I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

it was a pancake party...

(viewed 1761 times)

Research on pancakes taught me several things, but I stuck to the english traditional recipe of 2 eggs to a pint of milk and 8oz plain flour + salt. I used large free range eggs and organic whole milk. I also added 2oz of melted butter. Only one chef said use a blender, but I thought why not and was pleased I did - so much easier.

Lots of toppings
hot black forest
hot apple pear and cinnamon
melted choc
bananas
strawberries
dried cranberries
raisins
edit - missed out chopped walnut
and of course lemon
assorted sugars
golden syrup
honey

plus cream, greek yogurt and ice creams

don't know about stuffed pancakes but there were a few well stuffed people!

TOSS or TURN?

NEITHER - had 2 frying pans on my cooker and was making my first pancake in the smaller one, but it has straight sides so wasn't easy to turn so I flipped it into the bigger pan - a perfect solution!

Very in depth review there. Here's a question, do they test better if you make the misxture the night before?

Also... I never have anything other than sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice on mine - best way by far!

Viv says:

apparently as long as you make it earlier then starch is released and they are better


if you have never tried anything else- how do you know that is the best option?

i followed Helen and had the black forest mix with added fresh strawberry and I added cream

I'm a fan of sugar and lemon juice too. I never fancy anything else on my pancakes. Interested in your research though as I've never been much good at making pancakes. BS is very good at them though. I can't resist saying he's an expert tosser : )

Twiglet-they are so easy - just be confident and my frying pan to larger frying pan means 'tossing'is not an issue :)

rhys says:

Good question.

I just know, that's how! It's how nature intended :P

Everyone needs to tag photos pancakes 2010 or something!

There'll be no pancake blogging from us, we're out tomorrow evening. Maybe Wednesday...

Sometimes I'm adding beer in the batter (well not at the moment). It makes them very light. Also done it with champagne (leftover). Most of the alcohol is evaporated when cooking. Maybe tonight :)

I've tried other stuff and am a member of the lemon juice brigade.. but prefer no sugar

16th Feb 2010, 12:58

Viv says:

normally I would just be lemon and sugar or golden syrup but the branching out was good :)

I'm eating pancakes strictly in accordance with my rules tonight.

That's a crime!

Viv says:

how many did you have Beth?

16th Feb 2010, 19:28

bethmadethis says:

two!

16th Feb 2010, 20:07

Viv says:

Never even crossed my mind to use lemon on pancakes. I'll have to try it. Sugar is good, and I've had them with a lot of the fruit and nut toppings you've listed. Makin' me hungry!

Viv says:

well as you see lemon and sugar is probably the most popular in the UK
Let us know your thoughts

I've been craving pancakes since seeing this... and eaten them several times...
I guess they're healthier than other stuff I could be snacking on :)

21st Feb 2010, 22:41

Viv says:

yes -not too bad health wise

and you don't put sugar on them - so that's ok
