden institution for their famous buckwheat pancakes. On Shrove Tuesday, they are going above and beyond with the pancake bases, so you can have your choice of buckwheat, buttermilk or blueberry-buttermilk (or all three).

Have pancakes your way with the tick-box menu for your base and toppings, simple!

The Queen of Hoxton
Pancakes? Tick. Rooftop party? Tick. Whisky maple syrup? Yes please...

The Queen of Hoxton knows how to keep everyone happy. This year for Shrove Tuesday they are hosting a six-hour batter-fest on the rooftop, complete with indulgent, OTT pancake offerings. On the menu are whisky maple syrup, pulled pork pancakes, or for those with a sweet tooth; buttermilk pancakes with caramelised banana, strawberry, chocolate & caramel sauce.

And if you're not planning on leaving the house to get your pancake fix, Whole Earth have shared a homemade recipe using everyone's favourite ingredient: peanut butter.

Whole Earth Homemade Pancakes
You need 3 cups of almond flour, 3 eggs, half a teaspoon of baking powder, a cup of almond milk and 2 tablespoons of butter (or your favourite alternative).

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, and whisk the eggs, milk and butter together in another bowl. Slowly add the dry mix to the eggs mixture, whisking as you go. If the mix still looks a little dry, add a dash of milk. Cook pancakes for 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

To serve, add a generous dollop of your favourite peanut butter, chopped berries or fruit of choice and a drizzle of maple syrup. Voila!

Wherever you end up digging into a towering stack of pancakes, you'll be sure to have a flippin' good time!
