Yes, I know that Pancake Day was last week, but I didn’t get any pancakes because I was sick.

As a child, we used to have savoury and sweet pancakes and I wasn’t a huge fan of them eaten with sugar and lemon juice so the savoury ones were my favourite, stuffed with, mince or if Ma was really busy and didn’t have time chicken in white sauce from a can, covered in cheese and baked in the oven.

This weekend, I made a batch and ate some of them with peaches, stewed apples and a bit of maple syrup for breakfast.DSCF4071

The rest I had for dinner last night, stuffed with mushrooms in a tomato sauce.


I use the Delia Smith recipe to make pancakes. You don’t need to leave the batter to stand but I always do and find that it works better that way. In fact, I’m wondering why I don’t eat pancakes more often!

Do you eat pancakes all the year round or just on Pancake Day?
