Pancake Tuesday

I was on a promise to make pancakes for breakfast this morning. Not crepes, 'proper' thick pancakes (also known as drop scones)

So, when this morning hadn't quite dawned, I was eagerly reminded by a small pair of cold hands in the small of the back that today was the day and I had promised ...

Recipe for fool-proof, early morning friendly pancake mix:
  • 225g/8oz plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 25g/1oz caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 300ml/1/2 pint milk

Alternatively, Tescos have so many of the things they're selling them.

Our Home Economics teacher provided the staff with pancakes for break today. She's a gem.

That's the thing about Home Economists, they tend to be real salt of the earth, solid citizens :-)

They sound delicious...I will have to try them...

I remember my Home Economics teacher. She was one of my favorites.

I can't say that many schools here in the states have Home Ec anymore - at least here in Houston. Sad.

Pluto said...

My comments about Home Econ teachers was not a generalisation. I just pointed out that OURS is a gem ;)

Tesco, my friendly local supermarket of choice:


They do online shopping and home delivery, tho probably not to Houston to be fair.

Dana said...

I was thinking your Home Ec teacher was someone quite special to have brought in pankcakes. I mean, they are a gift of love...

Would her name be Ali? :)

It is much simpler to use 4 oz (100 grams)of soda bread flour 1oz of sugar 1 egg and enough buttermilk to make a thick creamy mixture. Did your Mum not teach you anything or did it just go in one ear and out the other!!!!
