    And it’s my daughters birthday too. So breakfast = pancakes, and I’m stuffed already!

    I’m glad we call it pancake day – I have a blind spot for the letter “r” and thought for yeaRs I could just go around pushing everyone out of my way for a day.

    Might give Emperor Pancakes a shot this year. My dad used to make them from a recipe in an old Mrs Beeton cookbook.

    First skin you rabbit then you separate the eggs and whisk the eggwhites then fold them in with the rest of the batter so that you get much thicker, airy pancakes. The as you cook each one you put it in a dish – lemon and sugar it – then add another on top and more sugar and lemon and another layer and keep going until you have something the shape and size of victoria sponge. Then you slice it and eat it like a cake

    Its Shrove Tuesday, I believe.

    Yes that’s right. That’s why I resurrected the annual Pancake thread as it’s Pancake day.

    Kids had the same but a variety of fillings, I’ve had to make do with 2 3/4 as ran out of mixture. Mine were lemon and sugar as it’s still the best.

    Sugar and Lemon

    I’m not a massive fan of savoury pancakes. Maybe I need to experiment more. For us it’ll be lots of sweet pancakes,

    Lemon and sugar,
    Nutella,
    Belgian chocolate sauce,
    Golden syrup,
    Caramel.

    Yummy 🙂

    *puts nutella on shopping list*

    Bananas & maple syrup as starter.
    Lemon & sugar as main course.
    Nutella for dessert.

    Don’t worry someone will be along in a minute to say they don’t buy into the marketing hype of Pancake Day and it’s all now too Americanised. You’ll feel better then.

    Mine only had them as I’m at work tonight and the Mrs can’t make them.

    Shreddies are evil anyway…it’s a lose-lose day for me. Better go to work I ‘spose.

    Made some coconut protein pancakes last night. With strained vanilla yogurt. Sounds healthy but they were awesome!

    “Healthy” wasn’t the first word that came to mind tbh.

    Or me even more so when you consider what’s in a pancake they’re hardly unhealthy.

    What the hell is that harryten?

    See, I’ve always been an eggs, milk, flour type. Is there any benefit to adding a bit of sugar to the batter?

    Lemon and sugar for me.

    Which makes me think of another thread that would go well to accompany this debauchery.

    I always think of a galette for savoury and save the pancakes (crepes) for sweet.
    As I think the kids have wolfed the last of the maple syrup it will be
    hobson’s choice of lemon and sugar

    Not 🙁 I’m on a diet

    All diets can be suspended for Pancake Day. It’s in the rules. 🙂

    We had ours yesterday as I’m at work today so no idea when I’ll get home.

    I bought some proper Maple syrup to try, damn that stuff is good.

    Indeed – Pancake Day marks the point where, traditionally, people give up diets for lent. Its also the point where all their other new years resolutions laps.

    I hope there’s some lemons and maple syrup left at my local Tesco…

    Not just on a diet but gym straight from work as well. Lunch = something hot, dinner (sorry tea, I’m a Yorkshireman) is 400kCal worth of sandwich so no time for pancakes 🙁

    I came this close to making exactly the same post as I did last year. 😆

    Not likely to manage any today but pre-empted on Sunday with rhubarb pancakes and soured cream for afters. Will probably make up for today by eating pancakes for the rest of the week.

    Woohoo! Can’t wait for Sjnr#1 to get home from nursery! It’s gonna be RAD! (well alright not rad but quite good).

    Read the first two pages of this thread before I realised it was from last year. Nearly made a fool out of myself by making a 26″ pancake rather than 27.5. And lemon and sugar – does anyone remember that? What was that all about?

    Scarfolk Council can be relied on;

    As well as the usual lemon + sugar + syrup and the banana + Nutella this year we’re going to try making masala potato dosas as the savoury option. My second favourite Christian food day (after Easter Eggs).
