Feb. 12, 2013...Pancake Day also known as Shrove Tuesday in Britain and North America. Pancake day is the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. 'Shrove' - as in Shrove Tuesday - stems from old English word 'shrive', meaning 'confess all sins'. It is called Pancake Day because it is the day traditionally for eating pancakes as pancake recipes were a way to use up any stocks of milk, butter and eggs which were forbidden during the abstinence of Lent.

It's an overcast and cooler day here, so pancakes were on the menu.

 

A simple classic that makes a gray Sunday morning perfect.

 

I made these in a cast iron skillet, which led to a nice taste and conformity to the shape and size, which is great since they were being used for a photo. Generally though, I'm okay with mismatched pancakes.

 

Just a classic pancake recipe today, nothing fancy.

 

Ingredients:

- 1 & 1/2 of cups all-purpose flour

- 3 & 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

- 1 teaspoon of salt

- 1 tablespoon of white sugar

- 1 & 1/4 cups of milk

- 1 egg

- 3 tablespoons of melted butter

 

Directions:

01. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

02. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

03. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.

04. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.

05. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

 

Hope everyone has had a good day.

During the long cold winter months here in NE Ohio, it’s futile to think about gardening all the time! There are still many long months of cold and snow left (they’re predicting a few inches overnight). To keep myself from going crazy, I spend my winter months learning to do new things. I finally mastered sourdough bread, so now I’m learning to use sourdough in places besides bread, like muffins and pancakes. One reason I like sourdough is because the grains are soaked overnight, this is supposed to make them easier to digest and much more nutritious. On Tuesday morning I finally made my first batch of sourdough pancakes and they were a HUGE hit.

WOW!!! I got this from SeaSailing and it made my day!!! It's a huge A4 size postcard with pancake-cake recipe in Swedish. I showed it to everyone at work, it's such an awesome surprise! Thank you so much Paivi <3

It is also super fast and simple to make and, most importantly, is really very good. The simplicity of this recipe is ideal for those mornings when you are craving something special, but not hard to make.

Wanted to go all out for this breakfast. Fresh berries during December is a treat. Full on Winter.

Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe:

Ingredients:

- One cup of flour

- Two tablespoons of white vinegar (to sour the milk)

- ¾ of a cup of cow's milk

-¼ or a cup of cocoa

- Three tablespoons of white sugar

- One teaspoon of baking powder

- ½ of a teaspoon of baking soda

- ½ of a teaspoon of salt

- One egg

- Two tablespoons of butter (melted)

-Twelve-ounce bag of raspberries (by weight)

Method:

1. In a medium bowl, sift the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa,baking powder, baking soda,and salt); I sift my dry ingredients three times to have fluffy pancakes.

2. In a small bowl, combine the milk and vinegar; mix. Let stand for around five minutes to allow the milk "sour."

3. In another small bowl, melt the butter; add an egg and whisk together.

4. Combine the two wet ingredients and whisk together.

5. In the medium bowl of dry ingredients, add the mixed wet ingredients; mix well. I use a spoon and fold the ingredients until thoroughly combined.

6. Put your skillet on the stove and warm it up to cooking temperature. My personal preference is an old iron stew pot lid.

7. After the skillet is good and hot (your temperature), apply and oil so the "cakes" do not stick. Spoon out the batter, measured to the size of pancake you want, and pour into the skillet.

8.Do not cook the cakes too long; the key is too watch the batter rise as it cooks, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, the uncooked side will release air bubbles. As soon as this happens, "flap your jacks" (hence, flap jacks). Let the second side cook for a bit, and then, spatula them onto a plate.

Voila! Top the cakes/jacks with your favourite topping. The morning I cooked these, I had some left-over homemade fresh strawberry topping in the refrigerator.

I went to Walmart and when looking for some corn to make "Cachapas", (venezuelan pancakes) I couldn't resist to grab my phone and take some pictures; the best part of all this is to get home and work with my husband in this recipe:

 

Ingredients for 8 to 10 (cachapas) pancakes:

4 cups corn kernels, about 6 to 8 jojoto (corn) large, about 3 cups ground and, 3 teaspoons salt ¾ cup sugar ¾ to 1 cup water, depending on the corn is more or less sweet.

