Pancake playdough recipe with lemon peel
Roll, cut, flip and stack doughy rounds and enjoy your Shrove Tuesday's otherwise
batter filled day! Use the juice of a lemon as part of the doh's recipe
and freshly grated rind to add scent and texture to the surface of the dough
as it's moulded and served.
If you happen to grow lemon verbena in the garden, the leaves and a
pair of scissors add a new dimension to the activities.
