Until Sunday, when I decided to get in some practise for Shrove Tuesday. I used a medium sized omelette pan, so the crepes weren’t huge, but they were crepes, and they worked, which is good enough for me! I guess a pancake recipe is a pancake recipe is a pancake recipe, but this is what worked for me:
2oz plain flour
Utterly scrumptious with lemon and sugar, or as dear Carl enjoyed his, with a melted bar of Terry’s chocolate orange!
The photographs show the daffodils that are cheering up my windowsill, and the other thing that has been taking up my time….cooking of a different kind….a nappy cake!
One of my best friends went on maternity leave today, and we had a collection for her, and we decided to make her a nappy cake for her gift. In essence, it is 90 nappies and some baby bits such as a bottle, blanket, booties and so on, wrapped and folded to make a cake! She loved it which I was really pleased about.
It is quite late on Friday night as I type this. I have just finished a glass of babycham….in a babycham glass of course…and I am enjoying the still of the evening. It is rare I have the energy to be up so late, so I am savouring it while I can. I think I will be a sleepy head tomorrow!
I will leave you with the pictures for now, and the promise of the recipe for the banana, rum and pecan bread and butter pudding that I made this week. (Anita, it is an American recipe! I had to convert it to English, and I know just what you mean about codes! Rather fun though!)
I hope you are having a lovely Friday night, wherever you are.
