Pancake Day 2011

Pancake Day celebrations made their way across the Atlantic this past week. Americans reading this post are probably more familiar with Mardi Gras celebrations, but in our apartment, we celebrate Pancake Day. For those new to this holiday, it doesn't refer to typical pancakes made with the likes of Bisquik, but instead pancakes that are more of a crepe like consistency. I used the classic recipe Delia's Basic Pancakes with Sugar and Lemon from my copy of Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course. Enjoy the pictures and a movie of our pancakes. Happy Pancake Day!

Frying up some pancakes in butter!

Rob helped with the pancake flipping. He's quite good.

Then we sprinkled the pancakes with sugar and lemon juice, rolled them up and enjoyed!

  1. Last time I made pancakes I put on some Lingonberry jam. It was delightful and I bet it would be even better on crepes like these!
