Pancake Day! :)

Mum and I were having fun making pancakes earlier. We managed to flip them without any accidents. None stuck to the floor or ceiling this time. lol We had our lemons and syrup ready and really enjoyed eating them afterwards. :) 

I've included some pictures of our efforts. :)



  

  

... And they were yummy. :) <3

Mmmmmmmm.... They really look yummy! :-)

Did you ever try it with Grand Manier? That's my fav.

Oooh. Grand Marnier! Yuuuuum! Highly alcoholic, tastes like oranges. Pour it over desserts (or just straight over ice) if you can't get Cointreau.

*makes note on shopping list*

Oh I see, I don't think I've ever had it before. :)

(sorry, deleted and re-posted because it showed up in the wrong place) No problem. :D

Can I borrow your mum? Or you? Your pancakes look way better than ours!

My mum is a master at making pancakes. She puts it down to years of practice, mine were still a bit wonky and I left all the flipping to her this time. Last time my one ended up on the ceiling. lol :D

Hope they tasted as great as they looked!

but hmmmm, suddenly this year everyone seems to be observing Pancake day, more than in past years - maybe they did before but didn't like to talk about it *g*
I wasn't brought up making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and don't now - it is purely incidental that we had little pancakes (drop scones? pikelets in Australia...) for breakfast 'cos we often do...

They were lovely. :)

We've always made Pancakes on Shrove Tuesday here. Though I have noticed that more people have posted about it this year too. :)

Oh yum! Sadly, I didn't get to make any after all, as I was unexpectedly taken out for a curry. Which was also yum, but not quite right, somehow... :(

Oh dears, well maybe you could make some today? Call it late pancake day. :D We did that a few years back when my dad was working the late shift, so he could have some as well. :)

Mmm, lovely! :D I've never had lemons with pancakes. Interesting!! :)

If you squeeze some lemon juice on it and then sprinkle some sugar on it, you get this sweet and sour taste. :) It's pretty good and you don't need too much lemon for it too taste good. :)

I wish I did have pictures from the last time. lol XD

Ooh, you have cinnamon on yours? I've never tried it on pancakes, is it good? :D

It's heavenly! Especially if made as a lemon/cinnamon syrup.

Basically you put the juice of a lemon (or two if they're not very juicy) in a saucepan, with a tablespoon or two of water, a couple of tablespoons (or to taste) of caster sugar, a teaspoon of butter or marg and a teaspoon of cinnamon.

Heat on low til it comes to the boil and then simmer gently for a minute.

Happy pancakes (or crepes)! :D