 

Preparation:

Cut with a knife grains of jojoto (corn) without reaching too deeply to avoid cutting the cob.

Grains are ground by a mill to grind corn is not too tight. The dough should be slightly thick and ordinary.

In a large bowl mix the dough with salt and sugar and water. The mixture should be thick consistency.

He begins to heat a griddle or skillet on the stove and when hot put over medium heat.

They grease the griddle with a paper towel with oil each time it is going to make a cachapa and a small ladle is poured into the griddle about ½ cup batter, spreading it around with the spoon until it forms a small cakes about 10 centimeters in diameter and ½ inch thick. In forming bubbles across the surface, flip with a spatula to cook the other side until golden. Approximately 1 minute per side. Served hot. Can be stored after cooling in the fridge for days. In this case can be heated by steaming or frying 1 or 2 minutes per side in a little butter mixed with an equal amount of oil.

The Simple but Perfect Pancake Recipe

This recipe is from King Arthur's All-Purpose Baking Book. They have a spongy texture and soak in the syrup.

 

2 large eggs

1 1/4 cups milk

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 tablespoons butter, melted or vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar or 1/4 cup instant malted milk powder (for diner-style pancakes)

 

Yields: 4-6 Pancakes

15 minutes 5 mins prep

 

Beat the eggs, milk, and vanilla until light and foamy, about 3 minute at high speed of a mixer (I do this step in blender and mix the rest in bowl with a large whisk).

Stir in butter or oil.

Whisk the dry ingredients together and gently, but quickly, mix into the egg and milk mixture.

Let the batter relax while griddle is heating (or overnight in refrig.) The batter will thicken upon resting.

Grease and preheat griddle.

The griddle is ready if a drop of water will skitter across the surface, evaporating immediately.

Drop ¼ cupfuls of batter on the lightly greased griddle.

Cook on one side until bubbles begin to form and break (this is the time to add anything like berries, choc. Chips, etc), then turn the pancakes and cook the other side until brown (turning only once).

With her round apple-face, big eyes and charm, French-born Hollywood star Claudette Colbert (1903-1996) was the epitome of chic sophistication. Her comedies It Happened One Night (1934) - for which she won the Oscar, Midnight (1939) and The Palm Beach Story (1942) are among Hollywood's greatest ever. After more than 60 films, she returned with great success to the theatre and was 84 years old when she won a Golden Globe for the TV mini-series The Two Mrs. Grenvilles (1987).

 

Claudette Colbert was born Emilie ‘Lily’ Claudette Chauchoin in 1903 in Saint-Mandé, an eastern suburb of Paris, where her father owned a bakery. Her parents were Georges Claude Chauchoin and Jeanne Marie née Loew. In 1906 her family emigrated to New York. Though she did some acting in college, her primary interest was fashion design. She studied fashion when she met the writer Anne Morrison at a party who offered the 20-year-old student a small role in her play The Wild Westcotts (1923) on Broadway. She started to use the stage name Claudette Colbert. After signing a five-year contract with the producer Al Woods, Colbert played ingénue roles on Broadway from 1925 through 1929. British actor Leslie Howard, with whom she had a brief relationship in 1924, encouraged her and persuaded his friend the producer Al Woods to put her under contract but, despite personally good notices, she did not get into a major hit until The Barker (1927) with Walter Huston and Norman Foster. In The Barker she played a duplicitous snake charmer. She and Foster, later a Hollywood actor and director, were married the following year during the play's London run. Their marriage remained a secret for many years while they lived in separate homes. In Los Angeles, Colbert shared a home with her mother Jeanne Chauchoin, but her domineering mother disliked Foster and did not allow him into their home. Colbert and Foster divorced in 1935 in Mexico. Colbert's first film, For the Love of Mike (Frank Capra, 1927), was made during The Barker's Broadway run. The silent film is now believed to be lost. She was concerned that silent cinema failed to utilise her melodious voice, one of her greatest assets. The advent of talkies changed her attitude, and in 1929 she signed a Paramount contract. Only two of her first 15 films - The Big Pond (Hobart Henley, 1930) and The Smiling Lieutenant (Ernst Lubitsch, 1931), both co-starring Maurice Chevalier - were better than mediocre. Then Cecil B. De Mille asked her to play Nero (Charles Laughton)'s unscrupulous wife Poppaea in the Biblical epic The Sign of the Cross (1932). Her performance was acclaimed, while her bath in asses' milk received immense publicity and has become a famous scene in Hollywood history. Columbia offered her the role of a spoiled heiress in It Happened One Night (Frank Capra, 1934). Colbert was initially reluctant to appear in the screwball comedy and demanded to be paid $50,000 - twice her usual pay - and that filming was to be completed within four weeks to allow her to take a planned vacation. Tom Valance at The Independent: “the role gave her the chance to work with Clark Gable, who had been forced by his studio, MGM, to do the film. Neither star initially expected much of the low-budget comedy which won five Oscars. Colbert was in fact boarding a train for New York on the night of the ceremony when she was stopped and rushed back to accept her Best Actress award from Shirley Temple.” The madcap comedy was a mega-hit all across the country. Two more big hits consolidated her status. She played the title role in the lavish but inaccurate Cleopatra (Cecil B. De Mille, 1934), then starred in Imitation of Life (John Stahl, 1934), a trenchant study of racial intolerance. It was based on Fannie Hurst's novel about a young widow who becomes a millionairess marketing the pancake recipe of her black friend (Louise Beavers). While the widow and her daughter move into society, the friend insists on keeping in the background, and when her light-skinned daughter, who faces exclusion and prejudice where her counterpart has privilege and opportunity, tries to pass for white and disowns her mother tragedy follows.

