Flipping Hell

20 Feb

It is Shrove Tuesday this week. I love pancakes, I make them regularly.

I make two types of pancakes.

Massive, thick rubbery wedges burnt on the outside and raw on the inside (Jesus simulacrum optional)
Or negligible scraps that rumple up and break when tossed in the air. They usually end up being scraped onto a serving plate in bits:
This year however, I have bought a pancake shaker mix which I hope will revolutionise Pancake Day for me and my family. Following my success with the Mary Berry Christmas Cupcakes kit I find that ‘cooking-by-numbers’ is working for me!

Still everything made with batter tastes good when you spread it with golden syrup and lemon juice however you cook it, right?
This is absolutely my favourite pancake topping! What is yours?

Happy Shrove Tuesday flippers…

    I fear I outdid you. My pancakes, like my cooking, are appalling. For an instant they look edible in the pan then collapse into leathery shreds. The only meal I can cook is an all-day breakfast and my husband won’t let me near the stove because I’ve burn all his Le Creuset.

      Ah the ruined Le Creuset!? Yes I know it well.
      Thankfully we both have husbands who cook otherwise our families might starve.

      I hope you enjoyed your leathery shreds.

    Oh cripes. I managed the types in both your photos, and thought I was doing remarkably well!!

      Oh Rachel, maybe our way is the right way? Maybe all pancakes should be either raw and blubbery or scorched and scrappy?
      Everyone else is getting it wrong!

      Also, love the word Cripes.
      Thanks for reading xx
