17 pancake recipes that look too good to eat | Jose et Chris

Shrove Tuesday is upon us, and in addition to marking the day before Lent begins for Christians around the world, it also is known by another name — Pancake Day.

As the 40 days of repentance and self-examination starts with Lent (that's March 5 in 2014), the day just prior is meant for indulgence. And how better to indulge than by eating what is essentially cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner?

Of course, it's not just Pancake Tuesday that encourages debauchery. The entire Carnival and Mardi Gras season (most notably in Brazil and New Orleans) all lead up to this one day, with plenty of partying, drinking, parading and dancing as an "act of farewell to the pleasures of the flesh," according to Rio's Carnival site.

But for those of us who couldn't make it down south, eating pancakes seems like a fine way to indulge and overwhelm our senses. Whether you're gearing up to honour Lent or not, pancakes for dinner sounds like a delicious tradition to us! Here are 17 recipes that look way too good to eat.
