Pancake Day

Hooray it is pancake day and I do love a pancake or 3.

The secret is getting your frying pan very hot with oil then pour off the oil to leave just a very small amount coating the base. then not too much batter about a couple of tablespoons full.   The first pancake is usually unsuccessful because the pan is not really hot enough but after that the pancakes will get better. 

Personally I love them with lemon and sugar.


  1. jummy pancakes!!!! we've been eating them for the last couple of weeks

  2. Lemon and sugar, very English... I love cinnamon in mine, but also like savoury fillings. Didn't make any this year, I need to be in the mood for this! Lucky Sue greeted us with pancakes at bible study group so we didn't miss out compeltely.
