Pancake Day

Despite what I said about wanting to cook more with Spider I have ducked out of the question of whether he’s old enough to make pancakes by being ill. Fortunately his Grandma is a champion pancake maker and kept him occupied for most of the afternoon watching her make the batter and flipping pancakes.

I was more than happy to submit to a bit of mothering myself and wolfed down 4 pancakes with traditional jiff lemon and caster sugar.  A blog I like a lot was discussing the merits of toffee sauce versus lemon and sugar and although I agree that lemon and sugar is the best, I have been longing to try a recipe I saw in the observer several years ago. Hugh Fernley Whittingstall made pancakes with a banana and toffee sauce for Lyn Barber. All you needed for the sauce was some milk and half a packet of chewy toffees…unfortunately the packet of wherthers original that was in the fridge appears to have been slowly disappearing…

  1. I have that problem, if I ever want to cook anything with Werther’s originals, I eat them all before I get a chance to use them.
