Pancakes by Wee Buns
SOME use a griddle, most use a frying pan, while others turn to a long-standing family recipe. But whatever your tradition, Pancake Tuesday is always full of fun and delicious delights.
Whether it’s novelty shapes or tasty toppings, this year provides the perfect opportunity to get the whole family involved.
To help you enjoy this year’s Pancake Tuesday, Discover Northern Ireland has teamed up with two local baking experts to share their recipe secrets.
Nestled in the beautiful countryside of County Tyrone, just outside Moy, is Wee Buns Cookery School, owned by Mary Anne Mackle, who has been passionate about cooking and baking her whole life.
In County Down, on the shores of Strangford Lough, Tracey Jeffery runs Tracey’s Farmhouse Kitchen where she has crafted and shared her culinary skills with a host of guests.
