Pancakes have lost their allure in my house. Well, for me anyway. This is mainly due to the fact that Husband cooks them most mornings for the kids. They nag; he caves. I clear up the mess. Fear not though, we shall have them Shrove Tuesday with traditional jif lemon oozing from every pore.
My husband always makes the American style pancakes, akin to scotch pancakes in my opinion. I prefer the more crepe-style ones; thinner, bigger and for me, much nicer to scoff!
Of course, the recipe I use for mine is a Nigella one…simple, quick and scrummy. I always have them with lemon and sugar, but there is no end of possibilities. The kids go for chocolate spread or syrup but one of the nicest fillings I’ve had was cherry. Replicated by me via a can of cherry pie filling, warmed gently and spooned over the pancake. There was the temptation to add some squirty cream but then I remembered what it tastes of (nothing) so opted for without.
