Extreme Pancake Tossing

National Trust encourage hungry ramblers to visit one of their many scenic locations around Northern Ireland this Shrove Tuesday and indulge in the centuries-old tradition of pancake tossing

Those fed up with their New Year's diets will be pleased to know that Shrove Tuesday has finally arrived, and for one day only we are all contractually obliged to stuff our faces with pancakes savoury and sweet.

Whether you toss them, flip them or make intricate images in the frying pan with them, the National Trust is encouraging hungry ramblers to get out and about to indulge in the centuries-old tradition of pancake tossing.

To make pancakes all you need is plain flour, salt, milk and eggs, and the ideal National Trust location to toss them in. So get baking, get outdoors and share your pancake creation images below.
