Do you love them or hate them?
(I'm talking about the pancakes here and not the cat!)
My kids adore them and will eat them at any opportunity, dredged with sugar, drenched in lemon, smeared with chocolate spread, coated with maple syrup (sometimes all at once!) and faster than I can make them. Which, I have to say, I'm not particularly very good at! The first one is always a massive failure. I never let the pan get hot enough for some reason and end up with an undercooked splodge!
I tried to palm the kids off with some of the chilled, ready made ones but they're just not the same. They're just big discs of flaccid, grey yuk.
For me pancakes are a bit of a non-entity really. A bit... meh! Which is mad because I adore yorkshire puddings! Tonight, just to be sociable mind, I shall partake of one little one. Delicately stuffed with cinnamon scented roast plums.
In fact sod the pancakes. I'm just having plums!
How do you eat yours?
