Mmm, pancakes - delicious!
So last night mum made pancakes as it was Shrove Tuesday. Traditionally, it was the day when Christians used up all the store-cupboard food before the abstinence of Lent began. So that means pancakes. How can flour, milk & egg taste so scrummy?
Mum mixed up the ingredients & heated up the pan. When the oil was hot she poured in some of the batter and swirled it around the pan. When it bubbled she flipped it over. I was really hoping it was going to flip right out of the pan & into my mouth, but alas, it landed in the pan the other way up, boo.
Mum said her & dad were having the traditional sugar & lemon juice with their pancakes, but that sounded rather boring to me, so I requested banana & cream cheese with mine, much more tasty I think you'll agree. Mum chopped it up into gulp-sized pieces, and mixed it up with the philly cheese & banana chunks.
