Harrow Weald care home residents and staff celebrate Shrove Tuesday with a ‘pancake race’

The staff and residents at Wilsmere House care home in Harrow weald have been flipping and turning pancakes all morning in preparation for their annual Shrove Tuesday pancake race.

 

Wilsmere House has marked this year’s Pancake Day with a pancake race, pancake flipping competition and of course, lots of pancakes!


The head chef at the home, flipped more than 100 pancakes, serving them up with sweet and savoury fillings for all the eager staff and residents.

 

Christian T said: “My secret to the best pancakes is all in the whipping. Give it some elbow grease when mixing the batter and you’ll get perfect pancakes every time.

“I like experimenting with the fillings – the residents’ favourites’ spinach and cheese, chocolate spread and banana and of course, good old fashioned lemon and sugar!”

 

Residents at Wilsmere House commented: “I absolutely love pancake day, it takes me back to my childhood when my mother used to make us all pancakes and we’d all wait in turn for ours hoping the batter would stretch to another.  

“We’ve had so much fun reminiscing and sharing our favourite recipes for fillings.”
