Taste of Britain Tuesday- Pancakes 30/8/11

For todays Taste of Britain Tuesday, I chose the humble pancake.

British pancakes are different from the Canadian type I am used to. The main change is the thickness of the pancake, as well as the topping. They do have a similarity to French crepes as well...The batter in a British pancake is quite runny, compared to the thick Canadian batter.

Traditionally pancakes are eaten with lemon and sugar.

Right, thats enough writing about pancakes, eating them is far better.


  1. Canadian pancakes just look way better, just thick and covered in maple syrup. You can't go wrong with that! Yummm!

  2. Oh those are exactly like Mom's Swedish "thin pancakes"! A tradition around here! We all love 'em.

  3. Teaka, It is true, Canadian pancakes can be smothered in some delightful treats!

    Aunt Deb, sounds like the same thing to me! They are great :)

  4. Oh Sweedish thin pancakes are sooo good. I've yet to perfect them. These look pretty tasty. I'd be interested to try them with lemon like you say. Sounds good to me.
