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?
I'm very tempted to red blob you for that.. I'll go easy on you this time considering your recent achievement here.

Happy Women's day (what the heck?!)- but in my corner of the world pancakes are a man's domain.
I guess I know who's making dinner tonight .

Yes I agree, Man make better pan cakes than women ! So in that sense they certainly are a man's domain!

I have already mailed my man, on what he should be cooking tonight

Is this true?? I always had you down as being more British than the British!

However, English pancakes should not be thick ... but, rather, quite thin, golden brown and just going a tiny bit crispy around the edges. Then folded into quarters and served with caster sugar and fresh lemon wedges.

Re: Pancake day yay! [2011]

Sorry but, as yummy as those luscious thick thingies in the bottom picture, oozing with syrup, look ... they are not () what I call real pancakes!

In fact, my mother used to make something like that and I am sure that she called them drop scones.

Aren't those simply blinis? What are you on about, guys?

Ok ok, I think healthier would be replacing maple syrup with hummus. Aaaaahhhh, jayzum. But if it's pancake day, I won't refuse them for dina, yum. Or waffles? Do those count?

No , it's hard to believe you, can you make those real pan cakes that are quite thin, golden brown and just going a tiny bit crispy around the edges. Then folded into quarters and served with caster sugar and fresh lemon wedges. I can come for tasting

Re: Pancake day yay! [2011]

For me, crepes are very thin English style pancakes. Therefore, English pancakes are slightly thicker. American style pancakes are smaller in diameter and a lot thicker and are similar to Scotch pancakes and drop scones.

An english pancake is at its best served with loads of lemon juice and sugar. I however, cant be arsed to faff around folding into triangles. I roll them up like a sausage shape, cut into and 4 scoff

A little lemon and a little sugar - simpler is often best.
