After yesterdays cake disaster I needed to get back on the horse and attempt a successful dish.
I nipped out to Puffin our campervan and returned with the tiny egg frying pan.
Today’s speciality is going to be Pancakes because I’m celebrating “Fat Saturday”. Yes I know pancakes are easy for most people, but I’m not most people when it comes to cooking.
Instead of the extra large rectangular pancakes that were produced on Fat Tuesday in the Boatie frying pan. I wanted the smaller, thicker ones with raisins and a hint of lemon. I’m sure I have seen them in Morrison’s supermarket called Scotch Pancakes
The Extreme knitter showed me how the make a batter mix (I did say I couldn’t cook) and left me to it.
No raisins in the larder, so I used sultanas and they are juicier than raisins anyway.
Having been prewarned that adding lemon juice to the batter mix might not be a good thing. The lemon would be added later after cooking.
I served the E/ knitter my version of a Scotch pancake with a dollop of Mackie’s Scottish ice-cream and to win favour I sprinkled it with chocolate.
Success, nothing burnt, which is always good for me and she asked for seconds.
I’ve been checking her vital signs on an hourly basis and she seems to have survived the ordeal.
