Pancake Day!

Tra la la la it’s PANCAKE DAY!!!

YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!

Lovely proper pancakes all sprinkled with sugar and lemon, mmmmm.

Can’t wait til teatime. *rubs tummy and drools in anticipation*

Delicious pancakes are bound to cheer me up after my visit to the emergency dentist, ugh, ouchie. Hope my mouth thaws out in time! 🙁

Make Pancakes

I think Bill needs pancakes too, none of those strange American fluffy things he stuffed me with:

100g (4 oz) plain flour
pinch of salt
1 egg
300 ml (1/2 pint) milk

granulated sugar
lemon

Sift the flour and salt in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Break in the egg and beat well with a wooden spoon, then gradually beat in the milk, drawing in the flour from the sides to make a smooth batter.

Leave to stand for an hour if possible.

Heat the frying pan with a little oil and pour enough batter to cover the area needed. Cook until the top is dry, and then either toss or turn the pancake and cook the other side until brown and yummy and delicious looking.

Sprinkle with sugar, chop up the lemon and squeeze juice over the sugar layer. Roll pancake up and munch heartily while congratulating oneself on ones culinery prowess. Love the pancake!

Pancake Song

Mix a pancake,
Stir a pancake,
Pop it in the pan.
Fry the pancake,
Toss the pancake,
Catch it if you can.

~Christina Rossetti~

hee: apparently a Cornish Pancake Day rhyme:

Nicky, nicky, nan,
Give me a pancake and then I’ll be gone.
But if you give me none,
I’ll throw a great stone
And down your door shall come

Hope Greg chants that as he eats his pancakes. 🙂 Poor Gem.

    Only half? Judging from the lunacy that runs through your head I thought it’d be more. Sorry, my bad.
