Just found out tomorrow is the best day of the year if you love pancakes and boy do my little ones love flipping them.
So lets have some fun.
What is your fav toppings
How do you flip them in the pan
or do you cheat and buy premade?
I love them with lemon and maple syrup
Kids love jam and peanutbutter with Bananas not sure but they eat them or Ice cream and chocolate sauce
I flip them and if the kids help have the pre made on standby depending on how many we loose to the floor,ceiling, brothers head or where ever

Bought a nice new nonstick frying pan from Ikea yesterday in readiness (2 quid - I kid you not).
Plain and simple with sugar and lemon juice for me.

Try Lemon Curd,
When you get them off the ceiling, wall, floor, away from the dog etc etc.
It tastes quite good with all the dog hairs and gritty bits.

Oh, I love pancakes. Flip them properly in your nice non-stick pan. It helps to be really co-ordinated I find, hence so many of mine end up on the floor, dog, fridge, sink, etc Always make far too much mix in readiness!
Top with lemon juice and sugar. Or maple syrup. YUMMY

might sound a bit silly this, but how do I make the pancake mix?
Been cooking since I was about 15, but never tried making pancakes, might as well give it a go...
Any offers folks?

Every pancake day, we resolve to make pancakes at other times during the year as they're great. Every year, we never quite get round to it and thus it's always a pleasure when this day rolls around again.
For me, simply pancakes, lemon juice and proper brown sugar.

Favourite toppings? How can anyone think of any more than lemon and sugar on the pancake tomorrow?
OK, I admit that in the fine restaurant in Cambridge that specialised in such things (Hobbs Pavilion; does anyone know if it still there, on Parker's Piece?) I much enjoyed dark chocolate with home-made ginger ice cream, but surely Shrove Tuesday tradition dictates the delicious juice of real lemons with sugar just to take off the bitter edge?

Yum Yum. Old Christian way of finishing up the goodies before Lent.
The Dutch often make them with bacon; personal favourite is bacon and stewed apple, 'tho fresh squeezed orange/lemon/lime juice is nice.
On a diet this year so giving it a miss

With maple syrup, properly smoked streaky bacon and a fluffy pile of scrambled eggs.

Sorry, you have been mis-led by a common language problem. An American/Canadian Pancake is 4" in diameter and up to half an inch thick and is eaten at Breakfast. A British pancake is 8 - 12" in diameter, one eighth of an inch thick (or less), crispy at the edges and is eaten more or less straight from the pan at tea time on Shrove Tuesday thereby ruining dinner the same day. The traditional additions are caster sugar and lemon juice sprinkled on the surface before the pancake is rolled up and eaten in the fingers or from a plate with a fork if you are posh.
Cointreau, flamed works well, too.

thanks Skylark4 I forgot that there are those who see the pancake like that but I am sure even the thin Crepe would be tasty with those toppings, my youngest would agree!
Thanks for the flamed had one full of soft fruit and flamed with a cointreau at a friend's house with dusting of icing sugar mmmmmmmmmm

Cinnamon, brown sugar and a squeeze of lemon. A little lemon zest in the batter makes a huge difference as well. Serve two or three still hot and rolled up with a dollop of vanilla ice cream on top.
Flour, melted butter, eggs, milk, pinch of salt, lemon zest.

We love them so much (home made variety that is) that we had them instead of Christmas pudding - Xmas 2004.

Rosalina cooks pancakes for breakfast every Monday, so I had mine yesterday as usual. I usually have them with honey, but you can't beat a topping of Tate & Lyles Golden Syrup in my opinion.
