National Pancake Week

Got maple syrup? A hearty appetite? National Pancake Week continues through Saturday (Feb 25). Originally the celebration surrounds Shrove or Pancake Tuesday. My take on this is a week-long celebration of Fat Tuesday. It is also geared to recognize the history and continuing popularity of pancakes.

Personally, I love a big stack of blueberry pancakes with plenty of maple syrup. The berries and syrup, both products grown and made in Michigan (support your local economy!). The mild winter may play havoc on this year’s maple syrup production, but last year was a really good year. Might be a good time to stock up if you happen to find a supply nearby.

Another take on the pancake is the crepe. If you’ve never tried crepes, the Flint Crepe Company on Saginaw Street in downtown Flint is a great place to get a taste! Celebrate Pancake Week however you like, I’ll be whipping up a batch in my kitchen at home. I know they’re done when the smoke alarm goes off.
