Shrove Tuesday is marked with a pancake race, raising funds for London's Air Ambulance. Tara Cleary reports.
REPORTER: Shrove Tuesday is Pancake Day in the UK and Londoners celebrated with a pancake race. The charitable event raised money for London's Air Ambulance and everybody had their own idea of what makes a perfect pancake.
PANCAKE RACER 1: "Cheese."
PANCAKE RACER 2: "Strawberry jelly."
PANCAKE RACER 3: "Lemon and sugar and roll it up."
PANCAKE RACER 4: "You can't go wrong with chocolate spread."
PANCAKE RACER 5: "My favorite is peanut butter and banana."
REPORTER: Pancake Day precedes Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent on the Christian calendar - and as it's a time of reflection, these ladies are contemplating the pancake toss.
If someone flips out, they suddenly lose control or become very angry. And to flip a pancake is to throw it in the air (the same as toss).