 

In 1935, Claudette Colbert was named one of the top 10 money-making stars, a position she was to hold again in 1936 and 1947. Fred MacMurray had his first major role in her next film, The Gilded Lily (Wesley Ruggles, 1935), and the two would go on to co-star in six more films. Charles Boyer, co-star of Colbert's next film, Private Worlds (Gregory La Cava, 1935), and not yet fully conversant with the English language, would also acknowledge the support he received from the actress, who won a second Oscar nomination for her performance as a psychiatrist in this grim story of mental illness. Wikipedia: “Colbert was a stickler for perfection regarding the way she appeared on screen. She believed that her face was difficult to light and photograph, and was obsessed with not showing the right side of her face to the camera, because of a small bump resulting from a childhood broken nose. She often refused to be filmed from the right side of her face, and this sometimes necessitated redesigning movie sets.” Colbert's first marriage ended in 1935 while she was making She Married Her Boss (Gregory La Cava, 1935). The same year she married Joel Pressman, a throat specialist and surgeon at UCLA, who remained her husband until his death in 1968. Colbert's role in Under Two Flags (Frank Lloyd, 1936), based on Ouida's tale of the Foreign Legion, was an unusual one for her, that of the tempestuous camp-follower "Cigarette" who sacrifices herself for love of a soldier (Ronald Colman). For the same director she starred in Maid of Salem (Frank Lloyd, 1937), an account of the 1692 witch-hunts in Massachusetts. Colbert never seemed entirely comfortable in period pieces, and both audiences and critics were happy when she returned to modern comedy with I Met Him In Paris (Wesley Ruggles, 1937) and Tovarich (Anatole Litvak, 1937), in which she and Charles Boyer were impoverished Russian nobility working as maid and butler in a Parisian household. Bluebeard's Eighth Wife (Ernst Lubitsch, 1938), with a screenplay by Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett, based on a 1923 Gloria Swanson silent film, was a disappointment. After a promising start in which Colbert meets Gary Cooper in a Riviera store where she is trying to buy pyjama bottoms while he is trying to purchase just the tops, it becomes contrived and frantic rather than funny. Zaza (George Cukor, 1939), in which Colbert sang several songs as a French music-hall star, was another failure. Then followed one of her greatest films, the Cinderella-inspired screwball comedy Midnight (1939), directed by Mitchell Leisen and brilliantly written by Brackett and Wilder. Colbert next appeared with Henry Fonda in the Western Drums Along the Mohawk (John Ford, 1939), her first film in colour, as a farmer's wife coping with rugged conditions and hostile Indians. Boom Town (Jack Conway, 1940) was one of her most popular films, due to its star-power of Gable, Colbert, Spencer Tracy and Hedy Lamarr.

