I am sure you are all sitting there right now stuffed to your gills with pancakes – okay maybe you are not but I am!
My husband is the pancake maker in our house but last year he was away and so on the way home from work I rushed in to the supermarket to pick up a packet of the ready-made mix – just add milk. They turned out fine and everyone enjoyed them but they are not quite as good as the real deal made from scratch.
This year I was looking forward to some freshly made pancakes but my husband announced at dinner last night he had to work late – he had a meeting at 5.45pm and would probably not be home until around 8pm.
Given my new status as temporary stay at home mum I thought I should try to make them myself this year. I made sure I had all my ingredients and fully intended to have the batter made in advance of dinner however this did not happen and so I was trying to make batter while making dinner.
To be fair it’s not exactly rocket science. A pile of flour, a pinch of salt, an egg and mix in milk. Done! The batter was a little lumpy but after one or two I got into the swing of it – even flipping a few much to the delight and amusement of my kids.
To top them off we had a selection of:
- Chocolate spread
- Cream (of the spray variety)
- Maple syrup
The two little ones just took them with chocolate spread and cream. My oldest lashed everything on and I took all but the chocolate spread.
My husband had a couple after he arrived home and was very complimentary. Better watch myself or I will get the job as family pancake maker. Maybe next year I will get some made for me.
How did you take your? Savoury or sweet? Traditional lemon and sugar or did you go all out with fillings and toppings? Do share if you’d like!
