Pancakes, Economics & Debt

Posted by

IN CELEBRATION of Shrove Tuesday, some Christians (and many indulgent atheists) cook pancakes. The tradition derives from the practice of using up all the fat in the cupboard in a great binge, before the 40-day fast of Lent began. To honour this we have constructed a comparison of the costs of pancake ingredients across the world from data compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit, our sister company. Delia Smith, a British cookery writer, recommends the use of 110g of sifted flour, 2 eggs, 200ml of milk and 50g of butter to make 12-15 pancakes. Roughly scaling this up by ten shows how expensive a generous pancake party (consisting of around 130 pancakes) might be. The data are all from cities, and so should be taken with a pinch of sugar and a squeeze of lemon.
