    Dinner or Pudding? 13th Feb 18 at 12:02 PM
    Do you have pancakes as you main meal on pancake day, or do you have a normal dinner first and then pancakes for pudding?
    Pancakes are so filling I don't know how anyone can eat them on top of a main meal, so for me they are dinner in their own right.

    I don't have pancakes on pancake day, never been that mad on them to be honest, the only place I would eat them these days would be for breakfast occasionally in the US

    I've never had pancakes for dinner, but I do like having them for tea

    Growing up they were always THE meal.
    Nothing more, just pancakes, served onto our plates, one by one as each cooked, until mum's mix bowl was empty.

    It was "tea" in our house. 5.30-6pm = tea time. The main evening/hot meal of the day.

    They're not a meal. I'd serve them afterwards.

    I also agree with the others .. its "tea" and was nearly the only thing we would eat (with maybe a pudding afterwards)

    Dinner is at dinner time .. tea is at tea time ... simple.

    Pancakes are for after tea (dinner) and pudding and bread & jam, at least that's the way it was when I was growing up.

    But of course I am in Scotland and our pancakes are different to the English one, they are smaller but thicker and according to my mum's recipe, a lot more sugar

    As for supper then its in the evening well after tea.


    The pancakes I've just cooked myself were lovely

    You can get vegan ones now, don't ya know. Made with soya milk, flour and a bit of oil. Never tried them myself, but would be interesting to know what they're like.

    The enthusiasts have just made a meal of them. (Although there will be an additional snack later on - they're teenagers...)

    Me, I enjoyed one as a dessert with Scouts, but that's pretty much their place in my life - an occasional treat.

    To me, breakfast is early in the morning, lunch is mid morning-ish, brunch is a cross between the two.

    Tea is a cup of tea with a sarnie and maybe cakes late afternoon. Dinner is the main meal of the day which for me is in the evening. Can be followed by desert ( posh version) or afters (my version).

    Supper is later in the evening and should only be had when you're really, really starving as eating late in the evening makes you fat

    As do pancakes
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.
