Meanwhile in the kitchen there were two cooking stations - the hob on the cooker itself, and our small camping ring on the breakfast bar.
Geoff came and helped Bob with the flipping and frying [thank you!!]
Over one hundred pancakes were served up and eaten.
Bob had made all the batter on Monday night and left it in the fridge.
He made himself 2 pancakes for breakfast and decided to tweak the recipe as it was a little bit thin, so added more flour [to be precise, his original recipe was from the Dairy Cookbook - but the final batter was using quantities from the Good Housekeeping Book]
Between 5.45 and 8.45 we had a constant stream of guests - including lots of happy - and very well behaved - children [who didn't make it into the photos] as well as some enthusiastic teenagers.
I got home just after 11pm, still buzzing with enthusiasm. Bob said I'd done OK [I do not know if anybody else listened to the broadcast] The house was spotless, the dishwasher humming...
Next morning I put out the recycling, which included an eggbox of empty plastic lemons and a can from the Canadian Maple Syrup someone donated to the party.
Confession - I then retrieved the can because I thought it was too cute to dispose of just yet, it may become a plant or pencil holder.My favourite toppings are either lemon juice and caster sugar or best Canadian Maple Syrup [but it has to be the pukka stuff, not that 'maple-flavoured syrup]
What do you put on your pancakes?