 

Claudette Colbert cited as her own favourite film Arise My Love (Mitchell Leisen, 1940), set just after the Spanish Civil War. Tom Valance in The Independent: “it has some splendidly romantic, dramatic and comic moments as Colbert, playing a reporter, pretends to be the wife of a condemned soldier of fortune (Ray Milland) to save him from a Spanish firing squad, then inevitably falls in love with him. Brackett and Wilder's screenplay tried to keep pace with changing events in Europe (the story ends after the invasion of France) which resulted in some uneasy shifts of mood in an otherwise impressive work.” Better still was Henry King's warmly charming piece of Americana Remember The Day (Henry King, 1941), in which Colbert gave a glowing performance as a school teacher who while visiting a now-famous former pupil recalls the past and her sweetheart who was killed in the First World War. Preston Sturges' The Palm Beach Story (1942) is one of the screen's greatest screwball comedies and contains the sequence Colbert later cited as her favourite comic scene. Having left her husband to find a millionaire to finance his inventions, she is climbing into a train's upper berth when she steps on the face and glasses of a rich passenger (Rudy Vallee). During the Second World War Colbert's husband, Joel Pressman, became a navy lieutenant and she spent much time selling war bonds and working for the war effort. Two of her major films were effective wartime propaganda: So Proudly We Hail (Mark Sandrich, 1943), a tribute to the nurses in Bataan and Since You Went Away (John Cromwell, 1944), producer David O. Selznick's ambitious three-hour tribute to the families at home. Colbert considered hard before taking the role of the mother to two teenage girls, but it became one of her finest, most deeply felt performances, representing the women left to raise families while their husbands are at war. In one remarkably touching scene Colbert, who has taken a job at a munitions factory, converses with a refugee, now a naturalised American (Alla Nazimova). For the part, she received her third Academy Award nomination, but lost to Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight. She appeared in such mild comedies as Practically Yours (Mitchell Leisen, 1944), and tepid dramas as Tomorrow is Forever (Irving Pichel, 1946) with Orson Welles. Colbert and Fred MacMurray had an enormous box-office hit with The Egg and I (Chester Erskine, 1947) as a city couple trying to run a farm, but the slapstick (lots of falling about in the mud) was far from the sophistication Colbert purveyed so expertly. Three Came Home (Jean Negulesco, 1950) gave her a strong dramatic role as Agnes Newton Keith, a true-life American authoress captured when the Japanese invaded Borneo in 1941. Her scenes with Sessue Hayakawa (as the cultured prison camp commander) were memorable in a gripping film which was too grim to be a major hit. Colbert had appeared on radio regularly throughout her career, and in 1951 she made her television debut on The Jack Benny Show. Other appearances included The Royal Family of Broadway (1954), The Guardsman (1955) and Blithe Spirit (1956), with Noel Coward and Lauren Bacall. In 1951 she also returned to the stage, with a tour of Noel Coward's Island Fling (later known as South Sea Bubble). She went to Britain to star with Jack Hawkins in The Planter's Wife (Ken Annakin, 1952) based on the native terrorism being faced by rubber planters. The film was a hit in Britain. The following year Colbert went to France to play a mistress of Louis XIV in Sacha Guitry's lavish Si Versailles m'était conté/Royal Affairs in Versailles (1953). She returned to Broadway in 1955, replacing Margaret Sullavan in Janus, then in 1958 starred in a new play, Leslie Stevens's The Marriage- Go-Round. The play was a hit and Colbert won a Tony nomination. Her last film was Parrish (Delmer Daves, 1961), a soap opera in which Colbert played the mother of Troy Donahue. She continued to make Broadway appearances, among them The Irregular Verb To Love (1963), The Kingfisher (1978) and A Talent For Murder (1981), and she returned to the London stage in Frederick Lonsdale's Aren't We All? (1984) opposite Rex Harrison. For her television work in the mini-series The Two Mrs. Grenvilles (John Erman, 1987) she received a Golden Globe and a nomination for an Emmy Award. Claudette Colbert spent much of her time at the 200-year-old plantation house she and her husband had bought long ago in Barbados, and she also had a flat in Paris and an apartment on the East Side of New York. After three strokes, she died in Barbados in 1996 at the age of 92.

