Don’t ignore pancakes, get flipping

Today’s the day but it seems that two thirds of us will be ignoring the traditional mayhem of batter that is Shrove Tuesday.
But why? They really are cheap and easy to make, the toppings offering endless possibilities or keep it simple with lemon juice and sugar.
Forget the ready made variety, the video clip below is everything you’d ever need to produce the perfect pancake.

How To Make English Pancakes
Just thinking about them has made me come over all nostaligic for the old Dutch Pancake House. OK it was stuck in a time warp with the strange decor but it was an example of the city at its best with its quirky one-offness.
Crepes just aren’t the same.

  1. These English pancakes are very similar to Swedish pancakes that my auntie would fix for us. Everyone in my family absolutely adores Swedish pancakes. There are many choices for what to serve them with- They are excellent served warm, sprinkled with sugar and topped with lingonberry preserves. When I lived in Seattle, it was popular for the children to top them with a rainbow sherbet. My brothers and sisters like the old fashioned American way of using maple syrup. Personally, I like them best either topped with raspberry or strawberry preserves, or applesauce!
