OK then, so who's having pancakes tomorrow? And what's your favourite pancake filling/topping?

I will be having some as DH is out for a meal with his workmates tomorrow night so I will make some for me and Daniel. Sugar and lemon for me - yummy :)

Perhaps I'm over - indulgent, but I like golden syrup or chocolate chips!

DS & DD bought some Ben & Jerry's ice cream at Waitrose today to put on their pancakes tomorrow - far too sickly for me. Just a little sprinkling of sugar and lemon is how I like them :)

Made `em already for DD this morning, she likes just sugar. I don`t like pancakes at all - so none for me. DH was still in bed so none for him either!

Sugar & Lemon is a very british thing for on pancakes... I like mine with sugar & lemon too.

I like sugar and lemon too, but my favourite is golden syrup yummy :thumbsup2
I got this great pancake mix yesterday, it's in a plastic bottle and you just add milk and shake it up. I think it was made by the same people who make the squeezy lemon things :scratchin

I love raisins in mine and lots of butter

02-28-2006, 06:00 AM
i love sugar and lemon too, yum!!

02-28-2006, 06:06 AM
I'll go with maple syrup - we bought some in Canada a few months ago and haven't got around to trying any yet, plus we still have some wicked stuff from Vermont... :goodvibes

DH is sticking to lemon and sugar. The lemons are home grown (small tree in the conservatory) and amazingly sweet - I might even be tempted to try some! :teeth:

I was lurking because I need to post and saw this and was intrig pixiedust: ued :scratchin What is Pancake Day it sounds really fun. And by sugar and lemon do you mean lemon curd or just a squeeze of lemon juice?? Well anyway, Happy Pancake DAy!!!

02-28-2006, 01:54 PM
Sugar & lemon for me too.
I've just had four large pancakes, I don't have any willpower.

Pancake Day (or Shrove Tuesday) is the day before Lent starts. Traditionally many Christians have given up foods during Lent. These rich foods are used up on Shrove Tuesday. I've certainly used up plenty today :rotfl:

Lemon juice and sugar for us too. (A few years ago at Assp DD was delighted to discover the lemon wedges - intended for cups of tea - which she squeezed onto pancakes and waffles for breakfast!)


02-28-2006, 02:42 PM
Just had mine with lots of lemon juice and a teensy sprinkling of sugar :thumbsup2 Have done really well on my diet this week so fingers crossed I haven't just undone all my hard work ;) Tomorrow morning will be truth-time :eek:

02-28-2006, 03:03 PM
Went for a run after work, so I don't feel too guilty about having the two pancakes with sugar and lemon juice :thumbsup2

02-28-2006, 03:13 PM
I ate 5 pancakes after tea before my parents made me stop. Just as well; they probably ate the rest of the batter.. LOL

This is really interesting. I'm Catholic and Irish/Scot by hertiage (all 4 Grandparents from Scotland & Ireland) and I never heard of pancake day. It sounds like a fun tradition and one I think my family will adopt.

Did someone tell you a lot of towns and villages have pancake races through them. A group of people run as fast as they can tossing the pancakes as they go. They do round here in the Midlands anyway, after the snow we've had the last couple of days maybe not so many people were doing that this year! We need some :sunny:
