• another gumamela (hibiscus) item!


Newer Older

This pic is for Lynn, who also made pancakes last weekend! I used my basic recipe (Cook's Illustrated -- love their books!) and whipped up the whites for fluffier pancakes. Had to do that manually but it was just 4 whites so -- pretty easy.

I'm not too happy with the pic, I would have wanted more syrup on the left side but this was the only one I took before I was asked to sit down with the family to eat. (This means expect another pancake pic soon hehehe!)

Pre-scooped the whipped butter at home and froze overnight for easy transport in the coolers. Of course once we got there it was moved to the refrigerator!

Me in the middle, Sunshine Hanan, and 73 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    MMM does pancakes looks delicious. Have to try and make some of my own real soon...

    Too bad about the syrup but it doesn't bother me. My eyes keep going back to those fluffy pancakes.. :-)

    This picture is beautiful!!! And I love pancake pictures, lol! I see what you mean about wishing the syrup was a more on the left, but honestly that didn't stand out and annoy me at all (and things like that tend to stand out and annoy me, lol!)

    Thanks all!!!

    Lynn, I asked my hubby to pour the syrup onto the pancakes, then clicked after a couple of seconds. He was a good sport (considering he wanted to eat already) but I should have been more specific with my instructions :P

    tednmiki: There are heavier ceramic plates but for eating outside we used the melamine? heavy plastic ones? with summer-y prints, this is the print I like best hehe.

    h20katcher: Thanks, and you're welcome! I ought to reserve an entire weekend just to go through everyone's photos here, I haven't done that yet! :D

    Weetniet: Get your whisk, a couple bowls and go! :D

    Thanks, Heather! :)

    Thanks minimommyv, I just go medium heat and use a clean pan that I wipe with a buttered paper towel, maybe that picks up the pancake batter pan residue?

    Hi. I hope you don't mind. I have used this photo to illustrate a short story I wrote. It is linked to this photo page.

    Your photo is almost good enough to eat.
    The pancakes are light looking with just enough of a tan, and pouring the syrup makes it so right. Also the setting, using that attractive plate...caps it all.
