The recipes include jam and cream pancakes, classic lemon and sugar pancakes, and a rather untraditional savory option of ham, leek, and cheese pancakes. This raised some eyebrows among fans, but many were impressed with the variety.

Many fans particularly liked the idea of having a dish that is fit for a Queen on pancake day. One fan wrote, “Thanks for sharing this will definitely make royal pancakes next time.” Another commented, “if lemon and sugar is good enough for Queenie, it's good enough for me!” 

This isn’t the first time that the royal family has decided to share special recipes from their own kitchens. At Christmas, the royal's Instagram page shared a step-by-step process that showed viewers how to make a traditional Christmas pudding. The family also shared images of them baking a Christmas pudding together in 2019.

The Royal Family also wished their followers a happy pancake day. They wrote on the Instagram post of their recipes, “Enjoy and we hope you have a peaceful #ShroveTuesday.”

So if you fancy dining like a King or Queen tonight, then you're in luck. The recipes are all free on their website and there is an easy link to follow on the royal Instagram page.
