    What are you having on your pancakes today? And, most importantly, are your pooches getting some, too?

    We're having them for main course and dessert :D

    Main course is prawns and haddock in a cheesy leek sauce with spinach, wrapped in a pancake.

    Dessert, we'll keep it simple with lemon juice and sugar.

    I was given this recipe for doggy-friendly pancakes: https://www.lilyskitchen.co.uk/lilyland/dog/recipes/pancake-recipe-for-dogs

    We can't get buckwheat flour, or cottage cheese, here, but I've tried making some with rice flour and they worked well. So they can have those with a bit of the fish filling. Lucky pooches :)

    Just had my pancakes - I'm strictly a lemon and sugar gal :D . Made them using half milk and half whey left over from making Greek yoghurt, and they were delicious.

    I'm not allowed to use her new range. It's only a week old and I might break it.

    I think the answer might be to walk Holly downtown and see if we can get pancakes at the pub!

    It's to mark the start of Lent. We make pancakes - proper ones, not those fake American ones, or foofy French crepes.

    we made "dropped scones" or scotch pancakes.
    Yum yum. Don't last long enough to get butter jam syrup or anything on them - hot off the griddle.
    Used to always burn them until I got an electric griddle,

    Might make crepes at the weekend - then its lemon and sugar for sure,
    Always a little one for Lilly x

    Wait a minute... I happen to love my (American style) pancakes, thank you very much. With butter and maple syrup, of course (Canadian maple of course).

    I know we talked about this before, but I still don't quite get what an English pancake is...

    An American pancake is very similar (if not identical) to a Scotch pancake.

    [​IMG]

    An English pancake is far thinner, larger and generally rolled or folded.

    A crumpet is something entirely different, and contains yeast, bicarbonate of soda and no eggs:

    NOOOO!!! Crumpets are for a half pound of salted butter (each) and, if you're really pushing the boat out, an inch of Marmite or Bovril on the top. :D
