Pancakes – a family tradition

My dad makes the best pancakes! When I lived with my parents, my father made pancakes on Sunday evenings. I have not had my dad’s pancakes in years, so I was excited when he announced that he was making them for Mother’s day tea.

My dad has not lost his touch. He still flips the best pancakes. Especially when you add Canadian Maple syrup, cinnamon sugar, cream and a dash of fresh lemon juice.

    Cool action shot! How many times was this practised? And on who’s face did it land?

    Mate I wish I could flip a pancake like this! I’ve tried it many times, much to the dismay of, well, my kitchen floor & roof mostly! Let alone the mess in the rest of the kitchen that I have to clean!

    I can cook a great meal in many ways, but I can’t do the basics like pancakes and rice! Dumb clumsy fuck that I am, being a drummer and all!

    You gotta teach me!

    You will have to ask my dad to teach you, he is the expert :-) However, I got this on the third shot, so not too bad! I have heard about you legendary cooking, still waiting to taste it…

    Steffi, I have just had a look at a few pictures of Plinsen, and yes they look very similar to me. It is a tradition that needs to be kept active more often; they really were very good!
