Re: Pancake Day

I was just about to say they forgot to add baking soda to the mix then I realized they're not making Pancakes (despite his wearing a Pancake Man t-shirt) they're actually making crepes..!
Now I'm getting hungry...

You must be American!

In the civilised world we don't add a raising agent , I'll take my pancakes just how they were cooked on the video

BTW, cool clip. Maybe we should have a poll, thick or thin pancakes?

It has been so long since I have made pancakes that I have forgotten what I but in them.

I don t think I ever put baking soda in them though. . . .I would be interested to try it just to see what happens.

I will give a vote for thin crispy pancakes

Re: Pancake Day

Here is a good article on Wikipedia about --> pancakes
I love both pancakes and crepes but the whole point of pancakes (take note of the word cake in there) is that they are meant to rise like a cake in an oven would.
So it's very simple: No baking soda, it's a crepe. With baking soda it's a pan"cake".

Damn right.

Instead of the usual stuff that you put on a pancake, sugar and lemon juice works very well, too.

Here's a local variation that's worth a try: Wikipedia reference-linkKaiserschmarrn

Crepes, thick pancakes, thin pancakes, etc. are all part of the "Pancake" family. I don't recall putting a small boy called Jack in the ingridients last time I had flapjacks

However you like them pancakes are a joy to life and should be enjoyed in whatever fashion you wish. Whether they are like a cake or as a wrap around some fresh fruit. All I can say is, enjoy!

Unless you're French.. then it's all part of the "Crepe" family.

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.

Pancake maker. Decription. A wife and a frying pan. Cost (over the years) Countless thousands.
Why didn't I see the one for sale, above, years ago?
