karohemd: Gentoo penguins in Antarctica, by me (Hungry)
So the idea of Pancake Day is to get rid of all the "forbidden" ingredients you might still have before Lent starts.
Interestingly, here these include eggs while in Germany not. The tradiotional baked goods for Shrove Tuesday are Krapfen a bit like doughnuts (fluffy yeast dough without eggs) but the closest I've had anywhere else were beignets in New Orleans. How they are prepared (dusted/iced, filled/unfilled, shape) etc. varies from region to region and even from family to family.

So the question is, are the rules of Lent different here and on the continent?

Oh, and a question for the pancake makers among you: What's your preferred fat to cook pancakes in? Mine is clarified butter
