Pancake Day Celebrated Year Round at an Oregon Bed and Breakfast

What is Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day?

Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day, is a beloved and delicious tradition observed in many countries around the world on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, which varies from year to year. In 2024 Pancake Day will be celebrated on February 13th. The date changes each year based on the date of Easter, which is determined by the lunar calendar.

Pancakes are good any day of the year as is proven by the innkeepers of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild. Today let’s honor the pancake. Does the mere mention of pancakes send your senses reeling? A plate of steamy hot pancakes smothered with fresh berry compote can instantly lift your spirits and certainly can make your tummy happy.

Apple Pancakes with warm Apple Cider Syrup have become a guest favorite at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast and thanks to Ryan’s Hood River Juice Company for the Apple Cider Syrup recipe. In the Hood River Valley, known for its abundant apples and pears, this innkeeper’s been using a wonderful sourdough starter for the pancakes and mixing in one teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 cup grated fresh apple.

At the Carlton Inn Bed and Breakfast their farm fresh eggs will make their way into gourmet breakfasts at the inn like their Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

The Old Parkdale Inn B&B also serves hot-off-the-griddle Sourdough Blueberry Pancakes often throughout the year, made with fresh and frozen berries of the Hood River Valley.

Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast shares a fond childhood memory and a recipe for Swedish Pancakes she serves at the inn.

And then there’s Dutch Baby Pancakes. Reserve your room today and ask the innkeeper what their signature pancake recipe is and maybe, just maybe, if the fruit they use is in season you’ll be treated to awesome pancake goodness.

Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild Innkeepers sure know how to create pancakes that are tender, light and oh so tasty. Fresh local ingredients like crispy Hood River County Apples or sweet Willamette Valley Berries or fresh peaches picked up at a weekly farmers market make these unique ‘cakes’
