    Pancake Tuesday

    Are pancakes such a big deal in the UK as they are over here today?

    OH went out and bought a pancake maker in Aldi!

    Are you an old fashioned sugar and lemon juice type or are you into more exotic blueberrys and ice cream person?

    Golden syrup in our household tonight, that's what my children like on pancakes. It was a special treat for DD (6) who is usually not allowed any sugar as she has a tooth which grew without enough enamel on it. So tonight there was lots of toothbrushing.

          The picture looks more like American style buttermilk pancakes than our traditional style. I can't imagine a special appliance to make traditional pancakes.

          Personally speaking, I agree with Britchic that golden syrup is the order of the day and the only proper pancake accompaniment.

          Locally, pancakes are less in the news than the traditional Shrovetide tuesday football match in Ashbourne between the uppards and the downards. It goes on throughout the whole town which is boarded up in preparation, traditionally spends a lot of time in the river and lasts 2 days. Last I heard the score was 0-0 so far this year but it's probably only just drawing to a close for today and goals tend to come later in the evening so I may be out of date.

            Hi Tom, The old fashioned type on Shrove Tuesday here, but I am not opposed to blueberries and ice cream at other times of the year as long as they are extremely thin like a crepe.

                      Looks like another gadget to join the George Foreman Grill to me.

                      All I need is flour, eggs, milk and salt. Whisk together to the consistency of double cream and leave in the fridge for half an hour. Heat a non-stick frying pan with some butter in it and cover the bottom with the mixture. After a couple of minutes flip it over and brown the other side. Fold up and put on a warm plate to serve with sugar and lemon juice.
                      The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

                        I cheated this year....there was a sell- by- date of a Gressingham duck with pancakes and sauce.....going really cheap, so I killed 2 birds with one stone, so to speak- we had crispy duck and pancakes with it! It was brilliant, too....

                            Those pancakes are far fatter than ours more the American style , we have had pancakes on Shrove Tuesday in our house as far back as I can remember but no syrup, a sprinkling of sugar and and a nice squeeze of lemon juice. CG

                              Our local restaurant, normally very quiet in Tuesdays, held a Pancake Night, and was packed. The menu consisted of eight savoury pancakes and eight sweet ones, and the dinners could choose five of them for £19. The six usual suspects (Daughter and Son-in-law, his parents, and us) had a really good time, except we left around 9 pm as Alan was in danger of falling asleep due to jet lag. Judith
