Re: Pancake Day

As my other half is Dutch we made some savoury pancakes by first frying rashers of bacon in the pan then pouring in the batter. Once the pancake was cooked on both sides, I put some grated cheese on, folded the pancake over and cooked it for a bit longer to let the cheese melt before serving.

Another combination was ham and cheese.

For sweet ones we fried slices of apple before pouring the batter over. Excellent with lemon juice and sugar.

Cheers,

Nick

Re: Pancake Day

My pancakes were gorgeous although probably only to me as my fillings were rather strange

First pancake was marmite, second peanut butter and third nutella!!!

There's a machine for everything.

Did you see the banana slicer for CHF 1.90 in Migros a few weeks back? Mad!

Nope, but I can believe it. Now today for our pancakes "You Kay" style we have to squeeze our lemons (Not like Robert Plant, "Till the juice runs down our legs") but with some sort of device. The aforementioned expensive pancake maker, purchased a Philippe Starck designed, Alessi lemon juicer for about 100 Chfs and it's bloody useless.

Ah! Sounds like. I'm sure that's what I meant to say

You are so right about the gimmicks
