What do you like on your pancakes?
a shake of sugar
a squeeze of lemon
a drizzle of Tate & Lyle's Golden Gorgeousness
a dollop of Nutella
a blob of jam
or something else?
[Or even a combination of any of the above]
I love Pancake Day - and Bob makes extremely good pancakes, so we shall be having some at lunchtime today [We are eating out with Adrian and Marion in the evening]
I do hope the weather is good for those racing with their frying pans in Olney [details here]
Tate and Lyle have an interesting website about pancakes [here] and a downloadable recipe book using both Golden Syrup and Black Treacle [here] They claim that "treacle gets its name from the
old French word triacle and the Latin theriaca, meaning an antidote to poison. In fact, for years people have believed Lyle's Black Treacle is beneficial in alleviating the symptoms of rheumatism and other complaints. Perhaps the natural goodness of the treacle fights the poison of the ailment"
Happy Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day everyone!
