    If, as an average, around half the population eat at least one pancake today does that mean a big one day spike in milk (and egg) demand?

    If so how do the dairies cope? Does anyone know how much demand goes up by?

    I was listening to the radio going on about Pancake Day today and it made me think.

    We notice no difference, our egg supplier was saying the same.
    The punters probably buy a ready mixed pancake brew from b*****y Tesco et al these days
    A quick seach shows frozen ones available

    I’ll put myself in that category after my embarrassing effort last year. My pancakes ended up with the taste and consistency of a tractor tyre.

    My other half has relegated me to the washing up this year while she does the cooking!

    Our milk consumption has gone up by a pint today. That’s less in the tanker tonight. My milk processor may be on the phone tomorrow wondering where it is. Smaller cheque for me next month:(