 

Tom Vallance in The Independent: “It is no accident, surely, that she flourished at that most European of studios, Paramount, home of Lubitsch and Chevalier, Mamoulian, Von Sternberg and Wilder. Her distinctive high-cheekboned beauty and the throaty individuality of her voice were complemented by superb comic timing and fine technical skill honed by an extensive apprenticeship in the theatre. She could be warmly compassionate in romantic drama but was unsurpassable in sophisticated comedy.”

After a promising start in which Colbert meets Gary Cooper in a Riviera store where she is trying to buy pajama bottoms while he is trying to purchase just the tops, it becomes contrived and frantic rather than funny. Zaza (George Cukor, 1939), in which Colbert sang several songs as a French music-hall star, was another failure. Then followed one of her greatest films, the Cinderella-inspired screwball comedy Midnight (1939), directed by Mitchell Leisen and brilliantly written by Brackett and Wilder. Colbert next appeared with Henry Fonda in the Western Drums Along the Mohawk (John Ford, 1939), her first film in colour, as a farmer's wife coping with rugged conditions and hostile Indians. Boom Town (Jack Conway, 1940) was one of her most popular films, due to its star-power of Gable, Colbert, Spencer Tracy, and Hedy Lamarr.

 

Claudette Colbert cited as her own favourite film Arise My Love (Mitchell Leisen, 1940), set just after the Spanish Civil War. Tom Valance in The Independent: “it has some splendidly romantic, dramatic and comic moments as Colbert, playing a reporter, pretends to be the wife of a condemned soldier of fortune (Ray Milland) to save him from a Spanish firing squad, then inevitably falls in love with him. Brackett and Wilder's screenplay tried to keep pace with changing events in Europe (the story ends after the invasion of France) which resulted in some uneasy shifts of mood in an otherwise impressive work.” Better still was Henry King's warmly charming piece of Americana Remember The Day (Henry King, 1941), in which Colbert gave a glowing performance as a school teacher who while visiting a now-famous former pupil recalls the past and her sweetheart who was killed in the First World War. Preston Sturges' The Palm Beach Story (1942) is one of the screen's greatest screwball comedies and contains the sequence Colbert later cited as her favourite comic scene. Having left her husband to find a millionaire to finance his inventions, she is climbing into a train's upper berth when she steps on the face and glasses of a rich passenger (Rudy Vallee). During the Second World War Colbert's husband, Joel Pressman, became a navy lieutenant and she spent much time selling war bonds and working for the war effort. Two of her major films were effective wartime propaganda: So Proudly We Hail (Mark Sandrich, 1943), a tribute to the nurses in Bataan and Since You Went Away (John Cromwell, 1944), producer David O. Selznick's ambitious three-hour tribute to the families at home. Colbert considered hard before taking the role of the mother to two teenage girls, but it became one of her finest, most deeply felt performances, representing the women left to raise families while their husbands are at war. In one remarkably touching scene Colbert, who has taken a job at a munitions factory, converses with a refugee, now a naturalised American (Alla Nazimova). For the part, she received her third Academy Award nomination but lost to Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight. She appeared in such mild comedies as Practically Yours (Mitchell Leisen, 1944), and tepid dramas as Tomorrow is Forever (Irving Pichel, 1946) with Orson Welles. Colbert and Fred MacMurray had an enormous box-office hit with The Egg and I (Chester Erskine, 1947) as a city couple trying to run a farm, but the slapstick (lots of falling about in the mud) was far from the sophistication Colbert purveyed so expertly. Three Came Home (Jean Negulesco, 1950) gave her a strong dramatic role as Agnes Newton Keith, a true-life American authoress captured when the Japanese invaded Borneo in 1941. Her scenes with Sessue Hayakawa (as the cultured prison camp commander) were memorable in a gripping film which was too grim to be a major hit. Colbert had appeared on radio regularly throughout her career, and in 1951 she made her television debut on The Jack Benny Show. Other appearances included The Royal Family of Broadway (1954), The Guardsman (1955), and Blithe Spirit (1956), with Noel Coward and Lauren Bacall. In 1951 she also returned to the stage, with a tour of Noel Coward's Island Fling (later known as South Sea Bubble). She went to Britain to star with Jack Hawkins in The Planter's Wife (Ken Annakin, 1952) based on the native terrorism being faced by rubber planters. The film was a hit in Britain. The following year Colbert went to France to play a mistress of Louis XIV in Sacha Guitry's lavish Si Versailles m'était conté/Royal Affairs in Versailles (1953). She returned to Broadway in 1955, replacing Margaret Sullavan in Janus, then in 1958 starred in a new play, Leslie Stevens's The Marriage-Go-Round. The play was a hit and Colbert won a Tony nomination. Her last film was Parrish (Delmer Daves, 1961), a soap opera in which Colbert played the mother of Troy Donahue. She continued to make Broadway appearances, among them The Irregular Verb To Love (1963), The Kingfisher (1978), and A Talent For Murder (1981), and she returned to the London stage in Frederick Lonsdale's Aren't We All? (1984) opposite Rex Harrison. For her television work in the mini-series The Two Mrs. Grenvilles (John Erman, 1987) she received a Golden Globe and a nomination for an Emmy Award. Claudette Colbert spent much of her time at the 200-year-old plantation house she and her husband had bought long ago in Barbados, and she also had a flat in Paris and an apartment on the East Side of New York. After three strokes, she died in Barbados in 1996 at the age of 92.

