Pancake Day 2011

It is that time of year again...I have no will power so I have never observed Lent or giving anything up for Lent but I am partial to a Pancake or two.  This year I had two able assistants and they did a good job, both with the making and the eating.

We eat our pancakes with sugar and lemon...Mmmmm
Basic Batter Recipe - Ingredients for making about 8 pancakes (More if you use a smaller pan)
4oz (100g) plain flour.
Half a Pint (250ml) of milk.
1 Standard Egg. (Size 2)
Pinch of Salt (half teaspoon)

I have got a favourite small pan for pancakes, I use vegetable oil and heat it until it smokes.  Then I drain off the excess oil into a cup and swirl around some pancake mixture into the hot pan.  I cook it until it looks set and little holes appear in the pancake.  I did try tossing, but the dog gets in the way so it was safer to flip!  Both of my sons ate until they lost count!  When they were fit to burst they generously let me have a couple.  They experimented with cream, then butter, but both returned to the traditional sugar and lemon juice.  My youngest said 'Pancake Day was the best day of his life'.  I like kids that are easy to please :)

I appreciate and enjoy reading all of the feedback from your comments. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and sharing your thoughts. Sadly I have found it necessary to enable word verification, something I was trying to avoid...but I am receiving an unmanageable deluge of Spam! We don't want that do we? xxx :)
