Food: Ten Fancy-Great Pancake Recipes
Pancakes. What do you think? I think pancakes are super delicious and an all-round crowd pleaser in the breakfast department. I also like pikelets, the less glamorous but equally moreish cousin of the pancake. How about you?!
Growing up, we knew nothing of these fat and generous cakes of pan. We always had lovely thin crepes with lemon and sugar, or else smeared with homemade raspberry jam and cream. Pikelets were fat. Pancakes were thin. That’s just the way it was.
I’ve since had my eyes opened to the wide variations in this department. For instance, I’m very fond of Nigella’s plump pancakes, and my kids really like those hot cakes from THAT particular fast food place. My sister likes Bill’s fluffy ricotta hotcakes. And my boyfriend likes Aunt Jemima’s spongey pancakes fresh from the packet with lots of AUTHENTIC maple syrup. Varied no?
Today we’re not stopping at those simple kinds of pancake, though. Oh no. I’ve fished about the internet and found LOTS of other flat and fabulous recipes for you to try.
I give you pancakes. Cake your pan, peeps! How do you like your pancakes?
