Bushey House Care Home has Flippin’ Fun Pancake Day

The staff and residents at Bushey House Beaumont care home in Chorleywood Beaumont have been flipping and turning pancakes all morning in preparation for their annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Day celebrations.

Bushey House Beaumont has marked this year’s Pancake Day with a pancake making master class a pancake flipping competition and of course, lots of pancakes! Avni Fejzullau head chef at the home, flipped more than 100 pancakes, serving them up with sweet and savoury fillings for all the eager staff and residents.

Avni said: “My secret to the best pancakes is all in the whipping. Give it some elbow grease when mixing the batter and you’ll get perfect pancakes every time. I like experimenting with the fillings – the residents’ favourites are spinach and cheese, chocolate spread and banana and of course, good old fashioned lemon and sugar!”

Ruth, a resident at Bushey House Beaumont commented: “I absolutely love pancake day, it takes me back to my childhood when my mother used to make us all pancakes and we’d all wait in turn for ours hoping the batter would stretch to another.  We’ve had so much fun reminiscing and sharing our favourite recipes for fillings.”
