  • Pancake Day!!

    I've just realised that today is pancake day!!!
    What mix do you use???

    I use 3 oz plain flour
    2 eggs
    pinch salt
    and 1/2 pt milk

    and sunflower oil ( out of stock in my cupboard- what do others use to fry??)

    Lemon juice and sugar are my favourite

    But I will do some stuffed ( rolled around) some veg too.

    I just use
    2 eggs,
    and some

    But when it comes to toppings, Golden Syrup is the bestest

      I'm like Scarey - couple of eggs, then add flour & milk til it seems about right!
      And I'll fight you for the 'Tate & Lyle's' Scarey

          I make two batches. First lot have chilli rolled up in them, then the sweet ones. I prefer simple sugar and lemon juice, LadyWayne has other stuff.

          Batter mix:

          3 eggs
          1/2 pint milk
          3 and a bit ounces plain flour
          Good pinch of salt
          Lots of whisking

          Practise makes us a little better, it doesn't make us perfect.

          What would Vedder do?

            i do 8oz plain flour, 2 eggs, 1 pint milk
            that makes 8 pancakes in a large frying pan - i have a ladel that's just the right size
            i always fry in lard - tried sunflower oil / butter etc but lard is so much better - nothing comes close to lard

            me and my boy love lemon and sugar - we sometimes have ice cream if we've got any in, but why have ice cream or golden syrup etc when we love the lemon and sugar?

              One thing I cannot make is batter - pancakes or yorkshires! But OH will have a good go, and I'm in the lemon juice and sugar brigade!! Mind you, I love crepes with mushroom in cream sauce, yummy!!
              Life may not be the party we hoped for but since we're here we might as well dance

                Mother saw a program where the cook used pineapple as a filling for the pancake, the closest she could get was pineapple jam so every year for the last 40 odd years we always have pineapple jam.

                  For those of us whose pancakes are very often not perfect ie not round or torn - why not try Kaiserschmarren - translates as Emperor's Mess?

                  Its basically a shredded, torn, sliced pancake topped with fruit puree and dried fruit such as raisins, currants, sultanas. Many recipes available on web.

                    We make a variety of pancakes, thick ones to be eaten with butter and maple syrup (like the Americans have for brekkies) and thin ones to enjoy with sugar and lemon. Golden syrup is reserved for drop scones (Scotch pancakes).

                    Another nice idea with thin pancakes is stewed apples and sultanas dolloped on the pancake then folded into quarters and served with cream or ice cream
                    Happy Gardening,

                              Savory is the same recipe my Mum used:
                              1 tin Corned Beef
                              1-2 tins baked beans
                              1-2 tins mixed veg (must be the one with swede in it!)
                              I know it sounds odd, but it really is lovely!
                              Pudding are either lemon and sugar or maple syrup and cream/ice cream.
