(This is a borrowed photo of someone else's pancakes)
Sometimes I think it is nice to have some comfort food. Today is SO dark and dull and rainy and horrible I made some pancakes for DH and I for lunch. They were SO yummy. I had mine drizzled with Maple Syrup and DH had extra butter, sugar and Maple Syrup. I couldn't take a photo because we ate them too quickly. SO DELISH!!! DH is now watching Westerns on TV and I am playing on my puter. He usually doesn't sit down for two minutes at a time, but he has a cold and I have told him to rest and not run today (I will believe that when I see it). So far it is working.
Here is the pancake recipe I used. It is actually a pikelet recipe from The "Central Cookery Book" (an old Tasmanian School recipe book). This recipe makes lovely pikelets to eat cold, but today I added more milk to make them more like pancakes and less like pikelets. It made 4 large pancakes. (My changes in brackets)
4 ozs self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt (I used a pinch of salt)
Nutmeg (I didn't add this)
5 tablespoons milk (I added more to make mixture less thick. I used skinny milk)
2 ozs sugar
1/2 oz melted butter
Beat egg and sugar (I used a whisk) and add melted butter and milk (keep whisking).
Sift in flour and nutmeg (and whisk till smooth).
Drop in spoonfuls on to a hot, greased pan, griddle or plate (I poured enough mixture in pan to make a pancake instead of smaller pikelets)
Turn when brown (and bubbly)
Butter when cold (We ate them hot with Maple Syrup)
Hope you are all well and happy.