 

Tom Vallance in The Independent: “It is no accident, surely, that she flourished at that most European of studios, Paramount, home of Lubitsch and Chevalier, Mamoulian, Von Sternberg and Wilder. Her distinctive high-cheekboned beauty and the throaty individuality of her voice were complemented by superb comic timing and fine technical skill honed by an extensive apprenticeship in the theatre. She could be warmly compassionate in romantic drama but was unsurpassable in sophisticated comedy.”

We have a favorite pancake recipe that we use that can be found on allrecipes.com allrecipes.com/recipe/162760/fluffy-pancakes/. Sunday mornings are always a leisurely time with a big breakfast. My husband and daughter made a double batch of these pancakes this morning and were very patient with me while a grabbed a few quick compositions. We also had scrambled eggs, and roasted veggies too. Enjoy your day!

Fruity coffee pancakes

 

To make the crepes, mix the flour and salt then gradually beat in the eggs then the milk/water until you have a smooth batter. Mix in the melted butter and teaspoon of coffee granules.

Melt a little butter in the bottom of a frying pan - just enough to grease it. Wait until the pan is really hot before pouring in a little of the batter and waiting for the underside to cook before flipping and cooking the other side. If you want to attempt to toss the pancakes, use a frying pan with a curved side rather than one with sides that meet the base in a sharp corner.

 

You can keep pancakes warm by putting them on a plate balanced on another pan full of hot water, with the pan lid on top of the pancakes.

 

Meanwhile, to make the filling, remove the rind from the oranges with a zester. Cut off as much of the remaining pith as possible then slice in between each segment to cut the orange flesh into a bowl. Mix the orange mush, cornflour and honey and heat in a pan until thickened. Add the bananas.

 

Fold the pancakes into triangles and fill with the fruit.

 

Mmmmmmmmmmm :-P

Buttermilk pancakes with Meyer lemon curd and fresh berries

Pancake Recipe (feeds 2)

3/4 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

pinch salt

3/4 cup + 2 tbs buttermilk

1 egg, separated

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbs unsalted butter, melted

2 tbs sugar

 

1. Sift together flour, baking powder and baking soda and salt in a large bowl

2. Whisk together egg yolk, vanilla, butter and buttermilk

3. Whip egg white and sugar together with a whisk in a separate bowl until stiff peaks are formed (but not dry; they will be difficult to fold in)

4. Carefully fold wet ingredients into sifted flour mixture with a spatula. Fold in meringue into batter until no more streaks of whites can be seen. Leave batter to rest for 5 minutes

5. Preheat non stick frying pan over medium high heat. Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the surface of the pan with cooking oil

6. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, ladle batter onto the frying pan, leaving enough room to expand and flip over. (I fry 2-3 pancakes a time)

7. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and underside is well browned. Flip over carefully and cook remaining side until underside is browned.

