I am always astonished by the stacks pancake mix that are on sale. Also, last night in Asda there were piles of ready made pancakes for you to warm up. So sad!

Egg, plain flour, milk.

Butter in pan.

Sprinkle on cinnamon and sugur.

Squeeze quarter of lemon.

Serve.

What could be simpler?

Maple Syrup would be simpler....and very tasty too.

I love Nutella on pancakes.

A trend-setter or an eccentric? It's a very fine line...

An Englishman, a Frenchman and an Irishman were in a pub talking about their children.

'My son was born on St George's Day, 'remarked the Englishman, 'So we obviously decided to call him George.'

'That's a real coincidence, 'observed the Frenchman, 'My daughter was born on Valentine's Day, so we decided to call her Valentine.'

'That's really incredible, 'drawled the Irishman, 'Exactly the same thing happened with my son Pancake.'

same as Grumpy but replace the butter for lard, leave out the horrible disgusting cinnamon and drizzle a bit of golden syrup over the rolled up pancakes.

Another lard-user here. I will probably add some orange flower water to the batter itself. And swap those lemons out for lime.

Pancake 1: lime and sugar

Pancake 2: posh French butter and sugar

Repeat as necessary.

Sweetened chestnut puree is great on them too, but it's not very English...

everything is better with lard (when i am able to smuggle it in to the house)

and of course seeing as you have already made the batter for pancakes you might as well make another batch with the mods required to make a toad in the hole as well.

I see the "posh bint" has to have her foreign muck too

If you add some oil to the batter you won't need to keep regreasing the pan

I hate the ready made stuff, last time I used it all I got was pan-scramble :/

some other filling ideas which are quite nice are marmalade, lemon curd (love it!) and any type of jam.

Lemon curd, you say? This calls for a recipe:

Hmmm Lemon Curd – childhood hatred! usually spelled with with a 'T' around here – yuk

Ours will be savoury for main course – bolognese probably (pancakes rolled and stuffed) and then sweet – Maple syrup for me but the boss lady likes lemon, sugar AND golden syrup!

Standard recipe egg, flour, milk - (checked in the Radiation cookbook c.1955!)

My co-worker says "Koolaid Pancakes."

Apperently this odd delicasy is exactly what it sounds like, although he informs me that "you have to use the koolaid with the sugar already added."

JamesH: a man composed entirely of eggs, milk, flour and soft brown sugar.

I am absolutely stuffed to the gills, and I only ate six. 2x butter and caster sugar, 4x lime juice and sugar.

@liz and @ JamesH hmmm soft brown sugar - as a kid often spent holidays at my grand-mother's in Cornwall and a breakfast treat was; a thick slice of bread (freshly delivered by the baker) spread thickly with clotted cream and then covered in soft brown sugar - eat when the sugar has dissolved into the cream!

Oh and Liz - the boss lady is going to try your Lemon curd recipe!

urgh….made (sorry ATTEMPTED to make) pancakes today…

Made enough batter for a dozen pancakes…

Ended up with 2 edible ones! and a lump of congealed semi-cooked blob of pancake and plastic… I dropped the container with the mix into the pan while pouring!>_< D'Oh!!

So i gave up and had the 2 successes with a big bowl of bananas, ice-cream and golden syrup…

ooh! pink penguins in Stetsons tap dancing a fandango…

~(@_@)~

Think the plastic fumes are kicking in…

I normally make fluffy USA style pancakes (this recipe specifically), but on pancake day tehmizzus likes UK style pancakes with lemon and sugar. So I just use 4oz plain flour, 1 egg, 1/2 pint milk, & a pinch of salt. Bish bash bosh bob's yer uncle cor blimey gov'nor innit.

Speaking of pancake batter, anyone know why you have to let the batter "settle" for 30 mins before using it? Is that just an old wife's tale?
