We will go through the posted recipes a few days before the event (TBA) and pick one to cook at the common room on this special day!!! Make sure to include the name of the pancake, origin, ingredients, and the method of making it when you share your recipes on this event page. Don't worry if your recipe was not the selected one! We have come up with an idea to share all your recipes by compiling them all in one nice tiny notebook and share it with everyone attending the event!
