Who's eating pancakes for dinner tomorrow? Shrove Tuesday dinner is one of my favorite meals of the year. (Actually, we do breakfast for dinner like once a week all year long because my love for pancakes knows no bounds -- but Shrove Tuesday makes me feel like we're actually part of something special).
Shrove Tuesday (in case you were wondering) is also known as Pancake Tuesday and is another way to celebrate Fat Tuesday -- in the traditional sense of using up the butter, fat and eggs in the kitchen before the fasting of Lent begins on the following day -- Ash Wednesday.
As you know, egg allergy abounds in this household and although I do have a from scratch egg-free pancake recipe perfected -- I've lusted after the simplicity of a delicious, egg-free box mix for a long time now. And I've finally found it! Kruteaz Complete Buttermilk Pancake Mix is a-ma-zing! Just add water and mix. Delicious pancakes in seconds. A dream come true for this pancake-loving, allergy mama. (Full disclaimer: while there are no eggs listed as ingredients in the mix, the box does come with the disclaimer that it 'may contain' eggs, soy and tree nuts. If your child is affected by these disclaimers do not use).
While my egg-free recipe is OK and I love that my girls can eat the pancakes, the Krusteaz mix actually tastes like the pancakes I want to eat. Rich, sweet and buttery. And so much quicker than scratch!
Krusteaz also makes a Protein Buttermilk Pancake Mix (egg free) and a Belgian Waffle Mix (requires water, oil and egg). So worth checking out for Shrove Tuesday or any day you want pancakes for breakfast...or breakfast for dinner!
Happy Pancake Tuesday!
