Pancakes or crepes?

Apparently what we make are a type of crepe, according to a bloke on the radio.

The thick ones the yanks love and scotch pancakes are the proper deal.:thumbup:

Used to make them when the kids were at home, couldn't make them fast enough for the greedy buggers:biglaugh:

Bloke on radio is wrong. Next he'll be claiming that oatcakes are those Scottish abominations, not the God-given Staffy one.

Golden Syrup and lemon juice. Champion. I've just made 20, eaten 4, and I am now replete.

Stupid tradition. French eat them (Gallette's and Crepes) all the time. Why don't we?
We do. Or at least I do.

It took a couple of years training (every pancake day saying "these are so nice - we should eat them more often", then next pancake day realising we'd failed again) but now we have them a few times a year.

My missus makes the real deal ones and has done so for well over 40 years now.:):

I don't like the really thick ones, or the flimsy thin ones.

My missus cooks them to perfection in her ceramic omelette pan, dusts them with fine brown sugar, drizzles lemon juice on them before rolling them and then a touch more lemon and sugar when they all sit on my plate together rolled up and ready to eat. :):

I had a very nice Tomato and Mozzarella crepe last week. :paperbag:
That's you excommunicated then.

(See daily mash Pope story for details.)

(For what it's worth, I'm quite partial to a cheese sauce, chicken and gammon filling in a savoury pancake.)

The name of the day is (was) Shrove Tuesday, not a day named after a foodstuff.
I thought it was called Jif Lemon Tuesday, until the Pancake Corporation took it over with their crass commercialisation?

Or renaming Saturnalia as Christmas? ;)
