  1. Only two days to the big day, how are you going to have yours and what's your secret recipe?
  3. i like cheese and chutney for savoury and golden syrup for sweet. the boys like honey.
    In my dream lactose tolerant house i would be having hot chocolate sauce, clotted cream, strawberry jam and ice cream - yum
  4. I am very traditional, on jif lemon day it has to be sugar and lemon ;D
  5. Im with Dubweiser anything else is heresy
  7. yep it's lemon and sugar here too,

    I'm a child of the 70's and my mother went to town on Shrove Tuesday, it was the only day we had pancakes and every meal that day as pancakes.

    It was the pancake lasagne that finally finished me off :-X
  8. American Pancakes (

    here's our (and Paradox's) favourite camping breakfast

    225g plain flour
    1 tbsp baking powder
    pinch of salt
    1 tsp sugar
    2 large eggs
    30g butter
    300ml milk
    butter for cooking
    blueberries, bananas,bacon, maple syrup, jam, golden syrup or honey

    1. At home mix the dry stuff together and put into a plastic bag. Put 30g butter into a separate plastic bag. Measure out 300ml of milk into a wide-necked bottle/container.

    2. When it's time for breakfast (10.30 -ish or if you've got kids 6am [​IMG] ) melt the 30g butter in a frying pan. Crack the eggs into the container with the milk and add the dry ingredients too. Add the melted butter. Put the lid on the container and shake like mad until everything is blended and a batter has formed. If there are any lumps get in there with a fork until the batter is smooth.

    3. The frying pan should be warm and have some of the butter still in it. Use a big spoon to add the batter to the pan. these are not like pancake day-pancakes, they are like the American ones!

    4. Once the pancakes have been in the pan for a few seconds add blueberries or chopped banana.

    5. When you can see some bubbles forming on top of the pancake it's time to flip!

    6. Turn the pancakes over and cook for about another minute, put the cooked pancakes into foil and cook the rest of the batter.

    We love blueberry ones with bacon and syrup

    We cook half of the batter and save the rest for the next day, but you could mix half of the dry ingredients, 1 egg and half the milk.
  9. i am so looking forward to pancakes.

    i am giving blood tomorrow and my post donation treat is a good quantity of gluten-free pancakes with lemon and sugar!
  10. Dove Farm flour works well and doesn't make it taste (or feel) like congealed glue
  12. I like Real lemon squeezed over the tablespoon++ of caster sugar and also like maple syrup and ice.c.r.e.a.m. Must remember to make the batter, cook um with melted butter too, got to wait till tomorrow now. :(
  13. Back in the day my old chap used to pour neat lemon or orange squash over his.
  14. I am going to make my batter today and let it mature, unlike myself :)
  15. this works and makes nice lacy pancakes not ones you could happily reroof your house with:)

    110g plain flour, sifted
    pinch of salt
    2 eggs
    200ml milk mixed with 75ml water
    50g/2oz butter, melted

    Beat slowly together, pour into a jug, cover and leave overnight. In the morning make the first pancake and feed it to the dog (it's never a winner) and off you go.

    K for anyone who posts a picture of their pancakes and extra k for pictures of pancake tossing (any other sort will be -K ;) )
  17. So the first pancake actually came out ok and was duly covered in sugar and lemon - is it my imagination or does this pancake look like a face on its side?!?


    Next up for a bit of variety we had strawberries and hersheys chocolate sauce. As much as I hate to admit it they were lovely BUT this is pancake day the remainder had to have sugar and lemon ;D


    Now the obligatory tossing picutes :eek:

    Sophie waited patiently below but it was a very sucessful toss, we didn't spill a drop ;)
  18. :) ta for the photos...loads of k given. How many did you eat then?
  20. No pancakes today as my girlfreind is sick so saving for when she is better so she can enjoy them as well not just me :)
