pancakes by Merekat (2.00 / 0) #3 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 04:02:53 AM EST
I ate pancakes yesterday. And on Saturday. Several times a month, usually. Proper thin crepes.

Yum.

Do you know why yesterday was pancake day? by lm (2.00 / 0) #4 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 04:05:00 AM EST
The old style fasting rules required abstaining form meat, meat products, fish, wine, oil, milk, and milk products for all of Lent.

So people would make tons of pancakes to use up all the milk, oil and butter in the house.

Apparently you forget that some of us live in modern liberal democracies with proper seperation of Church and State and, consequently, do not have religious instruction in state run schools.

lemon juice ? by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #5 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 04:06:16 AM EST
I mean, I know I've seen in some mixes the suggestion to add powdered sugar and lemon juice for "extra fluffy" pancakes, but I usually don't bother with it..

(Of course, I've also ground oats to make special pancake flour, and tend to use buttermilk more often than normal milk.. I shy away from mixes, and like to make my own batter from scratch..)

lemon juice is a traditional topping for pancakes, rather than an ingredient.

We do pancakes a little differently by squigs (4.00 / 2) #7 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 04:13:44 AM EST
Not sure how the recipe differs exactly (do you add baking powder?) but American ones tend to be thick airy pancakes, served with maple syrup. 

Maple syrup is expensive in this country though.  And our pancakes are thinner made from a more liquid batter (crepes really).  Traditionally we sprinkle sugar and lemon on them, and roll them up.

Maple syrup's expensive everywhere. by ambrosen (4.00 / 1) #8 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 04:26:24 AM EST
We just don't have the tradition.

Mainly it's just more eggs and thicker flour that makes American style pancakes (which I prefer slightly), but baking powder makes a touch of the difference.

Mmm, sugar and lemon.

I had tasty american pancakes baked for me by C (clink, no story). They rocked with Lemon, Sugar and a small tub of Tescos finest vanilla icecream.

KICK ASS.

Fat Tuesday is better known as Paczki Day. by calla (2.00 / 0) #9 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 04:53:22 AM EST
A paczki (“Poonch-key”) is a Polish donut. It uses a richer batter than traditional donuts. These donuts are traditionally filled with raspberry or prune filling.


I had traditional Scottish pancakes by Rogerborg (4.00 / 4) #11 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 05:36:11 AM EST
  1. Make pancake batter.
  2. Pour batter.
  3. Shallow fry to make pancake.
  4. Dip pankake in pancake batter.
  5. Deep fry.
  6. Repeat, layering with Mars Bars to taste.

Firstly, by ambrosen (4.00 / 3) #14 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 06:06:14 AM EST
there is no such thing as Scotch. There's either whisky or drain cleaner.

Secondly, you forgot to deep fry the whisky.