8. Repeat with remaining batter. Keep pancakes warm in a 90C oven until serving

I still have photos from the beach shooting, but today I decided to upload my banana flour pancakes :) I had a whole kilo of banana flour sitting in the pantry, and I had to use it somewhere. So I did one of my favorite breakfast options....pancakes! :D You can check the recipe on my blog in this post: 'I would go vegan, but…'. Part I: fears (and a Banana pancakes recipe)

 

What do like having for breakfast? Although I love pancakes, I consider it indulging myself and I prefer eating something healthier, like granola with fruit and nuts or some kind of cereal like bukwheat, millet, oatmeal or even rice.

 

#11: I need to have a good breakfast. Eating in a hurry (or not eating) during the morning is enough reason for me to be in bad mood for hours.

Mardi Gras...Fat Tuesday...Pancake Tuesday....Shrove Tuesday....enjoy it all today..Lent begins tomorrow for many...

 

Feb. 12, 2013...Pancake Day also known as Shrove Tuesday in Britain and North America. Pancake day is the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. 'Shrove' - as in Shrove Tuesday - stems from old English word 'shrive', meaning 'confess all sins'. It is called Pancake Day because it is the day traditionally for eating pancakes as pancake recipes were a way to use up any stocks of milk, butter and eggs which were forbidden during the abstinence of Lent.

 

Yes, I made these...added some whipped cream (which quickly melted) and maple syrup and blueberries and got the shot just before they all fell on the table....But my hubby ate them anyway LOL

Blueberries - the last of the season? I decided to whip up some of these in lovely, fluffy pancakes. Recipes soon here

i've gotten to the point where i only come here for food now. i didn't get to have any of this though as i had an absolutely massive portion of chicken pad thai (£5!!!)

 

*also ALL my photos came out on this roll of film and nothing can ruin this day for me. i've managed to find the absolute best pancake recipe ever (literally, actually, really). www.hairybikers.com/recipes/fluffy-banana-pancakes/1703#R...

tips: use the egg yolks, do add the cinnamon and ignore their suggestion that you use "just a dribble" of syrup, because that's absurd.

This is now officially one of my most favourite recipes. Try them, you won't regret it.

 

I wrote about them here....

After I heard about Gingerbread Pancakes on stutefish's photostream, I thought they'd be super to try. So I googled and found a recipe, and tweeked it just a bit. It was soooo good. Even better than I hoped. Love the flavors and the lemon sauce goes surprisingly well.

 

Gingerbread Pancakes with Lemon-Nutmeg Sauce and Whipped Cream

 

Whipped cream isn't necessary, but very nice. Whip as much cream as you'd want beforehand and tuck in the fridge until ready to serve. I'm sure you could use canned whipping cream if you don't want yet another task to do. Next you're going to make the lemon sauce. This is served hot over the pancakes.

 

Lemon-Nutmeg Sauce:

1/2 cup sugar

1 Tbps cornstarch

1/8-1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1 cup hot water

2 Tbps butter

1/2 tsp grated lemon zest or lemon oil

2 Tbps lemon juice

 

In a medium saucepan, blend dry the sugar, cornstarch and nutmeg. This ensures the cornstarch doesn't clump. Gradually mix in hot water. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until mixture is thick and clear. Add butter, lemon zest and lemon juice, stirring until butter melts. Cover pot and set aside to serve hot when pancakes are ready.

 

Pancakes:

1 1/3 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp each baking soda

1/4 tsp each salt

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 egg

1 1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup molasses

3 Tbsp vegetable oil

 

Sift together flour, baking powder, soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon. In another bowl beat egg with milk. Beat in molasses, then oil. Add flour mixture and stir just until combined. To get the unform size to the pancakes, use a small laddle or 1/4 cup measuring cup. Cook pancakes in a nonstick or greased pan. We're lucky to have a big electric griddle so a bunch can be cooked at once. Serve with hot lemon sauce and whipped cream. Makes about 18 (3 1/2-inch) pancakes.
