As I am an American pancakes to me are round, thick and fluffy usually covered in maple syrup. In fact in the USA any day is Pancake Day!!
As I live in the UK I have also come to love the traditional Pancake Day, the day before Ash Wednesday the start of Lent. I am not very accomplished at making the British versions of a pancake so this year I decided to do a round up of pancakes available in the supermarkets at the moment.
I was sent some Flavorking plums from South Africa. They are available only from M&S, sweet and taste like candy and are only around for 3-4 weeks - a very short season indeed.
There are a few of the plastic containers called pancake shakers that you add water to a fill-line, replace the cover and shake vigorously until thick. Pour into the hot pan and continue as directed.
