Pancake day!

If like me you want to make pancakes today but have never done it before, you’ll be pleased to know that Delia explains it in great detail. I’ll be doing a couple after dinner tonight.
(For the unitiated, Delia Smith is the UK answer to Martha Stewart, except Delia lives in Norwich and not a prison cell)
Update: Pancakes went well, though I didn’t realise until I started cooking that Delia’s recipe is for 10-12 pancakes and I only wanted 2 (since one housemate had already eaten and the other is at a party), so I had to downsize the amounts quite a bit. First pancake was a bit of a disaster – I’d poured too much batter in and it got stuck halfway through being turned over and ended up as a bit of a mess, however I managed two more out of the remaining batter which both came out fine considering this was my first attempt. Thanks Delia! 🙂


  1. Cooking pancakes would be Andy’s job in this house, but he’s out. Actually, that’s probably good because I’m already on a sugary high – I don’t know how much sugar I could take.

  2. Woo. Pancakes baby. Bring it on!

  3. Seen that before 🙂 . There’s a whole site of them where the same rabbit has various items of confectionery balanced on his head.

  4. Apparently the first pancake always goes bad anyway 😉

  5. That’s true according to our master chief who cooked most of our pancakes today! The first one didn’t turn out too bad in the end.
