Re: Pancake day yay!

Just a question on this: when I was a kid, pancakes (and Shrove Tuesday) meant crepes. The small, fat ones were Scotch Pancakes. Is this normal or a product of my disgustingly South African heritage?

You are correct. Proper pancakes are very thin, made by rolling the batter around the frying pan. Those little fat things are Scotch pancakes.

I just enjoyed Hoosier pancakes, which are as wide as a proper pancake and as thick as a Scotch pancake. Just like most Hoosiers aren't.

So basically a kilo of cooked batter with butter on top?

I can reset the health-ometer by adding organic maple syrup right?

You could, if you wanted to go entirely colonial.

A proper Englishman, however, should add nothing more than lemon juice and a little sugar, regardless of the provenance of the pancake.

Some things are simply not negotiable.

Happy Women's day (what the heck?!)- but in my corner of the world pancakes are a man's domain. And they most certainly do not resemble crepes in any way, with all due respect to those delicious flour based delights. Pancakes are thick and fluffy. Saying they should be thin is like saying nori rolls should be made with tortillas. So sayeth the Yank, and pancake cooking/eating champion, Mud.

I guess I know who's making dinner tonight .

The Mediterranean colonies are almost home, so they don't count.

Now banned in the Mud household. Somehow I can restrain myself with Nutella but that stuff is like meth and crack and spreadable joy in a convenient non-breakable container .

The easiest is the Lemon juice.. just add water to lemon and sugar

Else you can try one of these!

Re: Pancake day yay!

IMHO, it's either a thick (English) pancake, or a thin (French) crepe (slightly different recipe. And of course there are also US style hotcakes (again, different batter).

Whatever, all three get made in my household, Belgian style waffles too

Just sugar most of the time, sometimes whipped cream, chocolate powder or maple syrup. Although I recently discovered Ovalmaltine crunchy cream, so must try that

Btw, wasn't the French 'Chandler' (not the same as Shrove Tuesday or is it??) last week?
